Shanti Sadhana Ashram (SSA) is located on the outskirts of Guwahati city in Assam. It runs eight schools in and around the city of Guwahati for kids from the poor socio economic backgrounds. Each school caters to the children from at least 3-4 nearby villages. These schools follow the system of non-formal and formal education for the children of ages 3 to 12 years. The classes fall into 3 categories - Pre-primary, Primary and Upper Primary.
To make all the children in these villages go to the government schools after attending the pre-primary or primary level of study through formal education.
Shanti Sadhana Ashram is one of the pioneer organisations in championing the cause of literacy in the backward districts of Assam, which it started as a "Literacy As a Movement of the People (LAMP)" in 1989. The National Literacy Mission, Govt. of India, recognized the Ashram's contributions to this literacy movement by giving the National Award on Literacy to its Secretary Mr. Hembhai in 1997. Since the beginning of the literacy movement the Ashram had an ardent desire to start some innovative schools for deprived children scattered in the remote areas of many districts.

The funds are sent to Asha Trust till 2010 as a collaborative project between Asha Trust and Shanthi Sadhana Ashram. After 2010, SSS got own FCRA and got funds directly.
