Origin and History of Navajeevan

  • The services towards rehabilitation of street children in Vijayawada were initiated by the Salesians of Don Bosco when the Corporation of Vijayawada along with UNICEF approached Fr Johnson Moyalan, the then Director of Don Bosco, Pezzonipet, to begin a collaborative venture, in the beginning of 1988. The then Mayor of Vijayawada, Shri (Dr) Jandhyala Shankar extended all support including a piece of land, measuring about an acre at Poornandapet on the Eluru Canal Bund, close to the Railway Station, Vijayawada, and some financial help. Fr Johnson immediately accepted the work, and requested Fr Joseph Thekkedath, the then Provincial of Bangalore, to send a suitable person to begin the work. Accordingly, the Provincial sent Fr Joseph Roy Nallanadath, who was deeply involved in a similar work in Palluruthy, Cochin, and had initiated similar work in Bangalore earlier, in May 1988 to take up this project. Fr. Roy started moving to the railway stations and bus stations to meet the boys, while initiating talks and correspondence with the Corporation authorities. In fact, by October 1988 he was able to give care and support to over 240 boys and girls. The proposed land for the Shelter Home was made available to Don Bosco, after quite a struggle, by the beginning of 1989 and the construction started. The Shelter Home was named ‘Jawahar Sneha Bhavan’, and it was inaugurated by Shri Rajeev Sharma I.A.S. the District Collector, on 24th February 1990 at 8. 30 Am., in the presence of Dr. Jandhyala Shankar, the Mayor and M.G.V.K. Banu, IAS, the Commissioner.
  • Fr. Roy put in a lot of hard work to create rehabilitative atmosphere and practices at the Shelter Home. However, serious differences marred the relationship between the management of the Shelter Home and the Corporation authorities. Fr. Roy could not carry out all the activities that the Corporation wanted, 2 Save the child by leading him/her to Navajeevan. Sponsor the child to realize his/her dream. Due to the paucity of funds. Lack of proper objective, planning and the needed team members added fuel to the fire. It was more or less a one-man’s struggle. Given all these facts and the then ‘political’ slant of some of the local leaders involved, the whole enterprise came to a halt in January 1992. However, the Salesian Community, though in a low key, continued the work for the cause of street children.
  • It was only through the patient and painstaking efforts of Fr. Thomas Koshy, who had already become the Rector of Don Bosco, Pezzonipet, by 1990 that the institution was back on rail in 1993. At this point the work for the street children was re-launched as Navajeevan Bala Bhavan. Slowly he and his team rebuild a better rapport with the Corporation and the concerned local leaders and officials. Meanwhile, a definite work plan was developed preceded by the drafting of a clear-cut objective of reaching out to children of the street and to motivate them away from their ‘street addiction’ and to help them to be self-reliant and responsible citizens. Also, it was decided to register an organization independently of ‘Our Lady of Assumption’ parish at Pezzonipet, the parent organization.



Achievements – Recognitions

  • National Appreciation - Navajeevan activities in giving back each child his/her childhood were well recognized, and in appreciation to this, the Indian Government graced the organization with the “National Award for Child Welfare” in 1996 – apart from numerous other district level awards.
  • In 1999 and 2008, Navajeevan received the Certificate of Merit from the District Collector for rendering special services to children under difficult situations.
  • Since 2005, the Labour Department awarded the Certificate of Merit for participating and rescuing maximum number of Domestic Child Workers, especially during the special drive from December 2005 December to January 2006.
  • On 12th June 2006, Navajeevan received a special award from NCLP and SSA for its services contributing towards making Vijayawada a child labour free city.
  • Fr Thomas Koshy, the Executive Director of Navajeevan, received the ‘Appreciation Award’ on August 15, 2011 from the Municipal Commissioner, in recognition of his service to children under difficult situations.

Silver Jubilee Celebrations of Navajeevan Bala Bhavan Vijayawada

Declaration of the Silver Jubilee Celebrations:

25 years is a small pause to celebrate the history of an organization that is ‘built to last’. If we have achieved something, it is but a very small beginning. The world is an open field and we have many crops to sow. A bountiful harvest awaits all our stakeholders.

The Silver Jubilee Year was officially declared open by Rev. Fr. Raminedi Bala Raju, the Provincial of Hyderabad along with Rev. Fr. Thomas Koshy, Founder & Outgoing Rector cum Executive Director and Rev. Fr. Salibindla Balashowry, the incoming Rector cum Executive Director and Rev. Fr. Pradeep, the new Director on 23rd June, 2013.

The Provincial appreciated Fr. Thomas Koshy, the founding director and all the lay collaborators for their commitment and tireless hard work at the service of young at risk that they had enjoyed new life during these 25 years of its founding and continue to do so. He invited lay collaborators and emphasized the need of collective efforts for improving the living conditions of the children.

Our Silver Jubilee celebrations are not just about how far we have come, but also about how much shared value we have created for our stakeholders:

Thanks Giving Mass offered by Most Rev. Msgr. Govindu Joji, Apostolic Administrator of Vijayawada Diocese and Most Rev. Msgr. Polimera Jaya Rao, Bishop of Eluru at Chiguru-Children’s Village. It is particularly fitting that priests and religious along with the lay collaborators and children gathered on 24th January 2014 to thank the Almighty God for His unconditional providence and continuous support during the 25 years of its journey at the service of young at risk. His lordship Most Rev. Msgr Govindu Joji and several priests celebrated the holy mass. And his lordship Most Rev. Msgr. Polimera Jaya Rao shared the message. He appreciated Fr. Thomas Koshy and all his collaborators for their dedicated mission and congratulated Fr. Balashowry and team for such noble work. He shared about the value and need for working with the children at risk and thereby shares God’s love. He appreciated all the children for their performance both in academics as well as non-extracurricular activities and wishes all success in their endeavors. Marking this occasion, a statue of St. Don Bosco was also installed in the premises of Chiguru-Children’s village.

There are very few days in the Roman calendar which take precedence over the ordinary cycle of Sunday readings and prayers, but this Feast does take precedence, and it is a happy coincidence for us.

The readings of today’s Mass offer a beautiful insight into the paternal, and as the late Pope John Paul I famously observed, the maternal love of God for each of his creatures, fashioned in his own image and likeness …
