The journey that started about 25 years back in 1995, through the emotional act of a local inhabitant, Sri Balaram Karan, has culminated to today’s Antyodoy Anath Ashram. An orphanage per excellence, where a good number of destitute children are being brought up under the watchful eyes of the Ashram management.
It is a fascinating story of a great journey, initiated by one single person, Sri Balaram Karan, an inhabitant of the village, who impulsively brought home an unfortunate orphan in a chilly evening, whom he found desperately searching for food from a garbage bin, at an adjacent locality.
The journey, which had started by saving one child, has culminated to today’s Antyodoy Anath Ashram, giving shelter to more than 100 hapless children.
