The mission, which has numerous centres in India and other countries, is a Hindu religious organisation working to alleviate suffering, poverty and illiteracy.
The mission follows the teachings of Swami Vivekananda (12 January 1863 – 4 July 1902) who in turn 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. The mission's work is available to all regardless of race or creed.
Please see our photographs of the mission under the galleries heading. All photos were taken by Annas Fund
