About Us
Asha Deep Foundation is a Non Profit Organization carrying out development activities since last 32 years in five States of India (Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh). Since its inception the emphasis was given on the holistic development of the community people with a special focus on EDUCATION, HEALTH, SKILL TRAINING AND PLACEMENTS. This is the strong belief of the foundation that all section of the society be covered to experience a visible change. India is succeeding well in the field of economic development and giving tough challenge to develop and developing countries to acquire top position in the world arena in next 12 years.

The available potential for economical growth has made a positive development with support of intellectual progress. The nation’s wealth reserve has also grown to a moderate volume. But It’s benefits are only visible in the living standard of upper and upper middle class society, unfortunately the lower section of society such as Dalits, Schedule Caste, Schedule Tribes and Backward class remains in the same isolation as ever. The reason for their wretched condition is uneven distribution of wealth among all the section as well as ignorance of social development of these community. Though on record many beneficial schemes are introduced by the government, but that is accessible to only a few people. Century old practice of being suppressed is still haunting in the minds of these communities resulting in obstacle in empowerment, unemployment and under development. The Universal Development can only be achieved by empowering these vulnerable communities socially, Economically and politically, which consists nearly half of the population of the Nation and nearly 1/12 of entire global population. Their empowerment can be made possible by bringing them to platform where all the citizens enjoy equal advantage of development.

The purpose of the Asha Deep Foundation (ADF) is to work among people who live in urban and rural area so that they may be empowered and enriched to shape their own destiny. The mission of the ADF is that underprivileged people remain the nuclear of all development activities.Asha Deep Foundation is executing the development activities in the urban slums, resettlement colonies and rural to reach out maximum number of community people who are socially, economically, politically and culturally disadvantaged.

Our Founder : Father A. R. Rajamoney
Father Rajamoney was born on 25th June 1936 at Dohnavar, Tirunelveli Dist, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. The son of Late Dr. Pakia Nathan Daniel Rajamoney and Late Mrs. Sellammal Rajamoney was the eighth child of his parents. He has seven brothers and four sisters. He studied at St. John’s High School-Malaysia and did his B.Ed. from Meston Training College Royapetttah, Chennai. After this, he went for higher study in Theology by doing Bachelor of Divinity (BD) from Bishop’s College, Kolkata. He came to Delhi in the year 1967 and joined the Brotherhood of Ascended Christ-Delhi Brotherhood Society. He also started to serve as Presbyter for the Tamil Congregation at Cathedral Church of Redemption. Continuing with his service , in 1973 he started the social development work with a vision to create an environment in the community and society at large where every human being can live with peace, justice, unity and self-sufficiency without any discrimination. At that time people who were suffering from leprosy were begging at places of worship. They were staying at government allotted areas in Tahirpur, Seemapuri and Nangdnagari, Delhi. In these areas there were no basic facilities to lead a normal life. At this time Father stayed with the leprosy patients and started working among them and made them self-reliant through various income generation activities. He also started working in harmony with the government for meeting the basic necessities such as electricity, water, proper roads and rehabilitation schemes to be available in the leprosy inhabited communities. He initiated a Community Based Organization known as “Anandgram Kustrogi Kalyan Samiti” at Anandgram, Tahirpur, Delhi. The children of leprosy patients were not given admission in schools due to societal assumptions. For these children Father established a school in Old Seemapuri where children can learn without any discrimination and can be part of the mainstream society. He also established two more schools for Dalit, neglected and minority children. Even today around 2500 children are regularly attending the schools and getting quality education. Father’s work did not end here. Father initiated and designed a programme for holistic development of street and working children in Delhi. Through this program approximately 2000 vulnerable children have been mainstreamed in the society. In 1982 he started giving attention in Shahid Nagar, Ghaziabad, U.P. The community was very underdeveloped. He made a jhuggi and started living there. He established two beautiful homes for orphan and destitute children and through these homes many children are getting benefit and building their bright future. This effort will continue. He set off a well-equipped Vocational and Technical Training Centre for community youth who are not able to go for higher education or training due to some reason or the other and even today lot of boys and girls are availing good training and making their life successful. Father was still not satisfied with his work. His ideology was looking for areas in the society where people are still neglected. He came to now of some villages in Ghaziabad which was a totally patriarchal society. Women were neglected in these villages. He was very concerned for the development of rural (village) women, children and farmers; keeping these things in his mind he purchased a piece of land in Loni block of Ghaziabad District (U.P). In 2000 he established an Integrated Rural Development Centre in Farukh Nagar, Ghaziabad, U.P. catering social services to five villages. Most of the village people are availing benefits from this program. Because of these programme the effects of patriarchal society has been reduced, women became more independent and gain the decision making power and are moving towards reaching equal status with men. In the year 2005 he established the organization Asha Deep Foundation (ADF) and reached the unreached people of different states. Today because of him Asha Deep Foundation is able to help more than 5, 00, 000 people of 73 slums of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. With great sadness ADF has to say that Father is no more with us and has left for the heavenly abode on 18.03.2013. But his work and life will always remain with us. His blessings will always be with us and ADF team will work together to take forward the work Father Rajamoney has started.
