About Ankitgram

“Ankitgram” Sewadham Ashram, a nationally and internationally known inter-faith non-partisan voluntary organization, is a lifetime shelter and rehabilitation center with due love, care and compassion for the homeless, helpless, differently able, mentally ill, dying and destitute people coming from across the nation without any discrimination of caste, creed, region, age and gender. Married, unmarried mothers, including mentally ill pregnant women also find safe shelter and care here.  Most of the residents here are those who are suffering from chronic or terminal illnesses.

It is a non-partisan, voluntary organization running exclusively on public support. Ever since 1989, Ankitgram has been a home for people who were abandoned by their families or their individual societies at large.


Established by Shri Sudhir Bhai Goyal “Bhai Ji” on January 26th, 1989, “Ankitgram” Sewadham Ashram is the main unit of Ujjaini Senior Citizen’s Forum (USCF). “Ankitgram” Sewadham Ashram was founded on the principle of “Manav Sewa – Madhav Sewa” i.e. Service to Humanity is Service to God. Sewadham’s Logo highlights the Concept of – Sewa (service), Shiksha (education), Swasthya (health), Swawlamban (self-dependence), Sadbhav (communal harmony) with environment protection.

Sudhir Bhai Goyal, Founder – Director and sole architect of Ashram, is a humanitarian visionary, who could have enjoyed the comforts and luxuries provided by his ample inheritance as a businessman, however chose a life dedicated to serving the needy since the age of 13. The journey started with just around 5.6 acres of land that he donated to the ashram and a resolve to do something for the underprivileged and the suffering.

“Manav Sewa is true Madhav Sewa” i.e. Service to Humanity is Service to God.

– Sudhir Bhai Goyal “Bhai Ji”
