During extensive research on the under-privileged areas of Maharashtra, SEDT led to concentrate on the Kerwadi village in Parbhani District. At the time of this experience, we noticed that the community we came across lacked the necessities of life and education.

Our visit to 'Swarnabhumi' estate was a success. The work done by Mr. Suryakant Kulkarni and his team is extremely commendable. They take care and free the children who are either orphans or in conflict with the law. We wish him and the entire time all the very best for their future endeavors. We can positively say that the Nanded Police will be extremely proud to be associated with them to support and protect the children who need the required assistance.

Today we visited the 'Dreamland' children's home. During our visit we observed that the children's home is very self-disciplined which is crucial in every children's home. We also observed that the staff of the home is extremely caring and particular about every child and pays special attention to each one, which is again important for every children's care institution. Throughout this visit another important factor that was taken care of was cleanliness and hygiene and the entire premise was very well-maintained

It is my pleasure and privilege to see this kind of institute which is aiming to work well for orphans. Their science lab is one of their most impressive elements and they provide a good learning and sharing experience overall. I wish the management of the institute all the very best for the future.
