The Mahatma Gandhi Seva Ashram is an institution for peace and non-violence. We believe in an India where people can live in peace and harmony with each other. An India where there are no boundaries between humans. An equal India. A strong India. We believe that through Ahimasak Sangharsh (non-violent struggle) the rural communities of India can secure Gandhi’s vision of Gram Swaraj Srijan, or the creation of a self-reliant society, is possible when community ties are strengthened through mutual respect and social equity.
The vision of the organisation is to secure and enhance the land & livelihood opportunities for the excluded communities, particularly Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, minority communities, single women and physically challenged persons, through democratic accountability, responsiveness and transparency in governance system.
