Vanvasi Seva kendram
Vanavasi Seva Kendram TamilNadu affiliated to Akhil Bharatiya Vanavasi Kalyan Ashram, has been active among our vanavasi brethren in TamilNadu from 1980, looking after their needs primarily in the fields of Education and Health.
Vanavasi Seva Kendram TamilNadu was started in Karumandurai, a place of Tribal need, in Kalrayan Hills in Salem (Dt), in the form of a small students hostel for Tribal students. Now the unique work and service projects have spread over TamilNadu covering 7 lakhs vanavasi people belonging to 35 groups in different Hills.
There are about 12 crore Vanavasi people living in remote forest areas of our country deprived of their basic facilities, of which around 9 lakhs live in Tamilnadu.
