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 fulfilment, while honouring their customs, language, and religious beliefs.
AMURT (Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team) is one of the few private international voluntary organizations founded in India.

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.
