"Poverty isn't defined merely by GDP. It has political and
educational causes, and
multi dimensional remedies"
(Nobel Prize Laureate in Economic Sciences in 1998)
The 100 years old bungalow is the hub of IMPACT Community. It has three large 18x16’ halls assigned to training, library and dining hall for staff, trainees and guests. The office and kitchen are also on the ground floor. The day to day events of IMPACT unfold on this floor. It is ideally located right opposite the Railway Station and next to the Bus Station and Post Office.
Part of the top floor is residence for the Managing Trustee and also has two guestrooms and other facilities equipped to provide hospitality to five to seven guests at the same time.
The Bungalow sits in the middle of three and a half acres of open land belonging to the organization waiting to be developed. A bore-well with submersible pump, a gift from Living Water International, provides sweet clean water. Presently, in the absence of a permanent hall the open grounds in the front are used for community meetings etc. under a tent.
