Message from the President

"Work,work, and work .Rest not till the mission is achieved !"

Believing in Sanatan ideal, Pranavananda Ashram and Vidya Mandir School both were established in 1996 (2053 B.S.) in the heart of Kathamandu (Nepal) near the famous Pashupatinath teample and just opposite to Guheshwori temple under the guidance and inspiration of His Holiness Swami Prnavanandaji Maharaj.

The Ashram run school provides free education for 200 children, besides it's free lodging, fooding, uniform and necessary cares for 50 children who stay in ashram. The school is fully compatible with the Government and English school system. The students are known for their remarkable achievements both in academic and moral discipline. In addition, students are also taught music, scriptures, extracurricular activities and spiritual paths in which they participate in daily morning and evening worship. The dignitary citizens of Nepal have come to appreciate our Ashram and have been giving some financial and material donation. This has allowed our school to continue working and expanding more and more with their generous support.
Besides it is also noted that many more children in Nepal are in a great need of such support. With these inspirations and 21 years of successful experience, we have envisioned a great aim to significantly expand our facilities to allow many more children to join with us. We are earnestly appealing to all of you and would like to invite all generous hearts to make contributions to help children in extending kind support in whatever way you can either by financial or material donations. We would be extremely happy when our humble efforts for the good and welfare of the children may be excelled in the days to come.

Hope Over Hurt


God’s first line of care for children is the family, including adoptive families. For our target children, the love of family does not exist. Perhaps their parents have died. Or, they’ve endured abuse or abandonment such that these little Ones lack a viable means of day-to-day care. Kids who’ve suffered catastrophic family failure: these children are the focus of our Ashram. For such children, we focus on Pranavananda Ashram and its staff as the next line of care.


With the wrap-around support of their friends in the Pranavananda Ashram and others, and some help from people like us, families and caregivers within the Ashram can provide family to orphaned and abandoned children. And do so in a way that keeps these children connected within their community fabric. Our help to children often translates into practical things, like help with hostels, water, school, food, the basics of life.

Our approach

Partnering with over 250 children,families and donors every year ,the collaborative approach gives us the special opportunity to meet the emotional and educational needs of the children in our care. Our Education programs provide intensive and comprehensive services to meet the educational needs of children with serious cognitive, emotional, spiritual, learning and/or social problems who are unable to succeed in community school settings. We provide the least restrictive environment in which special education, structured programming, and meaningful relationships with staff are used to help children achieve their optimal level of functioning, meet with academic success, and reduce presenting behavior problems.
