About Us

Ashraya was founded in the year 2008 by Dr. A. V. Baliga Charitable Trust, Mumbai. The trust has been at the forefront of many similar socially relevant initiatives in Mumbai and the coastal region of Karnataka for a long time now. The trust and organisations managed by the trust embody the social values of Late Dr. A. V. Baliga in all their activities.

Ashraya, hence, is not an independent organisation. It's successful management is as much a result of an efficient staff as of supporting sister organisations. Dr. A. V. Baliga Memorial Hospital, Udupi and Kamal A. Baliga Rural Medical Center, Haradi, cater to the much needed medical and healthcare requirements for residents at Ashraya. A large group of dedicated people and organisations, in various capacities, work everyday in making Ashraya the place that it is.
