The Santhigiri Ashram, Saket Branch in the national capital is located at Pushp Vihar in Saket in south Delhi. The foundation stone of this ashram branch was laid on 2nd March, 2002, by the then Lt. Governor Vijay Kapur, in the presence of Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.
The consecration of the Ashram Branch was performed on 3rd April, 2005. Sishyapoojitha Amritha Jnana Thapaswini visited this Ashram during the Teerthayathra to North India in 2009.
This ashram branch undertakes national level coordination of the spiritual and cultural activities of Santhigiri Ashram.
With the pandemic obstructing supply chains and livelihoods, an estimated 132 million more people could go hungry by the end of this year than previously estimated. Out of this 25 million are children. Karuna Kit is an initiative started by Santhigiri Ashram to extend support and kindness to the underprivileged sections of the society. A Karuna kit is not just a ration kit but a thoughtful composition of hygiene essentials like face mask, sanitary pads, hand sanitizers etc which are few of the basic necessities.
Last year as well with the help of Coal India Limited and IGL, Santhgiri was able to feed more than one lakh people who were mostly migrant workers in various regions of Delhi NCR. This year as well understanding the current situation and the necessity of the poor families, Santhigiri came up with Karuna Kit which is a combination of the basic foundation of Santhigiri Ashram - Annadaanam (Free food) and Athurasevanam (Medical support).
Our small effort to help street children has been well received till now. We request everyone of you watching this video to kindly share it as much as possible and help Santhigiri Foundation reach more of these little ones so that none of them have to sleep at night with a hungry stomach.
A Karuna kit is not just a ration kit but a thoughtful composition of hygiene essentials like face mask, hand sanitizers etc along with the necessary medical assistance in the form of doctor consultation and free medicines required by them.
We are using ration as a means to educate and make these poor families aware about the threats of Covid 19 and the upcoming third wave.
India, the nation of World’s largest youth population is striving hard to ensure 100 percent employment to it’s youth.
Focussed towards this goal, Santhigiri along with support from Government of India through it’s prestigious schemes for skilling the unemployed rural youths like DDUGKY (Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalaya Yojana) and PMKVY (Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana) have supported more than 500 students who are today leading a far better and meaningful life.
We feel proud contributing and educating them with a strong vision toward the family and the nation.
This initiative started in the year 2015 is supported by renowned PSUs like IGL, IRCON, Coal India, NRL, RITES, CONCOR, NTPC, ONGC under their CSR.
Understanding the current demand of the industry every year, we initiated skill development programmes in Ayurveda Therapy to uncover the talented students living in the outskirts unaware about the scope of earning a better standard of life.
Hospitality, the core value of India, is something which we always treasure and our youth understanding and adapting the same culture are learning and respecting the Ayurveda like never before.
