The noble work of Dr. Adelheid Hueffer continued in Mumbai since 1976. As a medical doctor she helped many poor and needy people in the slum communities in Andheri. Dr. Hueffer started helping few very poor and needy widows from the slum communities, who were unable to look after their children.
In the Year 1979 Ashadeep established it's first Community Centre at Bamanwada Village.
In the process of extension, we got our second centre at Shakti Apartments, Chakala, Andheri (E), in the year 1980. With the expansion of work, the need was felt to have a formal registered organization; which resulted in the formation of "Ashadeep Association". In 1980, "Ashadeep Association" was registered under the Mumbai Public Trust Act, 1950 with the charity commissioner.
The demands for more Centres increased and in 1981, we initiated our third centre at Bamanwada Hill, Vile Parle (East).
Simultaneously we developed our other centres:
a. Sahar Village - 1981
b. Sunder Nagar - 1990
c. Dindoshi - 1998
d. Sakinaka - 1999
Today "Ashadeep Association" is functioning through it's seven day care centres and the networking is done from the Head Office at "Shakti Apartments", Chakala, Andheri (E), Mumbai, India.
