'Mangalam' is a Trust established under Indian Law. Its purpose is to serve the needy sections of the society in field of education, health (preventive as well as curative), care of elderly people, care of people suffering from various kinds of disabilities, environment protection and other similar works. The Trust was registered at Gandhinagar and has mandate to work anywhere in India. Dr.R.N.Prasad who is the managing trustee of MANGALAM (Trust) is a well qualified with Ph.D degree in Peace and Conflict Studies from GUJARAT VIDYAPITH (world famous Gandhian Institute in India), Master of Business Administration in Personnel Management and Master's Degree in Engineering (from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur). After 20 years of experience as Management Consultant and Development Professional, he decided to establish a Trust and work for the humanity for the most of his time. He got the Trust registered on November 03, 2012 with the office of Assistant Charity Commissioner of Charity with registration no. E/1832/Gandhinagar.
The Trust is newly establsihed and has decided to take up its first project in form of OLD AGE HOME of capacity to take care of 100 elderly people in a small village named LAUKAHA (Birth place of Dr.R.N.Prasad) at India- Nepal border in Madhubani District of Bihar. The area surrounding LAUKAHA is undeveloped one and young people are migrating to developed places for employment. Old people face various problems in today's society due to neglect by their dear ones in their old age when they need them most. MANGALAM would provide shelter to the most needy ones apart from providing DAY CARE CENTRES for those who wish to spend their day time at Old Age Home to go back to their homes during night.
The service to these old people when they are in the evening of their lives would be great service to the humanity and MANGALAM wishes to start its journey by opening an OLD AGE HOME where all necessary facilities for boarding, lodging, health, medical care and sprititual growth would be made available.
The Project cost is likely to be about $1 million.
