The vision is to enable them to transform into responsible and responsive citizens of the society, and leaders in their chosen fields.

At ATMA Gurukulam, the children are given much more than food and shelter. They are given the love, care, and security of a real home, where they can be safe and happy. There are two resident caretakers and a resident child welfare officer, who take care of the food, accommodation and safety needs of the children. Other trained ATMA volunteers visit regularly and stay with the children to provide educational, counselling or mentoring support.

The children attend Sree Sarada Girls’ Higher Secondary School, Puranatuukara, till 12th standard, and then move on to pursue degree courses of their choice in reputed colleges. Apart from regular education, all children are given:
