About the Organization
Kriyasheela Geleyaru is an NGO that works with notorious teens and youngsters with behavioural issues. The team works round-the-clock to transform the lives of rebellious children and juvenile offenders simply by never losing faith in them. Dozens of teenagers with behavioural problems have managed to work their way past the challenges and settle down. Ayurveda, pranayama and Indian martial arts like Kalaripayattu are often used to restore the mental balance of the students. Communing with nature through frequent treks in the forest is another popular method.
About the Founder
Mukund Maigur, who founded the organization in 1992, has provided the perfect platform to thousands of run-away and notorious teens who have behavioral and attitude problems. He provides food, accommodation and shelter to dozens of children, with full support from his own wife and kids. Maigur is also an environmentalist who received the Rajiv Gandhi Environment Award. With the prize money he received, He used the prize money to take his students to the mining district in Bellary, to help them understand the adverse impacts of a dwindling forest cover.
“Dysfunction in the family can cause great damage to the self-esteem of children. The notions of parental love and affection have totally disappeared in this era of globalization, which has led to a number of lead to behavioral disorders among children.
Teachers who fail to spot the signs only worsen the issue. At the organization, our aim is to provide practical education instead of rote learning. We help the students become curious about what they study through theatre, games and painting,” said Maigur.
Mukund has helped many children with behavioral problems to settle down and obtain a good education, which has enabled them to go on to lead successful careers and lives.
A group of engineers who studied under him went on to form their own organisation in Bijapur. They visit schools in the area and provide counseling to the more troublesome students. Teens who wouldn’t have stood a chance in this world now have bright, shining futures, thanks to Mukund Maigur, who believed in them when nobody else did.
