Enchanting Kerala

Social Tourism at Saigramam

The largest NGO in Kerala, Sri Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust headquartered at Saigramam in Thiruvananthapuram district,  is all set to present its latest initiative ‘Social Tourism’ to create unblemished harmony by keeping cultures, customs and societies bonded together. The Trust organises a multitude of philanthropic services, emphasising the society’s cultural, moral and spiritual values. With piety put in practice, over 111 charitable projects have already been rolled out of the Trust’s 22 years of existence.

The Social Tourism project seeks to infuse a sense of social responsibility into recreational activities. Simultaneously, each visitor gets a chance to experience the silent flow of life in the pretty little hamlets of Kerala. 

Currently, six packages are available as part of this innovative initiative by Saigramam.

Gandhi’s Grama Swaraj
