Our Founders


Living Sanctuary Ministries (LSM) was founded on 14th January 2007 in Gurgaon, Haryana - India. Keeping the focus on Transforming Lives, with Purpose Driven Goals and Passion to Make a Difference, LSM continues to pursue what we believe is ‘Possible’.

Our co-founders Agnelo and Nicola Xavier, hail from Kolkata and have worked with esteemed organizations like, The Oberoi Hotels, CESC (Calcutta Electric Supply Corporation), IREO, Hyatt Hotels, Carier India, Xerox, etc.

Having carried for several years, a deep burning passion for helping the poor and less fortunate sections of the society, brought our co-founders’, corporate careers to a no return point.  This turn-around decision was made while they were in pursuit toward achieving a successful corporate career in Delhi NCR. This decision radically redirected their purpose and destiny into investing their lifetime and making a difference for the less fortunate and destitute.

Driven by a burden and passion to see lives transformed, to better the present and future social environments holistically, Living Sanctuary Ministries pursue to see it happen TODAY and the Next Generation to come.
