Over the past 35 years, we’ve learned a lot about effective delivery of aid to those in need, and we’ve built an infrastructure capable of delivering a broad range of humanitarian services on a massive scale. Amma has always said that it is her dream that one day, everyone in the world would have their basic needs met. Now, for villages spread throughout every corner of India, we’re going to do everything we can to make that dream come true.
In line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we’re working to make meaningful improvements in every aspect of the villagers’ lives
From health to water and sanitation, education to income generation, and agriculture to sustainable infrastructure. In every case, the approach is tailored to empower the villagers to become self-reliant for the long haul.
