Press coverage to be uploaded
In 2005, a group of 7 young people joined together as a group and wanted to carry forward the good work for the orphans and needy youth. They resolved to regularly save some money from their own salaries and initially supported 10 poor slum children in Bangalore. Later, in order to reach out to many needy and poor children, they registered the group as Chilume Social Service Society on December 28, 2006. Due to personal reasons, some of the members remained as supporters, while Mr Joseph A.T took up the organization and its functions as full-time director.
