ANAND NIWAS

Anand Niwas was established on 2nd June 1972.  The sisters were invited by Fr. Haldan SJ. Aim of the centre is to uplift the women and children. The village developmental work is focused in 90 villages.

 

In the year 1972 in Ahmednagar there was drastic famine, there was no rain for continues three years. Government found it difficult to manage the situation. The daily wages of the people were only Rs. 2/- . During such pathetic situation the sisters started their humble service. They went to the village to meet people, stayed overnight conducting different classes for elderly, children and young girls. Teaching women cleanliness, stitching and directing to be the leaders.

There was no school in the distant villages. The need was to educate girls, teach them to read and write and to respond to this need, a girls’ home was founded. Slowly parents took step to admit girls in our home in order to get good education, protection and care.
