ABALASHRAMA & FOUNDERS

Abalashrama organization was founded in the year 1905. We are proud to mention that Late  Sri  Chakaravathy  Venkatavarada lyengar paved the way for establishing  Abalashrama at the dawn of the 20th century by marrying Smt Krishnamma, a childhood widow.  The noble ideals of Arya Samaj, his personal zeal for helping deprived women, and the support he received from his life partner sowed the seeds for this unique institution. Having resolved to make a  beginning, the couple converted their own modest home into a sanctuary for abandoned women in 1905.

At present the Abalashrama houses more than 100 residents, aged 16 to 25. Many of them have participated in contests in their colleges and other institutions and have won various laurels. These children express a deep interest in the arts, commerce, computer courses and the administration of the Abalashrama has initiated programs aimed at choosing education of their choice and help them develop their artistic skills.
