Founded in 1994, by four young social activists, Jeeva Jothi strives hard to bring some ethical changes in the lives of kids, who roam on streets with no purpose, and some, who turns workers. It all started in the village, Kosappur, as it was the place where a group of youngsters took initiative to educate the kids, free of cost. They, in fact, joined Jeeva Jyothi as volunteers.    

As years passed, Jeeva Jyothi’s volunteers were quite disturbed by the existence of child labor in the society. Kids were prone to hazardous jobs, like rag picking, chemical companies, lathe, cemeteries & more. The focus of Jeeva Jyothi was only to throw light on kids who were involved in rag picking, which was its prevalent in Pammadu Kulam. It all started there.

Jeeva Jyothi’s programmes and activities were extended at a large level, to support kids, educate them, give medical assistance, create awareness on child labor, camps, theatre programmes and folk arts training etc. Read More
