Safe home for children in Varanasi, India
Greetings from Varanasi, India, home of our Bal Ashram safe home for children. First and foremost, we wish you a New Year filled with meaning, fulfillment and peace.

Every morning, the children say prayers and chant various mantras, one of which is the Shanti Mantra, a prayer for peace. Here, they are around a big peepal tree across the river on the future eco-park land, chanting the Shanti Mantra as an offering for world peace.
Bal Ashram is SonoMa Ashram’s primary service project in the holy city of Varanasi, India. Children without parents find a loving home, quality education and nurturing for all aspects of their life.
