About Manav Sadhna
Manav Sadhna is an NGO based at Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad. Manav Sadhna is a registered trust in India and a 501(c) 3 non-profit in the USA. The organization is comprised of a young group of dedicated individuals working for the upliftment of poor and needy children.
Inspired by the Gandhian principles of truth, non-violence, uplifting the poor and oppressed, promoting health and sanitation, and to educate the poor masses, Manav Sadhna has begun a movement to adapt these ideals to the current and complex issues facing not only India, but the world. Manav Sadhna wishes to plant the seeds of hope and inspiration among all people, especially those children who have been neglected by society.
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 cultivated into a full time endeavor working to brighten the future of underprivileged children. Under the guidance of Gujarat Harijan Sevak Sangh, Safai Vidyalaya and Environmental Sanitation Institute (ESI), Manav Sadhna was established both in India and in the United States. Today, from a quiet corner in the Gandhi Ashram, Manav Sadhna serves more than 4,500 children and women through over 38 projects. We also indirectly touch the lives of more than 4,000 individuals through our healthcare and educational support projects. The projects are created based on the needs and participation of the community.
