On previous tours, we visited the “Manav Sadhna, an NGO based in the Sabarmati Gandhi Ashram, Ahmedabad, which is dedicated to the upliftment of the underprivileged through love.”

Manav Sadhana

Manav Sadhana In 1990, a team of young volunteers, inspired by Gandhian values, began gathering under the branches of a tree in the Gandhi Ashram every Saturday to play with street children. They provided the children with a nutritional meal and taught them about basic hygiene by cutting their nails and bathing them. This activity quickly came together into a full time endeavor working to brighten the future of underprivileged children. 

Today, from a quiet corner in the Gandhi Ashram, Manav Sadhna serves more than 8000 children and women through more than 35 projects. They also indirectly touch the lives of many more individuals through our healthcare and educational support projects. The projects are created based on the philosophy of love all and serve all. By seeing God in every individual (Manav), mere service is transformed into worship (Sadhna). To this end, Manav Sadhna is engaged in constructive humanitarian projects that cut across barriers of class and religion while addressing issues faced by socio-economically neglected segments of society. In executing this mission, Manav Sadhna is guided by Mahatma Gandhi’s unshakable beliefs in love, peace, truth, non-violence and compassion.
