The Association: Ananda-Seva Indienhilfe

Home » The Association: Ananda-Seva Indienhilfe

Our association supports children and young people as well as social projects in India. We want to enable children, young people and women from impoverished or disadvantaged backgrounds to provide a holistic education and vocational training that prepares them for a self-determined life in Indian society.

We also want to promote exchange projects between teachers and students as well as cultural educational events.

A lively exchange between Europe and India is sought.

Before the foundation of the association, numerous yoga enthusiasts and other spiritual seekers got to know and love the ashram and the school in Omkareshwar. From this circle of friends, our support association “Ananda-Seva Indienhilfe e.V.” was founded in the summer of 2014. We support with dedication the already valuable educational work of the school and would like to commit ourselves in the future also to the village community of the island.

You are cordially invited to join us!

In any case, we are pleased that you have found your way to us. Welcome to our website! We would therefore like to introduce you to our non-profit organisation recognised by the Frankfurt Tax Office as a non-profit organisation.
