  • The Jattu Ashramam in Parvatipuram, 75 km from Vizianagaram, believes in not letting go of a child’s hand till he/she manages to find their footing in life.
  • Inspired by Mr. Parinaidu’s efforts, Ms. Padmaja resigned from her job and joined the ashram in order to fulfil her lifelong passion of working for marginalised children.
  • Having grown up in Raichur, Karnataka, where music and dance play a key role in shaping the growth of children, Ms. Padmaja wanted to ensure the same kind of upbringing for the tribal children of Jattu Ashramam.
