The first Apna Ghar Ashram was established by a physician couple Dr. Brij Mohan & Madhuri Bhardwaj in Bharatpur, Rajasthan on 29th June, 2000. Now there are 35 Apna Ghar Ashrams in 8 States in India. Their process can be summarized in 3 R’s… Rescue, Rehabilitate and Reintegrate.


Gleanings from interviews with Apna Ghar Founders, Dr. Brij Mohan & Madhuri Bhardwaj

We want our country to have no hungry person left alone.

We don’t bring them here just to fill their stomach’s, they were getting food on the railway stations, temples and streets anyway.

We bring them here to tell them why worry we are here for you.

This work is worship of God and not Social Service. This is our worship, meditation and prayer

One sees extremes at our Ashrams, the toughest of human suffering in terms of disease and depravity AND the brightest, most loving and lasting happiness here..

Remarks of a visitor to Apna Ghar Ashram: “Visiting an Apna Ghar Ashram one experiences joy and sorrow, life and death, union and separation all wrapped up.
