Contact the Circle
The Circle of Goodwill is an organisation initiated with the inspiration of Dr K. Parvathi Kumar to render service to the poor and needy of the society in the fields of health, education, animal welfare (Go-Seva), environmental protection, free meal distribution and culture.
The main objective of the Circle is to pool economic and human resources from the service minded people and channelize such resources towards charitable purposes and programs for the benefit of the poor and needy.
The Circle functions with humility and simplicity. Like minded people can join the Circle and offer themselves to the activity of the goodwill in each and every way they wish to. Goodwill is an open ended activity and is not limited to a specific concept or religion or caste or creed. It is purely meant “to serve life”.
Free Meal Distribution
The Circle provides free meals on a daily and weekly basis to the poor, disabled, and poor school children. Every day, roughly 1,800 poor children studying at Mithila Vidyalayam children schools are fed through this free meal program. In addition, weekly and monthly food donations are performed at various places in Andhra Pradesh.
The Circle has taken up various programs to promote education for the benefit of the poor and needy, providing assistance at all levels of education.
The Circle has established 7 Mithila Vidyalayam children schools and provides totally free education, including books, clothing, and food, to the children from slums. Classes are being conducted from the 1st grade to the 10th grade. These schools have catered to the needs of more than 6,500 children from slums.
The Circle also provides financial assistance to the poor and needy who are educating their children in other schools. More than 2,700 children have benefited from this program. The Circle also extends financial help to those pursuing college level education and those pursuing professional degrees.
The Circle took upon an environmental development program at Hamsa Vanam on the hill slope of Ramadri near Visakhapatnam. The Circle developed a natural garden with greenery, planted sacred trees, and constructed a meditation center amidst the temples to enable anyone with interest to retreat and meditate.
Animal Protection: Go Seva
At Hamsa Vanam and also at Sri Krishna Ashramam (Multi Service Centre), the Circle is protecting and maintaining cows in a healthy way and using their milk for feeding poor school children and for worship in the temples, as the cows are sacred animals according to the ancient Indian values.
The Circle responds to the genuine needs of the poor to restore health from serious sicknesses. The Circle runs free homoeopathic clinics, eye clinics, cardiac rehabilitation centers, and general health rehabilitation clinics at various places across Andhra Pradesh. More than 100,000 patients have benefited from these free services.
The Circle promotes the classical music by encouraging the youth and upcoming artists. It also promotes cultural activities by supporting music schools and academies by maintaining the avenues and organizing regular music programs.
Other Service Activities
The Circle regularly conducts wide ranging service activities. Some of the service activities taken up by the Circle are: rehabilitating houses, trade and craft training to the poor women so they can self-support, giving access to clean water to villages, self-employment training programs to the unemployed, clothing donations, pensions to senior citizens, supporting handicapped persons, supporting blind school children, and running animal shelters, just to name a few.
