Mission Statement

Providing community based care and support system to the needy: ensuring their access to skills and opportunities to attain dignified economic and social status in the community.

Description

Bharathamatha Family Welfare Foundation (formerly known as Bharathamatha Women’s Awareness Center) was founded in the year 1989 by Mr. Edaiyoor R.V. Manimaran, a disciple of "Boomithana Vallal" R.V. Rahavan. R.V. Rahavan was a disciple of Shri. Vinoba Bhave. Even after free distribution (Boomi Dhan) of lands to poor people, the poor continued to suffer due to poor knowledge and access to financial services. Bharathamatha Family Welfare Foundation decided to help these people sustain the benefits they have gotten and improve them socially, economically and culturally.

For more than 28 years, Bharathamatha Foundation has been helping the poor and marginalized communities have access to financial, technical and institutional support in order to improve and strengthen their livelihood opportunities. Bharathamatha Family Welfare Foundation presently works with 21 private and public development aid agencies to reach out to 92,000 households in Thiruvarur, Nagapattinam, and Thanjavur Districts of Tamil Nadu, further Bharathamatha works for the welfare of the children, women and marginalized communities in 870 villages. Bharathamatha Family Welfare Foundation was at the forefront in helping the families affected by Tsunami (24th December 2004) by providing relief materials to the badly affected people besides coordinating with and supporting various relief agencies to deliver their services to numerous coastal communities. Bharathamatha provided relief services to 8,000 households in 21 Tsunami affected villages.
