  • Since


Anandam Trust was established with the purpose of providing financial and physical support to impoverished elderly individuals who are deserving of as Read moresistance. In 2003, Anandam initiated a small-scale endeavour called "Anandam, a Free Home for Senior Citizens," with only three elderly residents. Through dedicated management efforts and the generosity of well-wishers, this project has flourished into a remarkable model home, spanning an expansive 24,000 square feet within a 15-acre campus. It has broadened its scope to encompass various other services such as free educational support for underprivileged and deserving students, high-quality medical care for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds, and free special education for children grappling with learning disabilities. Its compassionate, attentive, and principled approach is evident in all aspects of its services, be it the elderly care facility, educational assistance, or medical support. Anandam fosters a sense of family among its beneficiaries, and its commitment to values is evident in the care, facilities, and camaraderie observed among those associated with the organisation. Additionally, the Trust promotes the talents of the elderly by conducting regular music, yoga, tailoring, and dance classes.
