Amma is deeply committed to providing quality education regardless of economic status, gender, or race. From primary school to PhD programs, Amma’s educational institutions focus on inculcating universal human values and a commitment to service alongside rigorous academics.
Education with spiritual values transforms youth into highly capable and intelligent forces of goodness, compassion and service.
Why it Matters
1 out of 3 children worldwide never sets foot in a classroom.
Universal education has proven to be the most effective means of eliminating endemic poverty; every year of school increases an individual’s earning capacity by 10 percent or more. The covid pandemic has deepened the global learning crisis. More than 24 million learners, from pre-primary to university level, are at risk of never returning to school.
We work in partnership with leading humanitarian, peacekeeping and academic institutions worldwide.
