the Institute for Indian Mother and Child

Join AMBOSS in our efforts to build
an elementary school in India!

A third of the Indian population lives below the poverty line, and many must make do with less than a dollar a day. About half of the adult population is illiterate. The majority of people living in rural areas do not have access to clean water, proper wastewater management, or electricity – not to mention schools or hospitals.

Help us break the vicious cycle of poor
education, poverty, and disease!

AMBOSS supports the Institute for Indian Mother and Child (IIMC), an Indian NGO that has successfully managed several similar projects in the past and with whom we maintain close personal relations. Together we are working on a joint project to construct an elementary school in West Bengal.

Since 1989, the IIMC has concentrated its efforts on providing local medical care, improving the education of children, and promoting financial independence, especially of women.

Why a school?

Several AMBOSS physicians visited India on many separate occasions to support the IIMC and its founder, Dr. Sujit K. Brahmochary, and provide medical care to those in need. The time they spent there and the incredible commitment of the IIMC’s employees and volunteers left a lasting, inspiring impression.

We fully endorse Dr. Sujit’s concept of sustainable development to assist the local population with education and committed medical care.
