Welcome to Antyodoy Anath Ashram

The journey of Antyodoy Anath Ashram is truly a fascinating one. It started twenty five years

ago back in 1995, a good Samaritan of Paushi village, Sri Balaram Karan, gave shelter to a hapless 

child of the nearby locality. Subsequently his relentless efforts to establish the right to basic needs 

viz food, shelter and education of orphan children and destitutes of the vicinity have culminated

in today’s Antyodoy Anath Ashram, an orphanage per excellence, where about hundred children 

from the downtrodden stratum of the society are being brought up under the watchful eyes of the 

ashram management.

The orphanage, which was set up sometime in 1995 at Paunsi, a remote village in Purba 

Medinipur, was registered in the year 2004 under the West Bengal Societies Registration

Act 1961.

In the pristine rural idyllic backdrop, the cozy nest for such fledglings is run with a holistic 

approach to nurture a child with all fragrances of life like learning of music, dance, drawing and 

yoga etc. Sri Karan and his team have not been leaving any stone unturned during the last two 

decades to provide them a place, they can call home, now being showcased by district authorities.


About a quarter century ago he was destined to be the chief architect to build brick by brick this shrine of humanity namely Antyodoy Anath Ashram at Paunsi, a village in Purba Medinipur district of West Bengal. The institute is 140 km away from Kolkata. With the advent of this luminary there is a paradigm shift in the social matrix in the village of Paunsi as well as its hinterlands. As a current secretary of the Antyodoy Anath Ashram Paunsi he is physically, mentality and emotionally committed to the process of empowerment of the underprivileged community.
