Vanaprastha was founded in 1999 as a non-governmental organization.
Since then Vanaprastha has dedicated itself to the poor with the commitment to make own contribution to the creation of a better future especially for children, young people, women and the elderly of Indian villages.
Our MISSION concretizes our PRINCIPLES. We are present in southern India, in a region that is described in the TERRITORY section where the Children’s House, Schools, Hostel and Hospital were built.
Both the Name “Vanaprastha” and the Logo have a profound meaning for us and are illustrated in the corresponding section.
In Vanaprastha we follow the spiritual tradition of Shantimarga and we say goodbye saying “Shanti Om”.
