Have you ever thought that a disheveled street dweller, who is mentally & physically challenged and rifles through dustbins at railway platforms could ever live a respectable life?
We have made this possible at the SEON Ashram.
Today, the ashram is home to the mentally ill, aged destitute, widows, orphans, needy children, physically challenged and sexually abused, all cared for and provided with shelter, food, clothing, medical care and other facilities. We rescue them to create incredible stories of change.
Who are we?
It was 16 years ago that UC Paulose, our founder had a life changing experience – he witnessed a sight that would define the purpose & the course of his life. He saw the heart-wrenching scene at a railway station in Kerala …… 2 mentally & physically challenged men were scouring through dustbins, looking for food among the dustbins! It moved him to see lives being lived at the cost of human dignity, in hunger and hapless abandon. Paulose felt that this has to change. He started the SEON Ashram to attempt something transformational.
SEON became the roof under which the homeless would find their chance for a better life. SEON provided them with medical care, counseling, food, clothing & shelter. Today, SEON has over 440 residents, whose lives are being transformed. We are located in Karnataka (Dakshin Kannada) at Gandibagilu in the Western Ghats – 85 km’s east of Mangalore in a 10-acre plot of land. You are welcome to visit us.
