About

Mr. V Mani, a retired Assistant General Manager of Reserve Bank of India, who hails from an ordinary lower mid-income background, grew up with good morals and values building a strong foundation in life. While commuting to work every day, he used to pass by the Bangalore Central Jail where he observed children crying outside the gates. With the breadwinner of the family in prison, these children had absolutely no support from society. Before retirement, he decided to contribute towards making life better for these children. With the help and encouragement of his supportive wife, Mrs. Saroji Mani, Socare was born in June 1999. They decided to give his retirement money and all their life earnings, including their own residence, to this valuable cause. His dream has now become reality and everyone has the opportunity to be a part of this noble cause. Sri Sri Mahaswamiji of Sringeri Sharada Peetam commended the work of Socare Ind and adopted it as a unit of Sri Sharada Peetam in the year 2007, with a commitment to support the cause of Socare Ind. SOCARE IND (Society’s Care for Indigent) runs free homes for indigent children. A majority of these children are those whose parents are serving long prison sentences in various Jails of Karnataka. Socare Ind provides free comprehensive care for these children including food, health, education, at three separate facilities in Bangalore and Gulbarga. Children are selected purely on secular lines, cutting across the barriers of caste, creed and religion. Children are referred by Jail Authorities and State Child Welfare Department.
