A Community of Hope

BTC (Bombay Teen Challenge) Ashagram, is a community of Hope.

We exist to restore hope and dignity to the victims of sex trafficking and substance abuse by rehabilitating and empowering them through residential programs and sustainable opportunities in education and vocational training.

At Ashagram, we fight to restore Hope, Peace and Love in lives that have been devastated, often by the cruelties of others.

Our Programs

A Community of Hope

Peace | Love | Hope

Majority of our residents come from the brothels of Kamathipura, a place that is bereft of these feelings. The open spaces of our campuses were purposely created to help our residents know that they are truly free, and let them experience on the outside, what we want them to ultimately feel inside. The freedom to love, to hope, and to live again.

Peace, love and hope are at the core of all our efforts at BTC Ashagram.
