What we are
Akshaya foundation, a charitable, non-profit Trust was created on 06.09.2004 with the objective to serve the unserved. Initially the trust was undertaking community oriented services. It was organizing medical camps, Blood donation camps jointly with likeminded NGOs. It was also organizing blood donors for persons in need. Later the trustees felt the need of starting a old age home for the destitute women on 19.06.2005 at Pallavaram in a rented house with an initial strength of 5 members and now with 12 inmates due to space constrains. We do not compromise in quality of food. By the grace of God till date we procure good quality rice and groceries. The inmates are given tea at 7 am and idly, dosa or pongal as breakfast at 8.30 am. The lunch is good quality rice with sambar and a vegetable curry and rasam served at 1 pm. Tea and biscuit is given at 4 pm. Dinner is served at 8 pm. The quality of food served is at par with paid homes or rather better quality. Once in a week non vegetarian food is served as lunch. The home is with fans, television, good toilet and other facilities and above all compassion.
A piece of land measuring 7 cents was purchased at Dr. Ambedkarnagar, Gokulam Colony, Karanaipuduchery (Eastern side of Urapakkam), KancheepuramDistPin 603 202 at a cost of Rs.5 lacs by borrowing around Rs.3.5 lacs. It is adjacent to Forest , pollution free and within the colony. Now we have started construction of a building measuring around 1200 square feet. The project cost is Rs.25 lac to complete the first floor. Again by borrowing around 6.00 lac and donations received the foundation has been laid, the pillars are raised and walls have been built up to lintel level. The construction could not be completed for want of financial support.We need financial support to provide quality food, good medical care and to complete the construction work. We too have plans to start a respire home. Elders living in the neighborhood who need food, clothing, medical care, etc will be brought in the morning to the home and in the evening they will be dropped back in their home by vehicle. We too plans to start a study centre where the poor students from neighboring villages will be given coaching in English, Maths, science subjects, etc .
