Welcome to Kamakhya Balak Ashram, an Orphanage

"The difference between what we are doing and what we are capable of doing would solve most of the world’s problem.” - Mahatma Gandhi 
There are millions of children in the world who are hungry right now and need food. Do you know that at every five seconds a child dies
because he or she was hungry?"

Who is an Orphan

“Whether the child is having parents or not, if the child does not receive a helping hand at the tender age either from parents or from the society and is deprived of right environment, education, food, thoughts, actions at the right age, that child is an orphan”

Who We Are

About Us

This Ashram was established by one Mr. Madhab Bhattacharjee who is the current secretary and the over all in charge for day to day running of the institution. He was a local businessman, he is also a very religious man. In 1989 he decided to sell off all his businesses to develop this unique institution and to devote his life to the service of the poor helpless orphans. I am yet to meet a man with greater commitment and total dedication to his beliefs and his mission. He runs this institution with strict discipline blended with great love and care. All the children and the staff adore him and look up to him as a father figure.
