Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT) is a Kenyan not for profit non-governmental organization registered in Kenya in 1993.

Fully Kenyan and independent, the organization is inspired by Shri Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar; an Indian Guru and Philosopher who in 1965 sought to help victims of disasters that regularly hit the Indian sub-continent.

AMURT aims to improve health care, education, empower the youth with skills, foster entrepreneurial spirit and support initiatives that seek to preserve environment.

As of 2022, we have presence in 13 counties. Our core values are key to our identity and focus. They include:

Mission

To help improve the quality of life of poor and marginalized people through implementing a responsive health care system, inculcating human values, and improving the economic status of the communities we serve.

Vision 

To see a liberated, harmonious, resourceful society framed with fraternity, love, and mutual respect guarantees a fair and healthier world.

We are a Kenyan organization – registered in the country in 1993 as a local not for profit Non-Governmental Organization. We possess demonstrated experience and capacity in implementing programs that seek to improve human condition and advance socio-economic development with proven impact. Since inception, we have successfully implemented over 20 in fields that include humanitarian relief, health, education and environmental sustainability.

Our 120 staff, presence in 13 counties, a visionary management team and a modest portfolio of donors and partners attest to our fast-growing stature.

We fully comply with statutory and donor requirements – our current donor portfolio include the Embassy of Japan, USAID, UKAID, Global Fund and Comic Relief. We also enjoy working relations with national and local government; and co-implementing partners especially the University of Nairobi. For a full statement, download it here.

Implementing Staff

Our current annual operating budget is financed by grants from donors and internally generated resources. We intend to be more proactive and coordinated in our fundraising efforts and mobilize new sources of funding.

Safeguarding and child protection 

Since our mainstay interventions target the vulnerable – orphaned children, young women; and vulnerable adults, protecting them from any form of harm is key to our objectives. 

No two ways about it – at AMURT, the safety of our beneficiaries is key. We always endeavor to create and thrive in an environment that is free from abuse and exploitation  

AMURT has established diverse preventative measures that include policies and mandatory sensitization drives to ensure staff uphold highest standards of safeguarding.  

 Our beneficiaries are part of the process – we sensitize them on safeguarding and how they can report any breach. AMURT’s policies contain elaborate procedures for disciplinary action in case of a breach.  

Service to Humanity is Service to God

We run 20 projects in 10 counties spread within the Coastal, Western, Rift, Central and Nairobi regions including; Kiambu, Nairobi, Samburu, Marsabit, Siaya, Homa Bay, Mombasa, Kwale, Kilifi and Lamu counties to achieve its strategic goal of improving health care, education, youth empowerment, improving individual and group skills on income generating activities, initiating Agro-forestry, farming and environmental sustainability projects serving over 150,000 people countrywide.
