Ganesa Sankari Home, (Previously Janakalyan sevashram,Chennai ) started in the year 2002 as an old age home for the unsupported, underprivileged old men and women and also for the children who are deprived of care and love of near ones.
It presently houses and feeds 22 inmates. It is sustained by the donations of large hearted Philanthropists. It accepts even small donations in cash and kind for food, clothing, medicine, and sanitary needs of the resident senior citizens who are treated with great care.
It has been operating in rented premises ever since its inception.( it was paying Rs.18,000/month.) With residential localities becoming more and more expensive in terms of rent, it moved to the present premises in 2012. However, this building was constructed at enormous financial strain. (At present it is paying Rs.12,000/month as interest).This building land of 1,800 sq.ft was from the founder's family but with little donations and 8 lacks loan the building was completed with many constrains. At present it is not able to accommodate more deserving old age people as it is becoming increasingly difficult to accommodate in this place.
Hence Ganesa Sankari Home also has proposals to construct own new bigger welling place as the present premises is not able to accommodate more people also due to shortage of space. Ganesa Sankari Home wants to accommodate as many deserving senior citizens as it can, provided it has enough space. Keeping all these things in view it has started dreaming its future goal.
