Our History

Kailashwati Varma Ashram was established in 2013 and is a secular, independent non-profit Charitable Trust founded by Dr. N.S. Bhatnagar, in the memory of his late mother Smt. Kailashwati Varma.
The KWV Ashram has initiated many significant programs in the field of education, employment, research and health which benefit the rural areas of Uttarakhand. Uttarakhand is a hilly region and most of its population lives in rural remote areas. The Ashram’s mission is to help improve the economic standards and health in these areas.

Our Key Areas



The KWV Public school provides affordable, high quality education to all, particularly to children of economically weak families. The objective is to help deprived village children to compete with their urban counterparts, be it in education, competitive examinations or employment.


Plant nursery

The Ashram has a nursery where rare and uncommon plants like Rudraksh and Avocado, are grown. These plants which have environmental and health benefits are distributed for planting in remote rustic areas so that the locals can benefit economically from their farming.


Vocational training

The Ashram will be training young men in trades like electricians, plumbers, carpenters, etc. and help them to find suitable employment or start their own small businesses.


Women empowerment

The Ashram will be setting up cooperatives where the womenfolk will be trained in food-preservation and making jams, tofu and peanut-butter etc. The cooperatives will help in selling the products to different companies who can sell them under their own brand-name. This will help to augment the family income.

Our Objective

The Ashram’s objectives are to carry on and/or promote various public philanthropic, charitable and religious activities mainly in the field of healthcare, social and cultural activities and education including religious education in India, particularly in rural areas of Uttarakhand which also include public policy research, conducting seminars and workshops, establishing learning and research centers, providing scholarships to poor/needy and deserving students and not for purposes of profit.
