“Life is a journey, and everyone has their way. After thinking about the ride, we choose our paths. But, sometimes still after having the way to our ride. Life changes and our destiny brings us to another way.”
Surman is a hope which brings a better future for children. Surman is a home for abandoned and underprivileged children where they live as a family. Surman has been working to providing shelter and other necessary amenities for destitute abandoned children and women of the society for many years now. With constant efforts and desire to improve the lives of needy, and deprived children, the Orphanage (better known as Surman Home) has become a home for hundreds of orphans. Here everyone is treated with love and care, and they celebrate all religious festivals together. Their necessities like food, health, and schooling are taken care of in the home. So, they can get a better future. Surman Home is a well-known organization in India, and Surman has appreciated, with awards for dedication in their work.
The Surman Sansthan is registered under the Rajasthan Co-operative Act 1958 under (Section 28, 1958) as of Jan 31, 1998 (Registration No.- 552/97-98). Surman Sansthan saw the day of light after the long-cherished desire and ideology of the founder, Mrs. Manan Chaturvedi, ultimately took a structural shape.

The childhood of many children in India has been lost, in the streets somewhere. Somewhere in their pure hearts, they can barely dream of a stable future. Surman Sansthan is working to turning underprivileged children's dreams into reality. The power to make a vast change in society is within us. Come and join us in the campaign with our NGO working for child welfare. We have a lot of programs named - Palna, Koshish, Phulwari, Tapasya, and Jeevan Life.
Surman Sansthan is only not providing the facility for shelter to the orphan children but works towards the betterment of each child living in the Surman Home. We provide the facility of education, better health, medical aid, and extracurricular activities so that each child can explore the creativity within.

The project ‘sambal’ is initiated by Surman Sansthan for the adult age group of our Sansthan, which is above 18 years. This project was started by us 2-3 years back and we are still running this project successfully. The motive of this project is to provide financial and educational assistance to the adult children of our Sansthan. After the age of 18, the children are free to move out from our Sansthan as per government and our NGO rules. The issue here is that some children are very bright in studies and their other creative skills but due to no financial assistance, they are left with no source of moving towards their bright future. So, to help these children to let them achieve their dreams, we initiated making homemade chocolates, paper bags, woolen clothes, homemade dolls, dresses, cotton bags, magazines along with their participation. This initiative provides them self-sufficient and doesn’t make them feel that they are anyhow burden on our Surman family. This also makes these children capable of supporting their siblings and other children here. Also, the children above 18 years who are not from our Surman family but need support in their education as their family is incapable of providing them with it are provided with help and support by us. The money and fund earned with all these activities are directly dedicated to their further education. All the different products we create in this project is named ‘Klleemm’.
MANAN CHATURVEDI is the founder and runner of the NGO called Surman Sansthan. She is a social activist for child rights awareness of mishappening around the world with children, and also, she is the Ex-Chairperson of Rajasthan State Commission for Protection of Child Rights.
MANAN CHATURVEDI, who selflessly care for homeless and destitute children. A living example of pure love and sacrifices to make a difference in today’s society. Those children who were rejected by society and in the middle of a crisis, MANAN extended a hand to care for over 110 children without blinking an eye.
My greatest joy is expressing one cohesive thought within a body of work that can be shown in its entirety.
Manan Chaturvedi was used to distribute stationery, clothing, food, etc for many years in slum areas to kids. One day she accidentally found a girl name Gauri, who had a severe injury on her head and bleeding badly. She took the baby to a hospital and stayed there with the girl for three days. People suggested her to take the girl child to her own home. She did the same, and the journey started on that day. In that month, she got eight more children and after that, the number increased, and after that who came from where was never an issue. This kind of incidents or happenings gave birth to “Surman Sansthan”. The Surman Sansthan has rehabilitated 370 children into their families, 110 children are living at the Surman Sansthan presently.

