About Astha

Astha means  FAITH- a hope that Supreme Power will set everything right in life! And it was with this spirit that Astha Vriddhajan Sewa Ashram was started on 1 June 1992.

Spread over 3 acre of land at Pardesipura in Indore, Madhya Pradesh (India), Astha was initially a home only for elderly men & women of the society who had no one to look after them in the twilight of their lives. But very soon we realized that elderly citizens feel happy in the company of children. And so at Astha we also began offering vocational training to destitute women & children during the day.

Hardly a wonder that today, this initiative has transformed into a very big project and is happily spreading joy to countless old as also underprivileged individuals of the society.


At Astha, our one singular mission is to make the neglected senior citizens of the society (both economically backward & well-to-do) feel happy and wanted in life again. And if their happiness lies in seeing destitute children & women become self-sufficient, then Astha is ever willing to work in this direction too.


As of today, our sole vision behind this project is to make Astha a renowned home for countless suffering men, women & children across the whole of India.
