Society in Hyderabad
Mother Teresa has remarked, “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
Some NGOs also concentrate on environmental issues such as tree plantation, creating awareness about planting trees and harmful effects of global warming. On the legal platform, NGOs have also contributed significantly on making common people aware about laws that protect women. At the local level, many voluntary organizations work against evils such as superstitions and witch craft etc. which are still practiced in villages.
Sphoorti Foundation, Care and Love Welfare Society, Ankuram, Venkateshwara Social Service Association, Sivanda Rehabilitation Home, Satya Sai Seva Sangh, Needy Illiterate Children Education (NICE), Aadita - The Beginning, are few of the NGOs in Hyderabad.
Old Age Homes in HyderabadOld people need love and care. After retirement, they do not know how to spend their time and be useful for the society. The best thing is to prepare for life after retirement well in advance by learning a skill and investing money wisely. However, for myriad reasons, some old brethren prefer staying in old age homes to enjoy independence, timely health checkups, practice yoga and meditation and spend their lives peacefully.
The old age homes in Hyderabad are a boon for the parents who want to be independent and want to spend their silver years peacefully. Staying among other old members of their age, they feel happy and secure. Loneliness also does not bother them in old age homes. They are able to learn new skills or teach others what they already know.
Smiles, V.N.R. Senior Citizens Home, Shanti Old Age Home with branches in Singareni Colony, Saroor Nagar and Dilsukh Nagar, Satya Sai Seva Sangh in Gachibowli, Senior Citizens Home in Nehru Nagar, Sanghamitra Home for the Aged in Secunderabad are some old age homes for senior citizens in Hyderabad.
However, just like mother's love, nothing can replace the warmth and loving atmosphere of living in a family. Our old parents are power-house of knowledge and it is our duty to serve and love them during their twilight years and enjoy family life under the umbrella of their blessings.
Women's Organizations in HyderabadWomen's organizations in Hyderabad work for upliftment of women who are living in distress. Women are educated to make them more confident individuals, taught some skills like tailoring, music ornament making, craft and basket making etc. so that they become independent and are able to fend for themselves and their family. Health check-ups are carried out from time to time to diagnose health issues and treat them early.
Classes are conducted free of cost in fashion designing, zari work, fabric painting, beautician course, so that they are able to earn their livelihood. Prime importance is given to make them self reliant.
Women's organizations in Hyderabad include Children & Women Welfare Organization in Rajendra Nagar, Twin Cities Women's Welfare Association on PG Road, Women Development Child Welfare and Disabled Welfare Department on 2nd floor, Secretariat and SAB Women's Organization in Alibad.
Orphanages in HyderabadSome children are not lucky enough to enjoy the company of their parents while growing up. There are many orphanages for these children of God in Hyderabad. Here, they are imparted formal education, are taught skills such as driving, painting etc. and given a life of security and love. Abilashrayam in Yousufguda, Vcare Orphanage in Ranga Reddy, Sai Seva Sangh in Hi Tech city and Trinity Service Society in Saidabad are some orphanages in Hyderabad.
Organizations for the Blind and Physically Handicapped in HyderabadHelen Keller has remarked that some people have sight but no vision. Today, blindness in no way hampers education and learning for those who are willing to work hard. There are instances when the blind have become music directors, have proved their mettle in All India exams and have made beautiful paintings from the paint of love in their heart! Blind people have been employed in Information Technology Companies and have risen to high posts too.
Devnar Foundation for the Blind in Begumpet, Sunethra School for the visually challenged and differently able, Development & Welfare Association of the Blind, Laksshyam my Global School and Medha Society in Hyderabad are working for the rehabilitation of the blind people and other disabled people.
True, no one is perfect in this imperfect world. So, instead of sitting and being depressed about our disability, let us explore and emphasize on the possibilities! Keep smiling!
