 Image Anandwan is the place where Magsaysay Award winner Baba Amte has set up a charitable institute for leprosy patients. It is about 100 k.m. From Nagpur – Chandrapur road. Leprosy patients are given treatment, trained and rehabilitated here.

 It was founded in 1951 by noted social activist, Baba Amte. The project is run by the organisation Maharogi Seva Samiti, the Samitis other projects are Lok Biradari Prakalp and The Somnath Project

Baba Amte developed Anandwan to be a self-contained ashram (which could be described as "a kibbutz for the sick"). Residents are self-sufficient in terms of basic subsistence through agriculture. Land fertility in the region has been revived and is maintained by using organic farming techniques and micro-water management. In addition, the ashram has various home-based, small-scale industry units run by the residents that generate income to cover additional requirements

Baba Amte also shaped Anandwan as an environmentally-aware community to have practices in place for energy utilization, waste recycling and minimizing usage of natural resources that might otherwise lead to their depletion.

Anandwan today spreads over 200 hectares and has two hospitals, a university, an orphanage, a school for the blind and a technical wing. More than 5,000 people are dependent on it for their livelihood.
