Due to the dry conditions and difficulties of agriculture in the area, many people migrate for work to the cities, to construction sites, road works and other daily wage work. Their children are left behind or are taken along and live a very uncertain life on construction sites or in slums. Several such parents approached Puvidham to ask whether their children could board, while they went in search of work. With this in mind, a hostel facility is provided which caters to such children, and thus provides a more stable environment for them while they also attend SCHOOL at Puvidham. The SurabhiNiwas Hostel was started informally in 2003 and became a full-fledged hostel in 2005.
