‘ASHRAYA -A HOME FOR SENIOR CITIZENS’. Ashraya: (meaning) Shelter and a place of protection.
The project was started by the B.S.K.B Association, a 90-year-old institution in Mumbai, India. Popularly known as ‘GOKUL’, it is one of the most prestigious and progressive cultural organizations of Mumbai. Over the years the Association has been successfully carrying out charitable activities.
The construction started in the year 2005 and completed in 2008 at a cost of nearly 1.5 million dollars.
‘Ashraya’ the Senior Citizens Home of B.S.K.B. Association which was built almost 10 years ago has 27 twin-sharing rooms.
Within a year of its inauguration, Ashraya was fully occupied and today it has a huge waiting list, a testimony to its success and popularity.
GOKUL also offers free or subsidized medical aid to those senior citizens in need.
WHY WE NEED TO RAISE FUNDS?
We believe there can be no better charity than providing a safe and secure home/medical aid to senior citizens and helping them live a life of dignity.
