Mission Statement

Disaster relief and long term development. Meeting the immediate needs of disaster survivors and the longer term needs of poor people throughout the world..

Description

AMURT (Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team) is one of the few private voluntary organizations of Third World origin, being founded in India in 1965. Its original objective was to help meet the needs of victims of disasters that regularly hit the Indian sub-continent. Over the years AMURT has established teams in eighty countries, to create a network that can meet development and disaster needs almost anywhere in the world. In 1985 we broadened our goals to include long-term development. We feel we can play a useful role in helping the poor break the cycle of poverty and gain greater control over their lives. For us, development is human exchange: people sharing wisdom, knowledge and experience to build a better world.

This is an organization dedicate to helping others. Donations are directed to specific needs as requested by the donor. I enjoy volunteering in this small office(3 years to date). The hours are flexible. I am always learning something new about AMURT's global endeavors. I know that I am making a contribution.
