Man is helpless in front of the nature’s fury. However, the
ability to recover every time from the extreme situations
distinguishes a human being from other animals. It is therefore
said that being human is more important than a human being. Jashoda
Sadan has stood true to this fact by rehabilitating children hit by
the devastating cyclone of 2009 that destroyed a number of lives in
Orissa. Located in the city of Cuttack, Jashoda Sadan has a three
storied building equipped with modern facilities that houses 65
cyclone-hit children who earlier were left helpless to starve under
a pitiless sky, without a roof over their heads and scanty clothes
to cover their bodies.
Emphasis is laid on physical, emotional and spiritual development of children. All the children attend the public schools nearby. Two study sessions are held daily, each lasting for two hours, in which the full time teachers appointed by the institution help children with their school work. There are also volunteers who work with the children regularly. The children are provided with textbooks, notebooks and all other necessary items required at school. Monthly practice tests are held in the institution to prepare the children. Extra coaching sessions are held during finals. Satsang in Jashoda Sadan is the time to regroup at the end of the day. After the evening prayer session, children hear about cultural, moral and spiritual lessons through stories and fables.
