Aadarana as an NGO was started by Mr. Madhava Rao in 2003. A boys orphanage home was established first. Aadarana girls orphanage home was then established in 2007. A total of 26 children between the age 5 and 15 live in a 2 bed room rented flat on the 5th floor of an apartment in Saroor Nagar, Hyderabad. Aadarana was established with a motto to help the orphans by providing them accommodation, education, knowledge under one roo--above and beyond the love and affection of the parents that they lost. Aadarana is dedicated to providing various facilities and imparting training to fulfill the aims and objectives to make the orphan children stand upon their feet and to see themselves as the Nation’s most respectable citizens.
The establishment of Aadarana was initiated by Mr. Dhamma Mitra Madhavarao along with his friends, educationists and philosophers. DM Madhavarao was inspired from childhood by the service rendered to the people by great personalities like Mother Theressa, Dr. BR Ambedkar, Bhanthe Sangharakshitha (T.B.M.S.G) etc. He made up his mind to follow their path by serving mankind. Sharing his thoughts with his like-minded friends, colleagues, relatives and family members evoked a positive response and with their support and service, Aadarana was established.
