What’s the 15:15:15 campaign about?

This is our 15th year of service to abandoned ‘special’ children – the perfect time to launch a program of this caliber!

On May 14, 2017 (Mother’s Day), our 15 finalists will be honored in a Special Award Ceremony and will receive

  • a Certificate of Excellence in Parenting
  • a cash award of INR 15,000 each
  • a Special Lifetime Pass that entitles them to support services from Sri Arunodayam Charitable Trust

What’s our Special Lifetime Pass?

Our Special Lifetime Pass has been carefully thought out to provide a lifetime of benefits and free services for truly deserving Special Moms.

  • Each year’s 15 finalists will be given access to regular training programs and workshops with materials to help them learn more and advance in their caregiving abilities.
  • We are establishing a network where all finalists can collaborate, learn, share and leverage services and support through the Special Mom Forum or sisterhood, where they will be able to enjoy hope for themselves, their children and their families through group advocacy, awareness, support and relevant programs that address their particular issues.
  • Understanding their anxiety concerning the future of their ‘special’ children on their demise, we offer finalists the option to appoint Sri Arunodayam as the custodian and official guardian of their ‘special’ children. Sri Arunodayam will network with peer organizations and enable a safe haven for these children on their parent’s demise.


We are so proud of you!

Thank you for inspiring us by your courage and endurance and setting a perfect example for all to follow.

We are looking forward to meeting you and your family at the event.
