Karuna Trust, established in 1986 is affiliated to Vivekananda Girijana Kalyana Kendra (VGKK) located at Biligiri Rangana Hills (B R Hills) in Chamarajanagar district of Karnataka that works for tribal empowerment.
The Trust was established to respond to the widespread prevalence of leprosy in Yelandur Taluk of Karnataka and has been singularly successful in addressing this problem. Drop in the prevalence of leprosy from 21.4 per 1000 population to 0.28 per 1000 spanning across 26 years is a testimony for the success of the intervention.
I am really proud to be associated with Aarogya Seva as a volunteer. Participating in volunteering activities to serve the citizens in improving their health gives immense satisfaction to me.

I was quite impressed by what they were doing in the area of Health and Education for the underprivileged.
This moment made me realize that this is the best way to channelize my little contribution to the needy.

I was privileged to be a part of digital enablement for Govt. school kids’ tie-up with BYJU’s and overwhelmed by the facilities extended to rural kids. They have also helped many needy patients, who cannot pay their medical bills.
I wish that you grow and rise, and thankful to Mr. Kote for his vision in social responsibility.
