about us

Amirtha Foundation has been working in India from 28-12-2017, focusing on alleviating
poverty and social exclusion. We do this through well-planned and comprehensive
programmes in health, education, livelihoods and disaster preparedness and response.
Amirtha Foundation is collaborating with development partners in fighting COVID-19 health
crisis. We are helping frontline workers stay safe, distributing dry rations to feed the needy,
raising awareness in our programme areas.

In 2017, Umayalingam founded an NGO called Amirtha Foundation NGO, for the
rehabilitation of people from street. The objective of the institution is to provide full time (24
hrs*7days) help needy people. .


Amirtha Foundation focuses on the empowerment of women and girls because they
are disproportionately affected by poverty and discrimination; and suffer abuse and
violations in the realization of their rights, entitlements and access and control over
resources. Also, experience shows that, when equipped with the proper resources,
women have the power to help whole families and entire communities overcome
poverty, marginalization and social injustice.



Amirtha Foundation has made a considerable shift in its programming approach over
the years. From direct service provision to enabling poor and vulnerable groups,
Amirtha Foundation has evolved into a rights-based organisation in order to address
underlying causes of poverty. Our focus is explicitly on the well-being, social position
and rights of women and girls from marginalised communities.
Amirtha Foundation focuses on developing the potential of women and girls to drive
long lasting equitable changes. We strategically emphasise on promoting quality

healthcare, inclusive education, gender equitable and sustainable livelihood
opportunities and disaster relief and preparedness.
Our efforts are focused to fight against underlying causes of poverty, building secure
and resilient communities and ensuring a life of dignity for all women and girls from
the most marginalised and vulnerable communities.
As we move ahead our key programming approach will continue to include social
analysis and action, gender transformative value chain approaches, leadership and
life skills strengthening, building capacities and leadership roles at multiple levels,
advocacy on national and international platforms and facilitating links and dialogues
between public, private and civil society.


AMIRTHA FOUNDATION is an NGO founded in 28-12-2017registered under trust act (102/BK-4/2017).

Amirtha Foundation has a management team which is a blend of competent
professionals. The leadership team comprises of development professionals with
