VILLAGE NEWS

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.

THE ROAD AHEAD

When we see the statistics about rural India from the perspective of numbers only, the size can be overwhelming. However, great social change through the ages often goes one step at a time.
