Mission Statement

AMURT’s mission is to help improve the quality of life for the poor and disadvantaged people of the world, and those affected by calamity and conflict. We encourage and enable individuals and communities to harness their own resources for securing the basic necessities of life and for gaining greater economic, social and spiritual fulfillment, while honoring their customs, language, and religious beliefs.


AMURT has established teams in 34 countries that strive to help people 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.

I volunteer with them in DC and love it. A truly great bunch of people who are in it to help people. Almost all donations go directly to their causes. I thoroughly recommend them.
