Late. Miss. Sindhu-Sudha K. Gaikawad, a graduate in science faculty who Worked as Sr. Scientist with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Nashik, India, was the instrumental member for establishing this organisation. She was awarded as Best Scientist by her employer in 1972. Due to excessive radiation to her body she could not continue her job and decided to resign from high profile government job. After resigning from her job, she started engaging herself in the social work among tribal community in Nashik, Dhule & Nandurabar districts of Maharashtra. She supported orphan children for their education and social security.

During this period she approached quite a few like minded people to look at establishing a formal organization so that the professionalism in service and scalability of the service for community development can be achieved. Dr. Ulhas Vasave, practicing allopathy doctor having worked in community development field in his individual capacity for more than a decade decided to work with Miss. Sindhu-Sudha K. Gaikawad and establish a non governmental charitable organization.

Dr. Ulhas Vasave shared this idea with his family and friends who readily consented to be a part of such organization and thus the registration of the organization was done under Societies Registration Act, 1860. Name of the organization was chosen as “Aashray-Durg Bahu-Uddeshiy Samajeek Sanstha” and the work of the organization formally began in Oct’ 2007.
