Who are we

The Ramakrishna Ashrama (Orphanage), Penang is a charitable organisation founded in 1938 under the inspiration and guidance of His Holiness Swami Bhaswarananda Maharaj who was then stationed at The Ramakrishna Mission, Singapore.

Apart from spiritual activities, the Ashrama runs an Orphanage catering for both boys and girls, ages ranging from six to 20 years old. The orphanage admits orphaned children who are poor and needy. These are the children that has no one to care for. The need every help from the society to assist with basic needs and education. The Ramakrishna Ashrama endeavours its best to help the needy.

The children in the home are given proper education and are well cared for so that they will grow up to be useful citizens. Besides education, the girls learn traditional dancing, cooking and house keeping. Children excelling well academically are encouraged to pursue higher education.

The cost of maintaining the Ashrama has increased tremendously during the past few years and the Executive Council of the Ramakrishna Ashrama is doing its best to meet the expenses from donations and contributions received from the members and community. The Ministry of Welfare Services (Malaysia) also contributes to the Orphanage.
