Charity information


This UK chapter of a global charity concentrates fundraising efforts on AMURT service projects in East Europe and West Africa.

Founded 1986

  • Mission statement

    AMURT is an international relief and development organisation, founded in India - significantly from within the developing world. Our grassroots relief teams and development projects work in over 80 countries. Our greatest strength is our wealth of human resource, particularly our dedicated local staff and our experienced, life-long volunteers, many of whom have sacrificed careers and material comfort to serve others.

    We work with local people and resources to relieve immediate suffering at the time of an emergency.
    We also work to empower local communities to be self-sustainable in the long term.
    We see people as capable of achieving far more than they often imagine and support them, within their own social, cultural and religious context, to realise their full human and spiritual potential.
    We believe that real progress comes with the all-round development of individuals and their communities.
    We empower individuals to be the bright, free-thinking drivers of change. Together with these community leaders we foster the principles of responsibility, love and leadership, helping to uplift the whole community.
    We lay great emphasis on the development of sustainable projects, which generate their own income and thus can maintain themselves in the long run.
