Siva’s journey from education to employment is a poignant one. A student of the Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralayam, Bobbili, Andhra Pradesh, Siva lost both his parents when he was a child. He was admitted to the Bobbili Chatralayam in 2007 by a relative and since then, there has been no looking back for him.
Siva shares his Chatralayam journey and its impact on him with us.
“Greetings to everyone. I would first like to thank everyone for giving me this opportunity to share a few things about my hostel, AIM for Seva and me. My name is Siva M and I come from a small village in Andhra Pradesh.
Both my parents expired during my childhood. My relatives did not encourage me to study. But one of my uncles admitted me to the Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Boys, Bobbili, Andhra Pradesh in 2007 when I was in Class 3. I am currently pursuing my engineering in computers. Till now, I have got good marks in all my studies. Thanks to AIM for Seva, I got support to complete my graduation. All the donors and other eminent personalities used to regularly visit the Chatralayam. They used to motivate us to do well in their speeches. They also encouraged us to study hard.
While living and studying at the Bobbili Chatralayam, I have learnt many things like ethics, moral values, exercise and yoga. AIM for Seva provides all the necessities and facilities that is required by a student to pursue uninterrupted education.
As I come to the end, my testimonial would be incomplete if I don’t place on record my gratitude to the guardians and wardens at the Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Boys, Bobbili—Suresh sir and Subba Rao sir. They became my parents.
My ambition from here on is to get a good job and take care of children who have faced financial difficulties since childhood and who are orphans. Thank you, thank you very much.”
