Many of the inmates are now holding high positions in the Government like police officers, Defense officers, University Professors, School Teachers and in other various capacities. Observing this Government of India had nominated the name of Dr.Madhu Krishan for a prestigious Award and Gold medal.

A brief Activity Report of some of the important humanitarian works carried are furnished below.

Dr.Madhu Krishan through his Government Registered Humanitarian Organization “SNAHALAYA ASHRAM” ( completed 25 years of dedicated service for the poor and marginalized sections of the villages located in Port Blair, Andaman Islands & also of Mainland of India, besides carrying out Mega Relief Works during the Earth Quake in Gujarat, Lathur, Pakistan & regular Flood affected areas in various parts of India.. We have been able to make a difference in the lives of socially and economically weaker sections of the settlements, especially among the poor and other socially backward and underprivileged.

The Society was running Schools, Home for needy children, Vocational Training Centers  located in the remote areas of the islands, till Tsunami Disaster Devastated on 24th Dec’2004 but after restoration back, it has  School & Community centers  are located in Parthrupur,  Namunaga, and Choldhari & at other parts of main land of India.

A home for the needy children has been run by our society since the society was established in 1985. This children’s home has been in operation from 1985, . The home has currently about 12000 inmates whose education and living expenses are totally met by the society. Some of the children raised in the home are now occupying responsible positions in the society as senior government officials, medical and engineering professionals. A total of about five thousand children have passed through the home to become responsible members of the society.(A Separate details are enclosed)

The Society also runs Vocational Training Centers in seven locations in the A & N Islands with about 45 to 50 students in each of them getting training for a period of three months each in such skills as cane works, embroidery, tailoring, fish and prawn pickling.

The Society also is running Crèche’s and preschools in several locations in the islands & Mainland of India.

The Society also runs a Cultural academy wherein children are being trained in Bharath Natyam and other cultural expressions.

In addition to our work we built temporary and permanent shelters for the Earthquake and Tsunami affected people for 5000 families in Phase manner.

Further, the Society has provided for skilled workers for constructing more then 10,000 houses for the Tsunami  effected free of cost.

We have paid special attention to the education needs of our target groups and it is our considered view and hope that in the years to come also we would be able to allocate more of our attention and resources to this sector which is crucial for not only sustenance level incomes but also are instrumental in empowering these groups and move them out of poverty and social deprivation forever. We would like to record here our gratitude and thanks for the contributions of the members as well as its wishers. Without such cooperation and generosity, we would not have been able to achieve what we have during twelve years of successful and productive work for the causes we have committed ourselves.

Awareness Generation Regarding Social Welfare Programmes of the Government.

By virtue of our constant touch with the residence of our target area, it was understood that many of the people were unaware of several welfare programme of the Government related to maternal and child health, nutrition, social security and support for widows. Residents of our target area who would qualify and are entitled to the intended benefits of the programmes were indentified programme wise and they were helped in initiating necessary official procedures for receiving such benefits. Such beneficiaries include the following.

➣       Nutritional supplement for pregnant women;

➣       Water, Sanitation & Medical care for mothers and children

➣       Awareness programs for disaster management

➣       Stipend for school going female children

➣       Awareness programs for disaster preparedness

Environmental Sanitation and Safe Water Supply Programmes:

Some remote village, Namu Nagat & others did not have safe drinking water available to the poor and weaker sections. By the concerted efforts of Snahalaya Ashram, which enlisted the cooperation of the residents in generating voluntary contribution, a substantial amount was mobilized. Supply of household provisions and kitchen kit were distributed to 181 families who were allotted intermediate shelters at Namu  Ghar , a model Tsunami village, which has rain water harvesting system, area drainage foot paths, internal roads, water supply, street lights and provision for storage of ration LPG gas, barber shops health centre, day care centre etc.

Mega Relief works for Tsunami:

A relief work was inaugurated at Government JDMD school relief camp. This camp was adopted for one month for cooking and feeding food, medical care with a team of doctors, clothing, and counseling with a team of expert counselors. we dispatched 10 mt tones of relief materials such as medicine, dry ration, chlorine tablets, medicine for prevention for epidemic diseases,  & torch lights to the people in Car Nicobar Islands.                   

Community Kitchen:

Snahalaya Ashram adopted Twelve  relief camps at GSSS at Bathbasti and Nirmala School & other Schools camps and we were running a community kitchen from 13th January 005 onwards till the People were shifted to Shelters.. We also distributed clothing, sanitary kits, mosquito kits, educational kits and medical care to the inmate.

