Join AMBOSS in our efforts to build an elementary school in India!
A third of the Indian population lives below the poverty line, many having to 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 an Indian NGO, the Institute for Indian Mother and Child (IIMC), which has successfully managed several similar projects in the past and with whom we maintain close personal relations. We are planning a joint project with the IIMC to construct an elementary school in West Bengal.
The IIMC has been committed to helping the people in one of the poorest regions of India since 1989. Its efforts concentrate on providing local medical care, improving the education of children, and promoting financial independence, especially of women.
Why a school?
Several physicians working for AMBOSS have visited India on many separate occasions and have supported the IIMC and its founder, Dr. Sujit K. Brahmochary, in providing medical care to the those in need. The time they spend there and the incredible commitment of the IIMC’s employees and volunteers left a lasting impression that inspired the our team.
We fully endorse Dr. Sujit’s concept of sustainable development, which assists the local population in helping itself through education and committed medical care. Our personal relationship with the IIMC is the foundation of our firm trust in the implementation of this project and that is why AMBOSS wholly supports the IIMC.
