Welcome to AMMAVODI
Our society abounds in cases where women from all castes and communities suffer from discrimination. We see their plight and untold misery everyday. Yet, we turn a blind eye to their cause. Not that we lack compassion. Not that we do not have anything to offer. All we lack is the direction.
Through the divine intervention of His Holiness Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji, a home for destitute and helpless women has been shaped and is dedicated to the memory of His Mother Mata Jayalakshmi. Spread over a sprawling two acres of landscaped greenery, in Dindigal, near Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh, this facility was inaugurated on 14th October 2004, by His Excellency Mr. S.S. Barnala, Governor, Andhra Pradesh.
Amma Vodi, meaning Mother's Lap is a Social welfare project that exclusively addresses the needs of helpless, forsaken and poor women who cannot fend for themselves.
There may be Philanthropists and Social workers who work on similar lines and extend a little bit of help but adding divine dimension to the help offered and spiritual magnitude to the services rendered is possible to divine personalities like His Holiness Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda Swamiji only. Sri Swamiji who is considered among His devotees as an incarnation of Dattatreya is a Peetadhipathi with a difference. His outlook and vision crosses the limits of religion as well as political territories and embraces all facets of social life and divinifies every angle of human service. It is because of this special approach that Sri Swamiji has come out of His regular spiritual limitations and established this rare center of service dedicated to helpless and uncared women sector of the society.
The concept of Amma Vodi is to provide destitute women a chance to live like a family with all the members living in harmony, sharing their joys and sorrows. This labour of love wouldn't have of course been possible without the selfless contribution and sincere material support from people of all walks of life across continents... [More]