In association with ISM and Disaster Co ordination Committee, we took responsibility for construction of 200 houses for the victims of tsunami as per the model and direction of the A and N and with administration and also confirmed to run the relief camp for more than two months at a new place, Yatric Barrack at Chakkar Gaon till the victims were shifted to Shelters. 

Social Awareness on disaster preparedness:

Orientation for disaster preparedness was organized to school students, to both Boys and Girls took active part. We stressed on the importance of rainwater harvesting and formation methods of Science and Environment units in the target area. Our programme has enhanced awareness levels regarding rainwater harvesting and hence attitude towards it. The impact can be seen in the perceptible behavior change among the target groups as well as among the broader underprivileged community, which seems to have created awareness in the target areas. Similarly, in order to create awareness among the farmers and fishermen and surrounding villages in which 132 youths attended the orientation.

National Integration, Peace & Unity programme:

Snahalaya Asharam organized several programs on National Integration, Peace & Unity  Cultural Programme to inculcate among the residents the need for maintaining the  Peace & unity of the country and create awareness regarding elimination of fissiparous tendencies in the society.

Remedial Classes:

Snahalaya Ashram is running remedial free coaching classes for the academically weak school going children & also for School drop outs..

INCOME GENERATION- Micro- Credit, and Self Employment and Vocational training:

We implemented the project in, Chennai, Trichy, Madurai of Tamilnadu. The direct beneficiaries under this project are 12000 Dalit women. A sum of Rs. 5000.00 was distributed to Each Dalit women Shelf Help Groups. The members joined together are involved in the embroidery work and marketing the embroidery products in and around Chennai. During the initial period of two months, the beneficiaries faced difficulties is finding work due to scanty demand for their work. Now due to the timely supply of raw materials provided by the retailers and whole sale buyers from North India on receipt of indents from the self help groups, women are profitably employed in a continuous and regular basis.

We have also formed Self Help groups in the Andaman & Nicobar Island who are trained in making and marketing fish and prawn pickle to support fisherman victims of Tsunami and the Earthquake.


Snahalaya Asharam has helped in repairing the sea damaged sea walls, bunds, dykes and restoration works of irrigation projects, wells check dams, spillway with sluice gate arrangement, application of organic matter, gypsum, high value agriculture and cropping programs, integrated farming, livestock’s biofencing by mangrove plantation, monitoring and implementation with technical supports.


Snahalaya Ashram conducted consumer awareness programmes to create awareness about consumer rights. During the year under review, Snahalaya Ashram had conducted 6 different types of programmes in this regard. The selected target groups were youth, students, women, local leaders and SHG’S WOMEN. The under taken programmes were public awareness meeting, consumer awareness seminar. Consumer rights workshops programme. More than 1900 participants from six target project areas benefited from the programs, malpractices of price, food adultery and consumer laws formed major topics on which awareness was created. Several key resource persons related to consumer organizations were involved as resource persons.


Snahalaya Ashram implemented the programme of Human Rights Education for rural women and girl children in its target area to give voice against women atrocities. When we implemented the programme, following issues emerged during interaction with the participants:

1.   Denying properties to daughters, widows from father and husband side through the act of property to women in force.

2.   Maintenance is denied for widows and separated wives.

3.   Partiality is shown to feminine gender in feeding, education and social care.

4.   The basic rights of women and girl children are denied as well as violated in all stages from child hood to old age. For example sex harassment in working places, over load of work in housekeeping as well as working area, practicing early marriages, and polygamy.

5.   To overcome from about said issues and problems, Snahalaya Ashram organized seminars, orientation, consultation, counseling to the affected victims.

6.   In addition, we also referred the cases to local Help Cell to get legal support and remedy.                           

We also prepared distributed IEC materials in which message and slogans are displayed about rights of women and children: Some of the examples are) Women and laws;

(b) Property ownership rights to women: (c) Marriage Acts; Special marriage Act (Inter religion/caste marriages; (e) Divorce Act as follow up activities.


