Palghar was a small taluka about 100 km away from Mumbai, with less attention given to the downtrodden, under privileged and Senior Citizens.
There was hardly any awareness for caring and respecting the senior citizens. The grand parents who were discarded from their own house had a dark future, Palghar had no shelter for this aging. These problems motivated Mr. and Mrs. Kotak to come up with a secure, non-profit old age home which was registered as Anand Vruddhashram Seva Trust in 2005. 10,000 sq.ft. of land was donated to the Trust by Mr. Pradeep Kotak and the journey began.
