|About us ...|
'Santvana' in Sanskrit means Consolation. In 1995 some of us were called upon to visit and administer care to a woman dying of burn wounds. As we were taking care of that woman, she kept praying for divine consolation repeating the word 'Santvana' over and over again. That experience gave the group to begin a mission of consolation. Santvana is a registered charitable Society founded with the purpose of building a culture of love, for restoring human dignity where it has been deprived and bringing consolation and healing to the needy and suffering people. Santvana community consist of both married couples and singles, some physically challenged persons, people of different walks of life and professions, who live in communion. The members of Santvana are full time volunteers who, prior to joining Santvana were working as teachers, advocates, artists, social workers, business professionals, etc. They have come together to pool in their lives, their talents and resources to build a society of love, harmony and tolerance and thus make the world a better place to live in.
