Sri Mata Amritanandamayi unveils humanitarian project worth 50 crore in Conjunction with Civil 20 India

By: WE Staff | Wednesday, 18 January 2023

A 50 crore project has been started by Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma) by the Mata Amritanandamayi Math. The events will benefit the well-being of pregnant women who really are undernourished and those with disabilities. Work will be done in poor areas of India and other developing countries. The Ashram will collaborate closely with regional Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in an effort to significantly enhance the lives of its patrons. Amma also hopes to set this as an example of efficient and successful processes that other CSOs and governments around the globe may emulate in the future.

The declaration was made at the Civil 20 Steering Committee (C20) inaugural ceremony in India, which Amma chairs. The goal of C20 is to present the concerns of CSOs from all over the globe to the G20 Summit, which will actually happen in New Delhi in September. For the developed and developing economies of the world to discuss capital based on a global scale, the Group of Twenty (G20) is the preeminent international platform. The theme of the G20 this year, with India serving as the host nation, is vasudhaiva kuabakam, or "the world is one family."

This is a lucky occasion, Amma said. We've started a crusade to bring back the world's fading light. India has been given the chance to hold the G20 nations' chairmanship in this historic year. We have been assigned enormous responsibility by the Indian government and Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to successfully facilitate the Civil Society 20 process. I hope we can honour this effort in some way.

Any non-profit, voluntarily organized citizen group, whether on a local, national, or international scale, is referred to as a CSO. CSOs perform a range of services and humanitarian tasks, raise citizens' complaints to governments, monitor policies, and promote political engagement at the community level. They are task-oriented and motivated by people with a shared interests.

So, C20's primary responsibilities are to find solutions to people's problems in the social and economic spheres. Prior to the Summit, C20 will work with hundreds of CSOs around the world to advance sustainable development only with the goal of leaving no one behind while voicing important and shared issues. Amma emphasized that practical research must be done while also incorporating spiritual understanding and that humanity must cease destroying the natural world.

We should be able to deduce the significance of this based on the cues that the universe and nature are giving us, according to Amma. Only then could we be able to at a minimum partially uphold the vasudhaiva kuabakam concept. Humanity has the misconception that ecology is our subservient and unsympathetic servant and that we may thus treat her in whatever we choose. The truth, however, is that Environment is a single, cohesive body. Holding gatherings and summits, giving out prizes, and passing rules and regulations are insufficient if we truly desire sustainable development. The way people think needs to change. We can alter our environment if we can alter our mentality.

Tamil Nadu Governor RN Ravi had said in his speech at the opening that community involvement is crucial for any project's success and that C20 is playing a crucial role in ensuring that society's basic requirements are communicated to the G20 leaders. He added that because of the increasingly difficult difficulties the globe is currently facing, collective action is now required in order to survive.

The world is filled with enjoyable sensory experiences, but the globalist agenda is founded on the terror of military might rather than the love of people, he claimed. This needs to alter. The way we view ourselves, other people, and Mother Earth now all have to have a basic link at their heart. The entire globe is looking to India as the G20's host nation as a beacon of hope for the future. On this planet, we are all present. Mother Earth is the parent of all of us. This planet should not be used as a resource. It is for coexistence that is peaceful.

"Under the capable leadership of Amma, I'm sure C20 will develop useful suggestions, as Amma's feet remain constantly on the ground," he continued. And the G20 will gain a great deal from these suggestions for creating a joyful, peaceful, and harmonious world.

Sri M, the Chair of the Satsang Foundation, Sudha Murthy, the Participant of the Infosys Foundation, Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini, the Secretariat, as well as the Vivekananda Kendra, Kanyakumari, the Institutional Partner, are all members of India's C20.

The ceremony was attended by numerous notable dignitaries. It is hoped that the solutions developed by the C20 professional organizations will address the environmental issues the globe is now facing, according to Union Minister Anurag Thakur. V. Muraleedharan, Union Minister of State for External Affairs, added that Prime Minister Modi wants the G20 to include all elements of society, regardless of gender, age, or age range, and that this can be accomplished through C20.

Additionally, the State Public Education Minister of Kerala, V. Sivankutty, stated that CSOs are the most efficient way to reach all societal levels and that the G20 is a forum where the globe would come together to address today's concerns. A development strategy based on gender equality is a top priority, according to Amitabh Kant, a former CEO of NITI Aayog and India's Special Representative (Sherpa) at the G20. Women make up the majority of India's population.

Other speakers at the inaugural ceremony came from different parts of the world. They included Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce and philanthropist, T Denny Sanford, entrepreneur and beneficiary of an honorary doctorate from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, AH Maftuchan, member of the C20 Troika from Indonesia, and Alessandra Ni. They also included Shashi Tharoor, a member of parliament from India and a former under-secretary general of the United Nations.
