Chiguru Children's Village
Chiguru Children Village: It is a residential bridge school for children, both boys and girls, preparing them for regular schooling. Children at Chiguru are housed in small groups in different cottages, known as Group Care Homes, as an alternative form of care. This arrangement is designed to provide more individual attention. Positioned along the banks of the Krishna River, Chiguru provides an optimal environment for children to thrive. Nestled in a serene location amidst nature, the village offers an ideal home setup, allowing children to connect with nature and detach from their past family situations.
Chiguru also provides a short-term residence for girl children above 15 years and young women – victims of sexual, physical and other forms of violence, especially in cases of domestic violence.
