IGNORED by society, the children become child labourers or anti-social activists. To prevent this problem KISES took on the social responsibility and a Child Sponsorship Programme was initiated in Khammam and Krishna District.
A total of 55 children were selected and enrolled in the schools of various places of two districts. The children are at different stages like 1st class to 10th class. All the children are very active.
In Krishna District the selection was on the basis of tsunami affected children and also orphans of tsunami affected. All the children are well and continuing their education. It was also conducted the birth day celebrations of the children. Total 150 children were being distributed the school uniforms for poor children.

After massive disaster of Tsunami the need of the service was identified and immediately rushed to the tsunami-affected villages of Krishna District. The area of selection of the villages included the island villages of Nagayalanka Mandal and adjacent to sea of the Machilipatnam Mandal.
Though several problems faced in implementing the programme KISES never take back its decision to work at those villages. By constant efforts for mobilizing the resources finally commenced the rehabilitation programme.
Location: These island villages were located in Nagayalanka mandal and far away to 20 K.M from Nagayalanka which is very adjacent to the Krishna River. The transportation is very difficult as the only way through sea and that to be the only one ferry transporting the villagers from this way to other way.
Demographical Area: In the island total 2 panchyats consisting of 10 villages and having 2000 families and around nearly 8000 population.
Occupation: The only way for livelihood is fishing and that to be in the seasonal and cyclone warning and other unfavourable situations of the atmosphere they could not for fishing.
Educational Services: Just primary school for the villagers and there is no high school in the entire island villages and for the high school education all the students have to move to Nagayalanka or some other places coming to main land area.
ICDS: Anganwadi Centre.
Primary Health Centre: As per the above only limited resource and very far to the normal society and living in a miserable conditions and not having the hygiene and health awareness and no NGO is willing to work in those areas in concurrent programmes except in emergency or temporarily based programmes.
In this precarious situation, KISES came forward with strong commitment to work there and in health and sanitation interventions for three years by constructing toilets for the families, distributing live stock for their livelihood, conducting health camps for regular health check-ups.
KISES carried out house repairs to the families who lost their houses during the Tsunami and also providing relief and rehabilitation programmes during the unprecedented natural calamities.
