About Us

Called to Serve

In 1975, Dr. ADSN Prasad, a promising 22 year-old speech pathologist and audiologist, was administering to a patient in Madras (now Chennai), India. While performing his routine tasks, he discovered that this client and many others were sacrificing daily comforts for his services. In fact, many refrained from meals and other basic necessities of life in exchange to pay for his services. It was at that moment when he realized that he needed to take action on this injustice. From that day forward, Dr. Prasad dedicated himself to charity for the poor and destitute and Pathway India was born.
