Batwadi is a special village. Located on the hillside above flood ravaged areas of Chandrapuri, Batwadi found room for us to build 15 “Amma Houses” scattered across their fields. The people of Batwadi have embraced Amma and everything we are doing in Uttarakhand.

Most noteable is how so many villagers will turn out to help with whatever project is at hand. Women young and old, children, and eventhe men are there working with us a every turn.

The Pipal Tree Temple is the heart of Batwadi and serves as the open air meeting space for all village events.

We have built a community center surrounding this ancient tree to bring all of those functions indoors. It includes a large meeting space, kitchen,classrooms for tuition and kindergarten, possible clinic space, and much more.
