Divine Will Foundation in cooperation with PBMT is also supporting the construction of a beautiful new campus in the rural village of Tumkur, about 80 Miles from the city of Bangalore. This campus is a special program of the USA region which is building the infrastructure of this much-needed campus. It will provide 6th to 12th grade education and will feature all needed facilities to provide the highest level of character and academic education including the most up to date computer labs.
Named Sri Sathya Sai Karunya Niketanam (Abode of Compassion), this campus will be located on over 40 acres of land. The 120,000 square feet of buildings will provide classrooms, living accommodation for students and staff, conference halls, dining facilities and a kitchen for food preparation. Additionally, there will be parks and a number of sports fields for the student’s physical development.
This campus is a “start from scratch” project in that we will need to build secured boundaries, roads, drinking water facilities and a sewage treatment plant. Like all of the Loka Seva Group of Institutions, Tumkur is designed to be as “green” as possible and will also feature solar power generating facilities.
SSS Karunya Niketanam is already in operation. The land has been purchased and temporary structures housing and educating 53 students and 10 staff are in use. The first phase of the permanent school/hostel construction has begun. The final phases are estimated to be completed in 3-5 years.
As in all of our institutions, education will be imparted free of cost. Additionally, all students from lower income will be given room and boards, clothes, books and other necessities free of cost.
