ShivHari Ashram was established in 2002 and has now become a leading Helping Ashram in Dwarka, working towards achieving sustainability in developmental pursuits and protection of rights of people. ShivHari Ashram believes that development can take place with the communities’ own efforts and that only needs to facilitate the process. It believes in the strength and power of the people – the toughest task is only to make the community realize and explore their own strengths. With an innovative approach to development, ShivHari Ashram works towards helping people to help themselves without imposing any development programmes on them. In the process, intends to strengthen and support community structures and local institutions. ShivHari Ashram believes in human initiative, strength and innovativeness, rather than on charity.
