The children at Kanavagam are provided with all their basic needs – comfortable shelter, nutritionally balanced food, and
regular medical care. We have periodical medical and dental visits for the children. We have a carefully crafted nutritious meal
chart by our dedicated team that includes nutritionist.


Kanavagam is situated near good schools, where the children interacts with the local community and become a part
of the society at large. We also provide opportunities for various extracurricular activities such as sports, music, dance and art to
provide a well-rounded education. Children are given guidance and mentor-ship to identify their interests and strengths, and each
child will be supported to pursue their dreams.


We believe that good character is the key to a successful, peaceful and happy life. By instilling good values in the
children from an early age, we hope to not only make a difference in the lives of the children at Kanavagam, but to also make a
difference in society as a whole.

In addition to these three core pillars, we also provide the children with the love and care of a foster mother. These foster mothers
are women who will dedicate their lives to these children, and they selected and trained carefully. Every 5 children have foster
mother, which takes care of their needs.

Kanavagam is a 100% transparent organization compliant with all the local, regional and state regulations. At Kanavagam we
believe that it is our duty to provide these orphaned kids who have lost everything with the same family, stability and love all
children deserve to grow up with. Our goal is to break the cycle of corrupt and substandard orphanages in India by creating a new
model for orphanages – a model that provides the highest level of care, education, health and support. Our dream is to make their
dreams come true!!
