AMURT (Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team) is one of the few private international voluntary organizations founded in India. Since its inception in 1965 its original objective was to help meet the needs of the affected population after disasters that regularly hit the Indian sub-continent. Over the years AMURT has established teams in thirty-four countries, to create a network that can meet disaster and development needs almost anywhere in the world. In 1985 the organization broadened its goals to include long-term development.
AMURTEL was founded in 1975 by P.R. Sarkar to respond specifically to the problems faced by women and children in their struggle to develop. AMURTEL is managed by women and creates solutions that raise the standard of health and education of women and their children. Our programs encourage women to gain greater self-determination and economic independence as they support women in breaking the cycle of poverty.
