Embracing The World Kenya

Mata Amritanandamayi, also known as Amma, is known throughout the world for her selfless love and compassion. Her entire life has been dedicated to alleviating the pain of the poor and those suffering physically and emotionally. Amma inspires, uplifts and transforms through her physical embrace, her spiritual wisdom and her worldwide volunteer social-service organization.
The Mata Amritanandamayi Math established in 1982 as a charitable trust with headquarters at Parayakadabu (also known as Amritapuri), Kerala, India. The trust runs many charitable institutions under the guidance of Her Holliness Matha Amritanandamayi, popularly known as Ammachi or Amma or “The Hugging Saint.” These humanitarian activities serve the most disadvantaged section of the society by providing development assistance, economic aid and educational facilities.

Embracing the World Kenya (an affiliation of M.A.Math Charitable Trust Kenya) aims at assisting the vulnerable population in Kenya through various humanitarian projects enlisted below, to meet each of their five basic needs – food, shelter, education, healthcare and livelihood.

Primary Day School - Amrita Center Kenya (Athi River)

The Primary Day School was opened in the year 2011 by the then Vice President of Kenya, (RT) H.E. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka. It is located in Athi River, Nairobi, Kenya and is designed to cater to vulnerable children, especially orphans and needy children from poor economic backgrounds by offering education, basic healthcare and free meals.

Around 220 children are educated for free each year, every year. Each classroom holds between 20 to 25 pupils at a time. 

The project has been self-sustainable through support from Corporates and Individual sponsorship.
