Humanitarian Initiatives - An Update

Pensions, Scholarships and Homes for the Poor
As a part of Amma's 61st birthday humanitarian initiatives a pledge was made to increase the numbers of pension and scholarship recipients to 99,000 and 51,000 respectively, and to build 500 homes this year in addition to the more than 45,000 we have already built across India for families in need. 
This week in Karunagapally, Kerala, 3,000 widows and other women in poverty were added to the rolls of our pension program; 500 underprivileged children were enrolled in our scholarship program; and 15 needy families who had been living in inadequate shelter were given keys to new houses we built for them.
