Brothers Integrated Rural Development Society (BIRDS) is the Social organ of Sacred Heart Brothers formed in the year 1997 with a primary motto to serve the marginalized communities in Rural and Urban areas. Sacred Heart Brothers is a registered society under Karnataka Society Registration Act in the year 1978 with a number 3/77- 78. At the initial stage the society was doing a lot of charitable work in the rural Bangalore. Later in the year 1997 we felt the need to have a separate unit for the social work, which can promote for the Community Development of the people as per the need of time. Hence the BIRDS wasfounded by Rev. Bro. A. Victordass SHJ.
BIRDS is dedicated to the empowerment of the tribal, rural community and slum with the inclusive of holistic development of the people without any discrimination on the bases of caste, religion and social status. This project is completely on child and women focused community development works, such as education, health, income generation, civic amenities and empowerment of the community. The BIRDS promotes development and empowerment works on the light of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the united nation. And also the BIRDS executes its works towards holistic development of the people by providing SMART goals (Specific- Measurable-Achievable-Reasonable- Time bound).
