Setting up of organizations for orphans:
Taking care of orphans necessitates arrangement for food and shelter besides providing educational and medical facilities. That prompted Jivanananda Mahathero to set up an orphanage in Betagi in 1977 styled as Orphans’ Home Complex. There was a time when average number of inmates in the orphanage was about 150. An estimated amount of Tk. 60000 (sixty thousand) was then needed per month to meet the expenses of their fooding, education, medicare and technical training. Number of inmates has now come down to one third because of paucity of fund. In fact, at present we have no fixed source of income to meet the growing expenses because of price-hike of especially food items. We are frantically trying to overcome the deadlock so that normality can be restored.
Tribal Girls’ Orphans’ Home:
Home For Aborigines:
The organization was set up in Sitakund in 1998 to shelter and provide educational facilities to boys and girls coming from families of aboriginal origin living in the hills and hummocks of local areas. It was planned to commission two separate dormitories for such boys and girls and provide them with all-possible educational facilities; arrange job-opportunities as far as practicable. But paucity of fund later made it difficult to materialize the dream. It has been estimated that Tk. 60(Sixty Lac) will be required to construct two dormitories and arrange other essential facilities. Cost of ten decimal of land near Sitakund proper will be Tk. 30 lac while Tk. 30 lac will be needed to construct two small dormitories.
