About Us

Agency for the Development of the Oppressed through Relief and Education (ADORE) is a charitable organization (Reg no Q 181/84) with all India jurisdiction and head quarters at Kollam in Kerala. It was formed in the eighties of the last century under the pioneering leadership of Adv. P. A. Cyrus and Br. S.K. Abraham, with the specific purpose of working among the oppressed and depressed communities of India, for their liberation and development. At present ADORE is engaged in the holistic development of poor tribals and dalits of the Rayagada district in Orissa state.

ADORE Hostels

Adore adopts very poor dalit and tribal children coming from the interior villages where educational facilities are not available and educate them by providing them hostel facilities near existing schools. The strategy of starting school hostels for these children is derived from our own experience of working among them. Our aim is the intellectual, moral and physical development of these children so as to mould them as efficient future village leaders. They will be properly motivated to go back to their villages after education to give effective leadership to their communities as catalysts of social change and holistic development.
