Prem Sewa Shikshan Sangh was established in October 1981 by its founder, Frank M. Juelich. In 1982 Prem Sewa purchased 17.75 acres of land on the outskirts of Nagpur, India to develop it into a home for underprivileged children.
Our boys' hostel, "Kalpana Bhavan" (House of Imagination) had its beginnings in the small hut pictured below, which initially housed ten students and three staff, including Frank, whom everybody calls Bhaisahib. Under his guidance the hostel then developed into what it is now.
In 1987 we started the first of our three schools.
Our girls' home, Indira Bhavan, was established in 1992.
In December 1994 Mr. Yohan Raut became President of the society. In December 2004 Mr. Bapu Desai was appointed Administrator of the hostels and in March 2010 as the Director. Both Mr. Raut and Mr. Desai are products of the home.
In the year 2007, we celebrated Prem Sewa's 25th anniversary.
Today we house and educate more than 1,000 children each year.
