The mission, which has numerous centres in India and other countries, is a Hindu religious organisation working to alleviate suffering, poverty and illiteracy.
Following the teachings of Swami Vivekananda (12 January 1863 – 4 July 1902) he was a chief disciple of the 19th-century Indian mystic Ramakrishna. He was a key figure in the introduction of the Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the Western world and is credited with raising interfaith awareness, bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion during the late 19th century. He was a major force in the revival of Hinduism in India, and contributed to the concept of nationalism in colonial India.
The mission helps underprivilaged children and has a special bond with Anna's Fund through it's swamis, especially in Mysore. We aid their projects which are completely grass roots.
Anna’s Fund is not a political or religious organisation in any form, but is grateful for the patronage and support of such an important Indian organisation.