Snahalaya Ashram had taken the survey to know the conditions of the Child labor where it was found that the children were employed in textiles and power looms industries, and automobile workshops. To improve the education and social status of the children, Snahalaya has implemented elimination of child labor programmes consisting of two hours per day. They were provided with sports and recreation facilities such as carom boards, sports and games for one hour. The second hour was used for imparting literacy and numeracy education. Snahalaya Ashram gave the two animators of the culture of child labour even though the children provide additional income to the family. Child labor destroys enjoyment of the joys of childhood by the child workers and their future social mobility.  In addition, they are deprived of love, affection, social interaction and human dignity.  Snahalaya Ashram is proposing to implement the alternative permanent employment for parent school-aged children and dropouts are the main focus of the proposed programmed. This year we have enrolled 23 children in the existing schools.


Snahalaya Ashram formed 43 women sangams in its project villages. The sangams are promoting savings and credit system is the group. The beneficiaries save a part of money from their daily earnings. The savings money is given as small loans to the sangam members on priority basis. Snahalaya Ashram maintains ledger books, cash book, and individual savings pass book and all records for better understanding, accounting angles. Each member saves Rs.25-30 on a fortnight. The money is deposited in the bank for group loan aspects according to the needs of the members as per the priority of emergency. The sangam is running effectively.


The aim is to keep our environment clean and green and water resource development books were prepared printed and distributed to village community for better maintenance of water resources like bore-wells, public wells, rivers and lakes etc., Cycle rally was organized to give awareness to rural people.

Our Mother Earth  has a Bank of ‘youths’ with those between 15-35 years age group, accounting for about 40% of the total world population. Youth  is not a homogenous group and can be categorized  mainly based  on  location  (urban,  rural); gender (male, female)  and  role  (student,  non-student, employed,  unemployed,  parent  and  citizen). The youth is an important phase in life and this phase of "youth-hood"  comprises  of not  only  a  physical  and  psychological  change  but  also role  change  in  family  as well as in society.  Abundant creative energies and  talents of youth are neither  fully tapped by society nor  realized by the youth  themselves,  resulting in  detrimental  effect  on  self  as well  as  society.

As we advance socially, scientifically and economically, we find new barriers emerging. This is most evident when assessing the growing gap between urban and rural communities. We must remember as, Mahatma Gandhi once envisaged that “India lives in villages”. New development opportunities can be unleashed for rural communities if the development machinery interfaces with people and particularly our youth. It is also observed that there is dearth of educated youth with inclination for social causes for efficient implementation of developmental programmes and plans in rural areas. The paradox of the situation is that our educational institutions are bringing out thousands and thousands of professionally qualified youth every year who universally aspire for well-paid jobs and there only a few who are willing to involve themselves into rural development initiatives. Thus the rural development sector is in want of educated youth with varied disciplinary backgrounds to spur development of rural India.

In the world demographic segment, youth has tremendous potential. They can contribute enormously to community development. However, a well-defined approach of engaging young people needs to be articulated and the policies and programmes should provide them the right direction and develop the appropriate mindset so that their energies are properly channeled into productive, forward-looking and worthwhile contours. For Mahatma Gandhi, every human being has intrinsic value; he or she should be properly nurtured and guided towards realization of his /her fullest potential so that they become useful to themselves, the community and the nation at large.

Situation today:

A high proportion of rural youth in the world are directly affected by the problems of poverty, illiteracy, malnutrition, un-employment, violence, natural disasters and other socio-economic concerns/problems. The youth are also victims of exclusion from rights and opportunities. It is obvious that there is a great need to encourage rural, tribal youth, especially those susceptible to exposure to wrong ideas and undesirable behaviors.

Youth Sensitization Programme: 

Among its multiple initiatives, We would accords priority to focus on programmes for sensitizing youth, through rural exposure particularly those enrolled in professional institutions located in urban centers. The rural exposure would focus on the rural ethos and issues and problems of rural areas. Similarly, Our Future programmes will empower rural youth with skill development, entrepreneurship and knowledge of rural technologies.

We will Focus On:

·                     Transformation of youth in favor of approaches based on non-violence in the pursuit of development and nation-building.


·                     Encouraging, motivating rural youth to shoulder leadership roles in grass-roots development.


·                     Inculcating in rural youth the values of universal brotherhood and zeal for selfless service towards the wellbeing of the community.


·                     Making social and educational interventions aimed at capacity and character building of youth.


·                     Enabling the youth to overcome social divides and to work for peace and communal harmony.


·                     Promoting solidarity among youth of India through various extensions programmes and enables them to realize their full potential.


Under this programme We will  proposes a variety of activities aimed at influencing the youth so that they develop orientations and attitudes favorable to resolution of conflicts and maintenance of peace through non-violence approaches.
