Everyone in the world should be able to sleep without fear, at least for one night. Everyone should be able to eat to his fill, at least for one day. There should be at least one day when hospitals see no one admitted due to violence. By doing selfless service for at least one day, everyone should help the poor and needy. It is Amma’s prayer that at least this small dream be realised.

Amrita SeRVe’s vision is to empower villagers to live in communities that are prosperous and self reliant. These are places where people are healthy and educated and where they lead lives of dignity in a clean, pollution-free environment.

Such conditions will lead us to vibrant cultures rooted in India’s age-old traditional wisdom. Because villagers are the providers of most of our food supply, this positive existence can lead to a sense of community and gratitude throughout the entire country.
