My Home Orphanage

MY HOME is a shelter hosting 13 girls who are either orphaned or have a single parent. They are provided holistic support and are taken care of with utmost affection and care.

Our aim is to equip these children with a good education and a support system, so that they can become independent, confident and well prepared to take upon the challenges one encounters in various facets of life. We wish to inculcate in them a positive and a strong attitude towards life, and to build a value system in them so that they become capable of overcoming any hurdles that they face.

Since MY HOME is run by the donations we receive both in cash and kind, every little bit makes a really big difference in the lives of these girls. Your donation could help a young girl live a better life by ensuring her little comforts that would allow her to rewrite the story of her life.

“At the outset, the very thought of being socially associated with society and make ones presence felt in translating ideas and to transform in reality is something which always appears to be an abstract, because talking is something different to action, but I felt exception is in the case of Mrs Aruna who has chosen to tread a different path by choosing a career which brings smile in destitute children and ignored elderly women. “I am glad to vouch for Mrs. Aruna Diwakar and her social venture “Kritagyata”.

Vidya Spoorthi

Vidya Spoorthi is our flagship program to support the educational needs of the needy and under-privileged children in the society.

1. Book Drive: This is an yearly activity focusing on supporting the schooling materials for the children who can’t afford the same on the grounds of poor family background.

2. Guest Teachers: We provide teaching staff to the schools where there are aspiring children to study but no adequate teachers, most of the support is done in the rural schools.

3. Aksharabhyas Learning centre: This is an evening learning centre where children will have the extra cushion of tuition. We have two such centres helping more than 25 students in each activity. Two locations are a) Pulaganahalli b) Harihara

4. Computer Labs: We believe in digital learning for the children in urban schools or rural schools, we have been organising the computer labs with the teachers so that the children have the privilege to learn computers on par with today’s living.

5. Gift a Toilet to a Girl child: This is an unique activity which focuses on providing the basic hygiene infrastructure to the girls by building toilets in the schools where there are no toilets and the children are forced on open defecation. We have successfully completed more than 20 projects till today.

Sweccha is a unique programme designed to create awareness about menstrual hygiene, especially for women from low-income group families and young adolescent girls, by educating them about menstruation and female health, and equipping them with knowledge about basic and healthy menstrual hygiene practices.

Several surveys in India report that in our country, around 71% of adolescent girls remain unaware and uneducated about menstruation. Due to this lack of awareness, a huge number of girls drop out of schools because of their lack of awareness about this change that happens in their bodies. Young girls in and women in India suffer because despite menstruation being a biological process that happens in their own bodies, it is still considered to be a taboo topic, with stigma and shame attached to it as well.

It is crucial that as we move forward, we start having these conversations openly to destigmatize the shame attached to menstruation, as well as to normalize the conversations around it. People deserve to be educated about what happens in their bodies and what are the ways in which they can take good care of themselves, and avoid health and hygiene related issues caused by lack of access to good and decent products, as well as awareness about them.

Under the Sweccha awareness programme, we work with a few villages around Chintamani and Doddaballapur. As our pilot initiative, we have a dedicated team of volunteers and Asha workers who provide sanitary napkins to women who lack access to them, and create awareness about menstruation, sanitary pads, as well as the proper way to dispose them so as to not cause harm to the environment. Every adolescent girl and woman receives 10 sanitary napkins a month by us, and they are distributed by an assigned coordinator associated with the village self-help group.

Through the funds we receive, we will be able to reach out to more and more adolescent girls and women who do not have access to basic menstrual hygiene products, and lack awareness about it as well. Every penny is used to claim a woman’s right to access the most basic form of self care she can adopt.

A proper report will be maintained to make sure that the project does not suffer any sort of misuse or misinterpretation.


Prakruthi by name tells it is nature, This is an activity which focuses on environment, nature and our inclination towards the mother earth.

This program is divided into few verticals:

1. Seed ball making: This is a very unique activity of dirtying our hands brown to see the earth green. We involve volunteers, students, employees of corporates to make the seed balls and then the volunteers drop off these seed balls in barren lands and forest areas which is suffering from deforestation due to the greed of the mankind. We have involved many individuals to make and drop more than 2.5 lakhs seed ball in two years.

2. Sapling plantation: This activity involves the employees and volunteers to plant the saplings in their neighborhood or in schools which has adequate space to accommodate the saplings so that the children are inculcated with the practice of taking care of the plants and knowing the importance of nature and environment. It is 3000+ saplings which have been planted and nurtured till today in various schools and barren lands of urban and rural karnataka.

“Few years back, we a group of parents (which includes professional doctors and holistic healers) were looking to facilitate and advocate the use of ancient lifestyle practices to the needy one. One of the projects was to facilitate Ayurvedic way to building better brain power and help young children build immunity in a natural way called as Swarna Prashana. It was at that time, when we met Aruna, it was inspiring to see a person who appreciate the value of our ancient practices and follow the holistic advises with great dedication and commitment.”

It is indeed a great honor to say few words about her dedication. I seek the nature to support her in this highest form of humanity service.

The Impact

Through this project, we are reaching out to 10000+ children in Bangalore and the surrounding areas, and doing our bit to protect them against the COVID-19 pandemic.

From The Founder

There was always in me a passion to serve the needy to the best of my abilities and Kritagyata was born out of that passion. After spending over a decade working with various NGOs and doing several Volunteer Social Projects, I realized that the cracks within the societal wall just grew deeper and deeper as one plunged into it. As I became aware of how much disparity exists in our society and how unequal opportunities govern the lives of so many individuals, I decided to take things one step ahead and started working towards fixing these cracks in whatever little capacities I could. Kritagyata Trust finally saw the light of day and has been the source through which I try to fulfill my dream of giving back to society and making people’s lives better.

Then came a moment when I, after months of introspection and encouragement from various people, finally decided to walk on a path which is not taken by many. Starting Kritagyata was my way of expressing gratitude towards the God who has given me a wonderful and a meaningful life; for my family who always stood by me as I tried to give back to society, in all the capacity I could. So many individuals currently in the lower strata of the society did not choose the circumstances they were born in, and if we are the ones who are blessed with certain privileges, then we should try and redress the imbalance that exists in our society.

I visited this orphanage as a part of a team and had fun with kids through activities like origami, diya painting etc. It's very well managed and maintained. The children were confident and was happy to know that the children are doing their schooling in a near by private institution. The orphanage seems to be really bringing the vision of Beti Bachao Beti Padao to a reality. I was told that the kids are single parented and most of the practices at orphanage which were explained by the management are with a vision to have ensure children become valuable individuals of the society. I was told that this orphanage is registered and maintains transparency in all respects. If anyone is willing to donate then they get a receipt which can be showcased for tax exemption. I would certainly recommend to visit this orphanage, if you are looking to visit one.
