Our Chancellor, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, Amma places paramount importance to sustainable development touching upon all aspects of human lives. Amma says “In our effort for Sustainable Development, we should not forget that it is by strengthening people at the base of the pyramid that the entire edifice of the society becomes healthy and strong”. In this regard, Amma adopted 108 villages across India under the Amrita Serve program to usher sustainable practices and teach villagers the skills they need to live in communities that are prosperous and self-reliant. With a unique vision to teach villagers the skills they need to lead self-reliant and prosperous lives, Amma also launched a unique academic program called Live in Labs®.
Through the flagship program called Live-in-Labs®, Amrita is working towards providing sustainable solutions even to the most vulnerable communities. With a pan India footprint, the program has already reached 21 states touching the lives of 60,000 villagers.
A mobile application designed and developed by Amrita Centre for Wireless Networks and Applications, the Empower Community Mobile App, helps to coordinate various developmental activities and monitor and track the progress of various community members in villages.
