About us



Asha Vihar lies in the savanna of Jharkhand and means “place of hope”. Asha Vihar is a development aid project with a hospital, where people are treated with conventional medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, ayurveda and physiotherapy. Asha Vihar also includes the Children’s Village, an orphanage that currently houses 34 children and adolescents. Another centerpiece of Asha Vihar is its support in the villages.  In order to improve the health situation of the people in the most remote regions, there are small outposts of Asha Vihar, the so-called Satellite Stations.  In addition, Asha Vihar regularly conducts humanitarian and educational projects in the surrounding villages. Finally, there is a surgical camp, in which children with severe deformations of the feet and legs, such as Club feet, can be treated.

Asha Vihar, founded in 1995 as a small acupuncture clinic has since become a well-known point of action to which people travel – even from the surrounding states. We are proud that Asha Vihar is recognized by the WHO as a training center for acupuncture.
