The funding raised will be used by the organization to support this initiative.

SRC has been operating majorly in the following areas during the current year 2022 – 2023, which are need based and are shown below:
1) Sirisha Disha cum Vikaas Centre (Special School for Differently abled Children): At SRC we bring Children in our own School Vans to our Special School for the Children (in the age group of 6 - 18 years) with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation and other associated disabilities. SRC has got suitable environment with facilities to provide need based services and supports to the Beneficiaries on both residential and day care basis with better protection and security. Currently we have 8 Special B.E.D Teachers , 3 Drivers , 5 Supporting staff working in our Organization.

2) SRC Hostel facility for the Orphans and Specially abled Children: We at SRC have Free Hostel facility for 50+ children who are orphans or left behind by there parents due to their Mental health conditions. We operate these Hostels at 2 of our facilities each in Veerankilock and Vuyyuru with 6 supporting staff working relentlessly to take care of the needs for our children.  We take care of Food, Clothing, Medical, Educational and Vocational training needs of our Children.


3) Food Distribution to Old Aged Citizens:  At SRC Daily we distribute Food in Hot packs specially cooked and packed at our centers to Senior Citizens to almost 10+ Villages and 50+ vulnerable and isolated Senior citizens who are unable to cook or meet their daily Food expenses. We started this program in Covid 19 pandemic and continuing the food distribution even post pandemic based on the situation and need. We provide the following facilities to the Senior citizens:
  • Nutritious Food packed in hot Packs for Lunch and Dinner.
  • Medial camps and free medicine distribution.
  • Clothing distribution based on requirement.
  • Other basics needs based on the feedback from our food distributing volunteers.
4) Sirisha Home Based Centre (SHBC): On priority, SRC has developed this project for students who are physically not capable to reach our special schools in the Rural Villages situated in Krishna District of Andhra Pradesh and to reach the targeted groups in their Home / Community. The study area of this Project covers parts of three mandals namely Vuyyuru, Kankipadu, & Thotlavallure.
              Over 25 students are getting benefited by this project, the team of SRC has continued the need based services and supports like training in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), Behavior Modification, Physiotherapy, Speech & Communication, Support Devices, Fun & Learning Activities, Academics, Leisure & Recreational Activities, and Aids & Appliances to the targeted groups at their home with better participation of their Parents, Siblings and other Family Members.            Such service model (HBR – Home Based Rehabilitation) has attracted the neighbors and other community members to accept such children and families with respect and dignity. In addition to the regular training and rehabilitation, SRC has extended the support of Masks, Sanitizers, Medicine, Health Care, Dry Ration, Vegetables, Cooked Food, and other needs as majority of them are affected emotionally, economically, and socially due to the present pandemic and could withstand to some extent with the hope for better services and supports on regular basis with better connectivity.

Currently we cook food daily for around 150 people(90+ Special children, 50+ senior citizens, 10 Supporting staff).
