A residential centre away from the hustles of modern living, incorporating the ATMA Gurukulam (destitute home for boys & girls), ATMA Elders’ Homes (for men & women), Palliative and Geriatric Care Centre, Destitute Women’s Home, Free Counselling & Guidance Centre, Research Centre in Yoga & Music therapy for emotional health, Pre & Post Marital Guidance Centre, Skill Development and Training facilities, Centre for Comprehensive Mental Health, etc.

ATMA harmony village is envisioned as a Model Social Work Unit, utilising professional expertise in social work, psychology, health, management etc. in concept and execution.

ATMA Gurukulam

Destitute home for girls, approved by the Government of Kerala. In adherence to Government regulations, the home needs to be relocated to owned premises with specified facilities. Separate facilities and infrastructure are also needed for a proposed Boys’ Home.

The ATMA Old Age Home

To address the increasing social need to care for the elderly.

Geriatric & palliative care centre

To ensure proper care to the elders in sickness

When the children’s home is linked with the elders’ home, the children will get seasoned mentors to guide their life; and elders, instead of discussing only death & disease, can spend the evening of their lives in the midst of activity – effectively contributing to social work, while their own needs will be satisfactorily met.

Women’s Home

To accommodate senior girls from the Gurukulam, and other destitute women and young mothers. Here such women inmates can also seek gainful employment in the Elders’ home & Geriatric Care Centre and will become a powerful supporting voluntary force.

Youth home

To accommodate children above 18 years from the boys’ home till their education is completed is also to be developed.

Child Guidance Centre

To help children with learning disabilities and academic difficulties with the comprehensive support of psychiatrists, psychologists, educators, remediators, special educators, etc. The possibility of developing it into a special school for such children will also be explored.

Ayurveda & Naturopathy Health Guidance Centre

To assist people to combat stress and lifestyle diseases through healthy living options.

ATMA Marital Guidance Centre

To conduct regular premarital trainings throughout the year, and provide facilities for pre & post marital guidance & counselling.

Harmony Counselling Centre

To be developed further to reach out to more people in need, assisting more families to live in harmony through new initiatives like Family Harmony Cottages.

Adolescent Mental Health Centre

As an extension of our current campaigns among youth, in the background of increasing negativities among them, ATMA aims to establish a Comprehensive Mental Health Centre with focus on adolescents & youth. The institute will evolve an integrated remediation & rehabilitation programme, harnessing the possibilities of psychiatry, psychology, counselling, ayurveda, yoga, games, success skills training etc, addressing physical, emotional, cognitive, moral, social and spiritual aspects of personality, facilitating necessary realignments in attitude, aptitude and ecology. Expert professionals will be involved at all levels of programme formulation & implementation.

Research Centre

To scientifically explore the possibilities of Yoga, Music, Harmony Counselling, etc to assist people to lead happier and healthier lives.

Training Centre

With residential facilities to conduct outbound trainings on Harmonious Living and skill development workshops for different groups.

The ATMA Harmony Village will thus be the nodal centre of all ATMA activities, initiating and leading ATMA campaigns and service projects.
