It all started with the simplest of gestures, an embrace. This simple yet powerful act, a mother's embrace, has become both catalyst and symbol for the growing International Humanitarian Movement that is - Embracing The World.
Each of Embracing the World’s projects has been launched to help the world’s poor who have come to unburden their hearts and cry on Amma’s shoulder. That’s where we come in, and you can, too. Receiving Amma’s embrace, many feel inspired and want to give something back. With the vast majority of our efforts carried out by volunteers, and zero paid administrators at the national and international levels, we’re able to do more with less. This combined with an ethic of personal renunciation demonstrated by Amma and filtered down to every level of the organization ensures that the funds raised directly reach the beneficiaries of our projects, instead of being dissipated in administrative overhead.
