Sri Saradha Devi Ashram Malaysia

Sri R. Govindasamy had a vision to set up a home in the name of Holy Mother Sri Saradha Devi. In the initial stages, boys and girls were kept together at the same home in the Melaka Ashram. He always felt that as time passes a home must be set up for the girls. However, Sri R. Govindasamy did not live to realize his dream. After his untimely death in 1997, the Management Committee decided to relocate the girls in a home which was to be known as Sri Saradha Devi Illam. In 1998, a single storey bungalow was rented at Taman Sri Garing in Rawang (which is about 40km) from Kuala Lumpur. As there were 6 girls in the Ashram, they were all moved to the home in Rawang. From a humble beginning of 6 girls the number grew to 16. They were all orphans or children of single parents. As the number grew and as the demand from the society too was pressing, a bigger bungalow was rented at Taman Hijau Rawang. Today, the home is a home for 35 girls, of different ages. They are all from different parts of the country. They are either orphans, single parents or from broken homes.
