To embrace any orphaned girl child in the 5-7 years age group, irrespective of her caste, colour, creed or ethnicity, and to raise her as our own, providing her with food, shelter, clothing, education and health care.
Chinmaya Vijaya Orphanage, in Kaza, Andhra Pradesh, is a non-political, non-government, all girls orphanage that was formed in 2007 under the patronage of CORD. Built on five acres of land, it is committed to the care of orphaned and homeless girls. It provides them with a family, a home, education, recreation and builds a strong foundation to prepare the girls to face life independently by providing them with professional and/or vocational training. The aim is to absorb them into the social mainstream and help them, if they choose, with the completion of their education, employment, and/or marriage.
Seva at CORD is the straight route to Gurudev's (Swami Chinmayananda) heart.
