The Trust has been formed by people who have experienced contentment in themselves and trained to create a healthy, harmonious and peaceful life. We carry out a mission that the greatest leaders of all times, like the Christ, Mohammed, Krishna, Buddha, Mahavira set forth in their lives - the mission of creating a world of universal love and brotherhood, a world which lives like one caring family. It is for us to restore confidence and show the efficacy of the wholesome qualities in each individual and help them so as to create an environment of freedom.

As a trustee, one is dedicated to promote Peace, Love and Universal Brotherhood amongst all beings so that one brings forth one's true leadership qualities.

AMMANNI CHARITABLE TRUST® literally means "The one who serves selflessly" in Sanskrit. Our theme is 'One World One Family'. With our services through the mission made the AMMANNI CHARITABLE TRUST® to experience that :

  • Freedom in LIFE
  • Is about "Let it be" than "Make it be"
  • Is about blossoming by offering rather than withering through demanding
  • Is about Inclusion instead of Exclusion Is about loving universally instead of grabbing personally

AMMANNI CHARITABLE TRUST® trustees have experienced that all human beings and other living beings are one. Every person, at whatever professional level performs actions as an opportunity to serve the brothers and sisters of the world family. With the inclusion of not only human beings but also animal and plant life and with the realization of one's absolute responsibilities for all beings, life on earth will still be present for our children and grandchildren.

We have to realize, that the day is not far when all the people of world have to come together and form a code of conduct in order to save the entire planet from devastation and destruction. Therefore the seed of togetherness has to be sown some where.

With this realization we have formed AMMANNI CHARITABLE TRUST® and started our trust in order to make all people realize that all living beings on Earth are one and they should support each other as one loving family, forgetting all differences of castes, religion etc.,
