Building Jayamma Mane: Interiors

Ask for an update

Story

Jayamma was an 80-year-old resident of Doddaballapur, in rural Bangalore. She lived with her family. She lost her husband, and then, her only son. Her family threw her out of their home, and she survived on her meagre pension of ₹500/$8 a month. She narrated her story to Rakesh Shukla, founder of VOSD, and VOSD for People, when she hitched a ride to the bus stand in his van. A few months ago, her situation had deteriorated so much that she jumped into a well, and killed herself.

We lost Jayamma, but we can’t leave the destitute of rural Bangalore without a clean, safe home. A place where they can spend their last days in peace. Be provided for. Kept safe. Jayamma Mane – Kannada for Jayamma’s Home. At VOSD, we already provide large-scale nutrition, and medical care. We have sound processes, and technology expertise. We are committed.  

We will build Jayamma Mane in a phased manner, and we are raising funds for separate tasks.

  • Phase 1 will provide permanent residence for 35-40 people
  • Custom-built permanent structure 10,000 sq. ft. area earmarked for this, with similar area available for expansion
  • Separate ladies and gents dormitories with independent sleeping for 20 people each
  • Elder-friendly furniture
  • 24x7 power backup for entire facility
  • Kitchen to serve three meals and three snacks/teas
  • Basic but nutritious daily meal of rice, chicken/ eggs, vegetables, and dal
  • 24x7 CCTV surveillance of all dorms, kitchens, common and outdoor areas (other than toilets and bathrooms)
  • 24x7 doctor on call
  • One dedicated helper for each 10 residents + support staff
We need your help to make this happen -- please help fund the interiors of Jayamma Mane, including a kitchen, 4 toilets, and 2 bathrooms.
