Six years ago, I didn't know much about Amma or the M.A. Math. After my wife met Amma in 2003 I used to accompany her as it was a long drive from our house. Slowly I started to see Amma's service attitude, her compassion for all human beings, her perseverance and her relentless pursuit of providing comfort for the needy. She never gets tired of serving the needy, and has instilled the same spirit in a number of her followers. Her organization was one of the first one to pledge support for the Tsunami victims in India. The organization also gave a large sum of money to the victims of Katrina in Louisiana, USA.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My personal life as well as in the lives of few close friends and family. The service attitude Amma brings in everybody and her insistence on taking care of the environment has been of great impact. As a result of this we have started to recycle more.

MA Math has been a great instrument of transformation and awakening to me. Amma's first Darshan and unconditional love kindled the first spark of love and service in me. The dramatic transformation and healing She brings about in all the people around her and away from her is remarkable and inspiring. The love and spirit of service she kindles in each individual spreads like fire across her organization. A good example is the MA math support for the Tsunami victims and the Suicide farmers in India. Inspired by Amma, thousands of people across the world reached out to contribute thier share, some left their jobs to be physically there to help, while others sent in their contributions in cash or kind. The organization is a role model in commitment to humanitarian activities, while Amma is the inspiration behind it, spreading the message of Love, Compassion, and Self-less service.

If MA math has more funds, it could reach out to and uplift more people across the world and would give the volunteers more opportunities to serve and express their love to all people across the world.

I have enjoyed volunteering with the MA math over the last five + years. Amma is a great inspiration to all the activities and Her tireless efforts sets the bar very high for all of us volunteers and staff. The Math is very focused on providing support to the needy and the selection of projects (like Tsunami Relief, etc.) are a reflection of this focus.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The satisfaction of knowing the poor were helped with the "ALL" the money raised, and it was not used to pay the salary of managers and other employees in the organization...

Good hearted!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide 20 million dollars of relief, because all the work is volunteer based, and their are no salaries.... We have engineers, doctors, phd's, a wealth of people who donate their time & skills for the Math's projects...

Being with Amma is a blessing in itself. And to get a chance to serve Her is the biggest blessing. Amma always stresses on how nature is not taken care of and insists on doing good to the nature and not harming it. With Ammas go green projects not only did I the chance to become close to nature but also an opportunity to do something for the society!

I have participated in many projects for the MA Math humanitarian charities, from regularly cooking for and feeding the homeless, to holding art auctions to raise money for the devastation of the 2004 tsunami and even Katrina. I just returned from two months at MA Math, where I wrote and directed some educational videos that will be incorporated into a cutting edge software that uses haptics to teach young Malayalam men and women trade skills so they can apprentice with a professional and get a job. The software is aimed at educating students in fields where the equipment is expensive or hard to come by; the pilot program is vocational plumbing. Touch-screen training stations are planned for throughout India. Students watch an instructional video, then learn to operate the tools in virtual space on a computer. Bench vices, pipe vices, die and die stock, drilling machines, etc. are quite expensive and rare for rural Indians. The haptics equipment connected to the computer allows the students to manipulate a CGI version of the tools in a manner as close to reality as possible. So these students then have basic skills they can take to apprentice with a professional and then find a job. Plumbing is the pilot program, but the applications are endless, and useful wherever the necessary equipment is out of reach of the ordinary rural Indian - aircraft maintenance, for instance, is the next planned vocational module. Though I only spent two months on this particular project, many more will be necessary to complete the entire program; my part is a tiny part in the whole of a group of dedicated visionaries and programmers and professionals, all of whom lend their skills voluntarily to create a series of educational stations that will help educate rural India and give its people the means to make a living in the global economy.

I had more time to dedicate to the vocational training program. I'm looking forward to writing more from Los Angeles, but anticipating my next trip to MA Math.

As someone who has been involved with the above organisation for fifteen years, I never cease to be amazed at the incredible array of charitable activities that Amma oversees through her organisation. The list is amazingly long, and grows dramatically every year. The other amazing thing is that there is never an active request for money. All of the activities are possible because countless thousands are moved to help others in need as a result of Amma's personal example. Some examples are: 100,000 homes build in India and given away free of charge to the most needy. 50,000 pensions given to widows, single parents and those in greatest need Around $60 million dollars in aid was provided when the tsunami struck some years ago $1 million was proved for victimes of Hurricane Katrina Dozens of schools, tertiary institutions, hospitals, hospices, orphanages, etc. A senior official from the United Nations commented on how incredibly effective every dollar of contribution to Amma's charitable activities is, compared with virtually all other non-profit organisations. For all those wanted to help, rest assured that any support you give will be very gratefully received and very effectively used!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways. I have personally experienced Amma's blessings and support for the last 15 years, and have enjoyed working with likeminded souls who want to help others souls in need. I know I have grown a great deal because of my involvement with Amma.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Don't know! I think what Amma and others do is incredible!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Amma's amazing example of selflessness and compassion for those in need, and the bonding with others who feel drawn to assist the deprived and needy.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Highly dedicated. The Swamis and others who work closely with Amma are wonderful examples of dedication, integrity and selflessness, just like Amma

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do even more than it does now. That amount of money would go an incredible distance with Amma's charitable activities.

Ways to make it better...

I'd had more time to be involved in its amazingly diverse array of charitable activities

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Most people caught up in their own little world (including me!) The multiplicity of other non-profit organisations also doing good work and needing money. The fact that the great majority of people involved are volunteers with very busy lives.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Amma deserves the Nobel Prize for Peace!

Mata Amritanandamayi Math is the best non profit I have ever come across in one key way - the impact it has on the cause for every dollar donated. I have an MBA in Finance from the Wharton School of Business where we studied the challenges and the overheads in managing non-profits. The key detail that fascinated me about this organization is that over 95% of the money donated actually goes to the cause with less than 5% overhead while other organizations working toward the same causes have 40-50% overhead! This remarkable achievement by this organization while maintaining the highest quality of execution in a sustainable manner for over a decade is worthy of recognition.

use 99% of that directly for the cause.
