Sneh Savali is an old age home that also takes responsibility for the bedridden.
All the resident’s needs including and not limited to medicine, residence, food etc.
are taken care of here. Snehsavali includes 4 buildings that follow a simple and
pleasing pattern of comfortable individual rooms (some for men and some for women)
and a garden in the middle of the building for the residents to enjoy. Baba Amte
and Sadhana Tai came here everyday to meet and talk to the residents. To this day,
Dr.Vikas Amte and his family, 3 generations after Baba meet the patients regularly.
A commune specially built for women, to give them a comfortable home and privacy. Apulki was established after sneh-savali started getting overcrowded. It was built using the money raised by the ‘Swaranandwan’ orchestra. The residents here are provided with electricity, housing, food water etc.
Home to about 50 people, Uttarayan is a commune mostly consisting of senior citizens. The residents here are provided with electricity, clothing, accomodation etc free of cost. The commune is fondly reffered to as a ‘Wisdom Bank’ by Dr. Vikas Amte.
Krishi Niketan was established to give the married farmer couples a home. This commune was established as a part of the mukti sadan expansion plan. The concept of this commune was to give people residence near their place of work. The people here are provided housing, electricity, healthcare etc.
This was the first commune established in Anandwan. The communes here were designed for the rehabilitated leprosy-afflicted and disabled people. Baba had arranged for two young couples and one older couple to stay in one home thus forming a traditional Indian joint-family. This way, family relations could be preserved and understood by those who were otherwise disowned by their blood relatives outside Anandwan. The joint-family structure ensures that the older couple can be taken care of by their “children”.
Literally means- House of freedom. The concept of this commune was to give people independence and residence near their workplace. The residents of this commune were usually involved in agriculture. The people are provided electricity, housing etc. The modules in the commune were built in the famous ‘nubian vault structure’ pattern and provide earthquake protection as well as some protection against the heat and cold.
MSS, Warora encourages all kinds of inter-disability marriages. Those couples were generally housed at Mitrangan. More than 64 houses have been constructed here. The houses are nubian vault houses. Mitrangan literally means the ‘patio of friends’.
MSS, Warora believes in being there for those who have no- one. Gokul was established so orphaned children will have a home to call their own. Baba and Tai believed that everyone deserves a loving family and a sense of belonging and community. Not only are the children’s dietary requirements fulfilled, their educational and emotional needs are also looked after. When the children grow up, MSS, Warora also takes responsibility of rehabilitating these children into society and ensuring their well-being.
MSS, Warora has always worked towards the betterment of society. An effort to encourage the unemployed youth in the area to get training here and take their skills and knowledge to their own village became very successful. It became necessary to provide these youth with a place to stay and grow.
The girls and boys who are given vocational training at Sandhi Niketan are housed in separate hostels on the grounds. Care is taken that the quarters are as comfortable as possible as the students here are deaf and mute or differently abled.
