What is Aadarana?
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 35 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 roof--above and beyond the love and affection of the parents that they lost. Aadarana is dedicated to providing various facilities and imparting training to the needy and orphan girl children.

What is ASHA's role?
Asha works with the project partner, which is Madav Rao for Aadarana. Our mission is not only to look at issues concerning access to education, but also to ensure that every child has access to an education that is meaningful. We try and ensure that nutrition and health care needs of the children are met.
Asha Dallas chapter and Asha Hyderabad chapter work together to ensure proper functioning of the orphanage in terms of funds distribution and the welfare of the kids. A donor is welcomed to visit the site and interact with the project partner.

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.
