Initiative
AMMA / Embracing the World

The hand-illustrated true story of the first Embracing the World project, and the vision behind everything we do.

Burgess COMMENTARY

Peter Burgess

The hand-illustrated true story of the first Embracing the World project, and the vision behind everything we do.

More than 25 years ago, the administrators of a local orphanage confessed to Amma that they were out of funds. They told Amma that before long, they would have no choice but to turn the children out on the street. Amma diverted the money that had been saved to build her ashram’s first prayer hall and used it to assume care of the orphans. With this, Embracing the World was born.

Like the orphanage, each of our projects has been initiated in response to the needs of the world’s people living in poverty who have personally shared their problems with Amma. The story of Embracing the World, as much as it is a chronicle of a rapidly expanding humanitarian movement, is also a story about the power of an idea – that each of has a responsibility to help those less fortunate. Ultimately, it is a story about what happened when one person decided to offer her life wholeheartedly for the sake of others.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
