First Set of Graduates
Monday, October 10, 2016
The first group of Amrita SeRVe Fellows has completed their one year of service in our villages across India. From health camps to tutouring to establishing self help groups, the accomplishments of this small but strong set of people is something to be greatly respected and for which to be grateful.
On October 7th, Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri, Vice Chairman of the Mata Amritanandamayi Math, distributed to the fellows their certificates in a function in Amritapuri.
The fellowship started when Amma requested that one child from every family should serve in rural areas across India. The result is that this provides immense help to our society as a whole.
“These young people should live among the poor and understand the problems they face and try to find solutions to help them,” Amma explained. “In this way, we can awaken compassion in our youth, uplift the poor, and the country can grow holistically. If retirees were to similarly dedicate one or two years to serving the poor, it would have an even more dramatic impact on our country.”
Here is the list of the first set of Amrita SeRVe Fellows. A new group is about to start.
