The Bond

The Sri Ram Ashram (Haridwar, Uttarakh, India)

The Sri Ram Ashram is home to 60 plus children and is located in India’s northern state, Uttarakh. Near the banks of the Ganga River and just outside the city of  Haridwar, it sits nestled away on 16 acres of rural farmland. A model that’s truly unique, the children that live, play and love at this Ashram have come to do so as a result of abandonment or neglect by their biological family members or caregivers. When a child arrives at Sri Ram Ashram, he or she is forever welcomed into this large, unconventional family. Children are taken into the home at all ages, and are greeted with open arms by many including their new 60+ siblings. The  Sri Ram Ashram not only provides these children with an education, but also does so for the surrounding community at their on-site Sri Ram School that accommodates 500 children.
