The main motto of the ashram was village reconstruction and rural youth empowerment as the founder followed the philosophy of Mahatma who always expounded that India lives in its villages.
At various stages of its journey the ashram had village reconstructive activities based on the needs of that period. We had very intimate connection with the common functioning of the villages like forming grama sabas which was the main pillar in taking up village reconstructive activities, problem resolutions and very good relationship among themselves.
