Generosity and affection of the people is instrumental in all the accomplishments of Sri Sharadadevi Andhara Vikasa Kendra, Shimoga. It was established under the inspiration of Ramakrishna Ashram's Principles in 1986.

Now a team of 9 member trustees is pulling the cart of the Kendra. Making a humble beginning, the Kendra started with one child and turned into a school consisting of 120 blind students. Education is given from Pre-nursery to S.S.L.C. in English Medium. The students are selected from the poorest of the poor families. They are given food, clothing, lodging, education and medical assistance at free of cost.

National festivals like Independence day, republic day, Gandhi Jayanthi, teachers day and children day are celebrated in the Kendra by inviting some guests and enlightening the children about the importance of the day. Some religious festivals like Dashara, Divali, Ganesha Chaturthi, Id Milad and Christmas are also celebrated with religious fervor and gaiety.
