Our Pharsar Centre

Post image for Our Pharsar Centre


The Pharsar property was Ravi Rai’s ancestral home.  His father, the late Ram Awadh Rai built it as a single-storey home in 1956, and named it “Gaya Dham” after his own father, who’s name was Gaya.  Gaya Dham  means “Gaya’s Place”.

When Ravi moved back to India in 1998, he added the two upper storeys, with a vision of rescuing 25 under-privileged children, and sharing his good-fortune with them.  In 1999, Children of Mother Earth began operations from Ravi’s own home.  Five centres and over 200 children later…

The upper facade of Ravi’s home (now our Pharsar centre) displays the symbols of all the major religions of the world, and carries the motto of Children of Mother Earth:

Humanity is our religion.  Earth is our Motherland.
