About SSVVS Kendram

SSVVS Kendram was inaugurated on 18th Nov, 1999 in the premises of Sivaji Sphoorthi Kendram, Srisailam and later on 14-12-2002 it was shifted to its Own Premises at Gokavaram (Land and Construction of Buildings Donated by Late Sri G.Pulla Reddy, Kurnool). 

Our Preliminary survey revealed that Chenchus lack cultural cohesion, self-confidence and Awareness. Inorder to boost up all these Qualities we conducted several events. As a first service activity in this direction we started with the chidren's education and started Bhaktha Kannappa Gurukulam(BKG) on 18th NOv 1999. BKG is a residential educational programme which include Genaral Eduaction upto X class and vocational Technical Training Viz.Carpentry, Rural Electrican, Engine Mechanic e.t.c. This programme helps in developing the Leadership and Entrepreneur Qualities, become the hub of the development in their villages.

As a Second step we conducted "Awareness Camps " and " Short term Skill-development Training Programmes " to motivate them for Self development and development of their viallage. Healthcare Programmes are also being conducted in many villages.

Basing on the observations and interaction with the chenchu participants in the "Awareness Camps" conducted by Sevabharathi in 2001, it was noted that the “Health” problems amongst chenchus need to be given second priority next to children’s education.
There are about (16) Primary Health Centres (PHC) in the mandals, where the chenchus are living with a population of abut (7915) in (13) mandals only (as per the government records) against (54) mandals in the district.
As a part of upliftment of Tribals and to bring them into the mainstream of the society, SSVVS Kendram has been orchestraing a concerted and sustained campaign.
