Shri Bhuvneshwari Mahila Ashram
SBMA is an independent organization that works with the people of Uttarakhand Himalayas. The ashram evolved out of years of community struggle and in the activist tumult of the 1960's and '70s, the people of Garhwal, especially women, gave voice to their frustration against bad governance and superstition. As a platform for their struggle Swamiji founded SBMA in 1977.
