Infosys Foundation Seva Bharathi Campus for Divyang

A unique service by Seva Bharathi

Introduction

Since years, the parents of Divyangs are asking Seva Bharathi ‘What would be the future of our child?’. On the other hand, they want Seva Bharathi to share their worry.

This made Seva Bharathi to plan to have a permanent shelter/stay home with all the facilities, presently extended by Seva Bharathi for Divyang, through it’s various units, under one umbrella.

Co-incidentally, land belonging to late Dr. Madhava Kamath measuring 5.97 acres at Montepadavu in Neringana Village, Bantwal Taluk was donated to Seva Bharathi and the land got registered in the name of Seva Bharathi during March 2020.

Fortunately, God sent savior, Infosys Foundation come forward, to build the unique cum mega project.

The said land has been named ‘Madhava Vana’, as per the wishes of the donor. The family of the donor is pleased to know that proposed project, being materialized with the name of the donor.

Thus, dream project of Seva Bharathi is going to be reality soon.
