Siddamma worked in a physiotherapy clinic where she helped in caring for children undergoing treatment. She also worked with supporting children going through physical exercise and gym routines for therapeutic purposes. Working with children is very close to her heart and she thrives on caring for them. She has 2 children – a daughter (31) and a son (29). Her two grandchildren are teenagers.
Renuka is an integral part of our Kitchen Team on campus. She hails from Raichur and is a mother of two- Madhu and Rakesh. She loves to cook, and the entire team is a big fan of her South Indian-style dishes. She has been supporting the kitchen on campus since its inception, and her warm presence is always felt around the campus.
Kalamma heads our Kitchen Team and is as much of an efficient manager as she is a wonderful cook. She is a mother of two, and a grandmother of two. She has had a long experience of working with children and is fluent in Kannada, English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. While managing the kitchen, she also works with the children directly, and her warm presence is a treat in the sessions.
Manjamma loves listening to Kannada music during her free time and spends the rest of it interacting with the children, whom she cherishes being around. Having been with us for a few months now, she is extremely happy to be here and help out where necessary.
Born and brought up in Yelahanka, Sarojamma began her career as a housekeeping staff at the airtel offices, working there for five years.
