Centre for people with Special Needs

Our Mission

Akshaya Kshetram is a charitable organisation, based in Andhra Pradesh, South India, which cares for and educates mentally and physically challenged people of all ages. The organisation is based on 2.5 acres of land in the village of Durga Samudram – roughly 10km south of Tirupati, the site of the Sri Venkateswara temple.

Our Activities

There are 120 mentally and physically challenged people at the Akshaya Kshetram Ashram. Most are children and most belong to low income families, who are being supported by the staff with guidance on how to take care of their children when at home.

Sponsor a Resident

Akshaya Kshetram has a scheme to sponsor a resident for just Rs. 3000 per month per person.

Donations from abroad are welcomed and can be made at a minimum of US $30 or equivalent per resident per month. Donors are able to pay by cheque, direct debit or cash. Cheques should be made payable to “Akshaya Kshetram”.
