After completing his 8th standard, Sakharam shifted to the Smt. Jamuna Bai Chanchlani AIM For Seva Chatralayam for Boys at Hoshangabad, Madhya Pradesh.
After completing his schooling in 2014, Sakharam enrolled in a government Polytechnic College in the region.

Sakharam chronicles his life’s journey.
“Respected Swamiji, respected teachers and all other supporters of AIM for Seva, my greetings to you all. I am Sakahram Muwel and I come from a small village Jirapur, located in Dhar district, Madhya Pradesh.
I would first of all like to express gratitude to my Swami ji (Swami Aishvaryananda Saraswati ji, the coordinator of our Chatralayams in Madhya Pradesh) who was like a father figure to me. Today, I would like to share how your contribution and the AIM for Seva eco system helped shape my personality. I would like to begin by sharing my early Chatralayam years.
When I joined the Chatralayam (in Indore) in Class 6, I did not enjoy the experience very much as I was separated from my parents and siblings. As time passed, the Chatralayam residents became my family and I got the same love and affection here as I got from my household.
Thirteen years back when I joined the Chatralayam, I did not have the slightest hint that my life would undergo a massive transformation. Today, I am in the police force in Mandla zilla, Madhya Pradesh and I am very happy. The reason for this is my parents and the contribution of my hostel coordinator and other staff at AIM for Seva. I take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of them.
If I were to talk about education, I can safely state that one can get educated in any institution but culture and value based education can only be imbibed at AIM for Seva. I would like to tell all my brother students at AIM for Seva to study with full concentration and ensure that you make your parents proud and also make sure that your institution’s flag flies high.
I would once again like to share my heartfelt gratitude to all the Sadhu coordinators of AIM for Seva and all other supporters associated with this movement. I would continue my association with AIM for Seva and would support it in whatever way I can.
Thank You. Jai Hind.”
