OUR MISSION

At the heart of our mission lies a profound commitment to the preservation and maintenance of Vrindavan's sacred sites. This dedication is reflected in the meticulous care of the holy places, including the revered footprints installed during the Spiritual Safari. RadhaSeva's efforts ensure that these sanctified spaces are not only preserved for future generations but also that they continue to inspire and uplift all who visit. Our work is a bridge between the past and the future, safeguarding the spiritual heritage of the holy dham, and most particularly Govardhan and Radha Kunda. 

RadhaSeva is a devoted non-profit charity organization. For over 15 years, we have been committed to the empowerment of widows and the vibrant local Brajavasi community in Vrindavan, India. Our mission is to protect and preserve the sacred land and its rich history while uplifting and nourishing the well-being of its inhabitants, ensuring a sustainable and thriving future for all.

We’re on a mission to empower Vrindavan’s people while protecting its sacred land and history.
 

We work with widows of Radha Kunda and the Brajavasis to support the community and protect the sacred spaces of Radha Kunda and Govardhan.

Empowering Widows & Local Brajavasis

We provide widows and local Brajavasis an opportunity for personal and community empowerment with fair pay wages and community initiatives, bringing them out of poverty and taking on projects that matter most.

Govardhan Forest

MAINTAINED BY: Our Govardhan Brajavasi Team

Govardhan holds a pivotal place within the heart of Vraja and is celebrated for its spiritual significance and natural beauty. Situated approximately 23 kilometers from Mathura, India, Govardhan is not only a key pilgrimage center but also a town rich in cultural and religious heritage. The sacred Govardhan Hill is central to the town's spiritual landscape, particularly in the pastimes of Lord Krishna and the lifting of Govardhan Hill to protect the inhabitants of Vraja from torrential rains.

The Widows of Radha Kunda

About the Widows

We at RadhaSeva have been unwavering in our dedication to the welfare and empowerment of the widows of Radha Kunda in Vrindavan for over 15 years. Our commitment stretches to ensuring every widowed woman is nurtured and empowered.

The widows of Vrindavan, often shunned by their communities and left to fend for themselves, have found a beacon of hope within our community. Through our comprehensive support programs, we not only provide these women with essential resources like meals, housing, and medical care but also ensure their meaningful engagement in community upliftment and meaningful seva all around Radha Kunda. This empowerment allows them to regain their dignity, fostering a sense of belonging and purpose within the Vrindavan community​.

These efforts are part of our broader vision to transform the lives of Vrindavan's widows, many of whom are illiterate and were married off at a young age, only to be widowed early in life. By offering them opportunities for employment that contribute significantly to the community, we attempt to disrupt the social stigmas these women face. This transformative approach not only enhances their quality of life but also sets a precedent for the value of women in society, inspiring a brighter future for all women and girls in Vrindavan​​.

Our initiatives extend beyond individual support, encompassing environmental stewardship essential in Radha Kunda and Govardhan by removing trash from sacred spaces and maintaining temples and kunds around Radha Kunda and Govardhan. Our work embodies a holistic approach to seva, honoring Lord Sri Krishna and His beloved Srimati Radharani by caring for His devotees and His most cherished pastime places.

Widows Lovingly Maintain Radha Kunda Every Single Day

Our Spiritual Safari Commitment

We are committed, with our team of Radha Kunda widows and Brajavais, to carry on the maintenance of Lord Caitanya's Lotus Footprints in Govardhan and Vrindavan - BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP

We have made it our personal mission to carry on your work as part of Jayapataka Swami's Spiritual Safari to be sure that all installed Lotus Footprints are cared for and maintained, along with the surrounding areas. For footprints installed in locations where pujaris of those sacred places will maintain them, we'll occasionally check in to see if they require any further support. 
For sites without this, we will personally manage each installed footprint and care for the surrounding areas. 

We personally maintain the Lotus Footprint already installed in Radha Kunda, and we will continue to take care of Govinda Kunda, Kusum Sarovar, and throughout Vrindavan. 

Not only that, we are committed to the continued care of Govardhan and Radha Kunda as a whole, removing trash, restoring kundas, and making gardens - but...


WE NEED YOUR HELP.

Our small team can only do so much, and we need your help to be able to do so much more! Help us double our team and more to clean and maintain Radha Kunda and Govardhan daily!

It takes only $5 a month to make a huge impact.

With your support, we can ensure that all of Govardhan is free of trash and restored to its natural beauty.

Join our legacy today to keep Radha Kunda and Govardhan beautiful for tomorrow.
