Mission for Anath Development & Welfare Society was founded and established in2001-2002 by Rev. R Stephen Diyali in collaboration with other like- minded group of people who were committed to alleviate the pain, suffering and rejection of women, children and people from the lower castes, many of whom are left homeless and deprived of food and care. The word “Anath” (means orphan those who have no parents) has been added to the name of the Society. Migrants from higher altitudes of Uttarkashi Himalayas, pockets of other northern states were employed with Border Road Organization, Tehri Dam project and other Government Units of Uttarkashi. The parents used to leave their children near the roads, fields or alone in homes, hospitals, temples and other public places.
The plight of these children deeply disturbed the soul and mind of the founder, Rev. R Stephen Diyali. So much so that it led him to commit his life for the service of those underprivileged children and communities. Since then the organization has been serving and providing various type of help, support and opportunities for their betterment in life with charitable formal & non-formal education, medical and first aid facilities, employment in the school and organizational activities.