Palna- Surman Palna is a shelter home where the abandoned and destitute children are nurtured, and a firm foundation is provided for their happy and successful future. Children of all ages live in one house as a family. The abandoned children of infants to 6 years are considered in this project. We provided shelter to them, our founder- ‘Manan Chaturvedi’ became a mother to them and gave them the nurturing and love that they required at their precious and sensitive period of age. We were keen to know, who were leaving these small children at public roads, toilets, dustbins, and other random places. The different reasons for leaving the children were also taken into consideration to know the root reasons. The factors that came out were mainly poverty, girl child, unwanted child, a disabled child, and single mother. To support the single mother issue due to poverty was also raised by us in another project that is Koshish. The project ‘Palna’ by us was for giving another life, fruitful and life to the abandoned children, who are nowhere responsible in this cruel act of humanity and nature.
Koshish- Koshish is our program to support and encourage women who have been suffering in the hands of fate and by their family members. Through Koshish, we strive to make these women self-dependent. Due to poverty, single and poor mothers were unable to feed their children and hence they were left with no option but to abandon them. To help these mothers to be with their children and to eliminate their helplessness, we started our project Koshish. We started making paper bags, stitching, and other works that provided self-income to those mothers. We adopted these mothers along with their children, to enable them to be self-dependent and not leave and sacrifice their children due to their poverty. We adopted many cases like these, one of them was where a lady was detected with breast cancer, she was a single mother. We adopted the whole of their family and also, provided medical help to the lady with her chemotherapy. We also undertook the responsibility of educating her 3 children. Now, we are very proud that all 3 children are well settled. Like this, there are many cases where we provided stitching machines to women and single mothers to empower and support them in their tough times and to help them to lead the battle of life on their own.
Jeevan- A distress call from helpless parents pleading for support in the treatment of their children, gave birth to another initiative called Jeevan. We started temporary adoption of the children needing medical aids and parents who are not in the position to bear the medical aid cost. To help these children and their families and to provide them a new life, we came out with our project Jeevan. This project was dedicated to helping the poor children who were so deprived of their health and bad physical conditions. The helplessness of their families to provide the proper aid to their children was a big issue. There were children detected with diseases like malnutrition, anemia, and septicemia, who we came across. A child having anemia was adopted by us who we founded in a public toilet. The child at that time had only 2.7 of hemoglobin in his body. The child was extremely weak but we didn’t lose hope and admitted him to J K Lon, Jaipur. We looked after the child and provided him with the best health care to provide that innocent child his life back. There are so many cases like these where we undertook the responsibility of children fighting with severe diseases and to enlighten their ‘Jeevan’.
Tapasya- It is an effort by the Surman family to extend helping hands to the children who need financial help for education. We have been successful in supporting children by way of providing their education. To connect with society a child must be educated enough to lead his life efficiently and effectively. We adopted children who were enabled to access basic education even at the age of 11- 12 years. We prepared a smart syllabus for them, to teach them the basic ground of education at our Surman home. We with our continuous effort or 1 or 2 years, taught them and prepared them to go to school. We appointed teachers to teach them at home. We successfully with our teaching pattern admitted some of the children direct in 10th standard also. We are so happy to see them leading their life with their key interest courses and degrees. To give them the ray of hope and light with the education in the children’s life was our motive of this project.
How Surman Sansthan Started –
The establishment of Surman got triggered at three different places to Manan Chaturvedi.
• When Manan Chaturvedi was young, she was in school, and she had a girl in her class who was not able to deposit her fees, and the girl was going to leave the school, and Manan got to know, and she got emotionally touched and didn't wanted to let her classmate leave the school. So, she decided to collect the fund from her classmates. The next day every student bought their pocket money. Manan started collecting the fund in the girl's lunch box lunchbox then went to the principles office to submit the fee to the girl's classmates.
• The second incident happened when Manan was living in her home with her three biological children at Balaji Apartment. In her living area bird was living on a switch-board in her nest near the sealing of the room. One day, the bird was going out to get food for her baby birds, but accidentally she got under the swing fan, and the bird instantly lost her life, left behind her babies in the nest. Manan decided to take care of the baby birds. She did their feeding, took care of their security until they were able to fly.
• The third incident happened when a fashion designer aspirant was ready to begin her journey and was on her way to Delhi to fulfill her dreams but saw a tiny little 7-year-old starved girl near garbage eagerly searching for something to eat, that moment. She pledged her life to be a mother of these children abjured by society. She a had thought at a moment for whom I am going to design the clothes, when in my country children don't even have a cloth to wear and food for their starvation then She chose not to color the clothes but to fill colors in the lonesome eyes of the nation after that, for many years she used to distribute clothing and food to slum kids. One day she accidentally found a girl named Gauri who had a severe injury on her head and bleeding badly. She took the baby to a hospital and stayed there with the girl for three days. People suggested her to take the girl child to her own home. She did the same, and the journey started on that day. In that month, she got eight more children, and after that, the number increased, and after that who came from where was never an issue, this kind of incidents or happenings gave birth to Surman Sansthan.
The Journey After Surman Started-
When Surman started, there was no child welfare committee established at that time, and the number increased of children, and the shortage of funds was increasing. The size of the Surman family was growing, which is a good sign. Between the process, Surman not only got bound within their children. the founder decided to raise her hand for other areas in the society and found the issues women faces, teenagers facing, etc. and launched few projects –
• Palna - Surman Palna is a shelter home where the abandoned and destitute children are nurtured, and a firm foundation is provided for their happy and successful future. Children of all ages live in one house as a family.
• Koshish - Koshish is our program to support and encourage women who have been suffering in the hands of fate and by their family members. Through Koshish, we strive to make these women self-dependent.
• Jeevan - A distress call from helpless parents, pleading for support in the treatment of their children, gave birth to another initiative called Jeevan. We started temporary adoption of the children needing medical aids and parents who are not in a position to bear the medical aid cost.
• Tapasya - It is an effort by the Surman family to extend helping hands to the children who need financial help for education. We have been successful in supporting children by way of providing their education.
Manan decided to take no financial aid from the government. Due to no financial support from the government, Surman got lack of funds to run the organization, So the founder decided to do the painting to raise the fund, which is the foremost source to raise funds. The founder also hosts theater shows to raise funds. But only a few hands can’t make the future of many. They need your support. Our hands together can crack the shell of darkness in the children's life. Take them to the bright light with us.
Dream Home –
Anandloak is a dream project where Surman can provide shelter to more underprivileged children, and more children will be able to have a stable future.
The shelter is constructing at Anand Lok JDA scheme along the Jaipur- Sikar road, spread over 2616 sq. m. It will provide a home to 1200 children once completed, and lots of skill development activities also will be run. The shelter will be fully ventilated, highly hygienic, and equipped with all the primary facilities needed for the children. The construction of the structure of the six floors has been completed. The furnishing work is in progress. Apart from food, cloth, and shelter, we are also committed to providing every child with an opportunity to have a bright and great future. Slowly but undeviatingly, we are moving towards our dreams. Are you willing to support us in the noble cause? Currently, on the ground floor of our dream project, Anadloak boys are living. And girls are living in our main branch of Surman home with children who are less than six years old.
