With the efforts of two social workers – Smt. Bajigauri D. Munshi and Smt. Shivgauri K. Gajjar, an ashram was established on 15th March, 1907 for the welfare of helpless widows, divorcees etc. Today it is recognized as Vanita Vishram Institution . It is the largest educational institution that caters to the needs of a girl child from pre-school to college education in just one campus. It is spread over 27 acres of land in the heart of the Surat . Started as a humble organization with the motto of “Empowerment of Women through Education”, ” Vanita Vishram ” has today become a large respected organization committed to the advancement of women of all ages by providing them opportunities for personal development, empowerment and rejuvenation in a conducive environment. It offers the best of facilities for education, vocational training, sports and self-employment to almost 15000 girl students every year. The organization has rendered un-parallel service to society by empowering thousands of women during the last 100 years of its existence. Thus it is certainly a role model in the area of empowerment and education of women . Today it occupies an eminent position as an institution working for the welfare of the women and will continue to strive to meet the aspirations of women in the years to come.
