About us

In the bustling streets of Delhi, amidst the chaos and clamor of everyday life, there exists a humble hero – Devdas Goswami. For over four decades, Devdas, a former truck driver, has dedicated his life to serving the homeless and needy, embodying the true spirit of compassion and selflessness.

A Heartfelt Beginning

Born into a lower-middle-class family in Haryana, Devdas experienced the harsh realities of poverty from a young age. With his father’s military service necessitating frequent relocations, Devdas often found himself struggling to make ends meet. At just 15 years old, he left school and ventured into the world of odd jobs, earning a meager income of Rs 50 to 60 per month.

Compassion in Action

It was during his time as a truck driver that Devdas’s compassionate nature truly shone through. Moved by the sight of hungry and helpless individuals along the highways, he made it his mission to provide them with food and support. Armed with just Rs 500 in earnings each month, Devdas equipped his truck with a kerosene stove and provisions to cook meals for the needy during his journeys.
