About Ramabai Mukti Mission
Wonderfully, the Ramabai Mukti Mission has had indigenous roots from the start. It all began in 1889 when Pandita Ramabai, an extraordinarily brilliant, Indian woman, founded Mukti. Calcutta University conferred on her the exceptional title of pandita for her academic achievements. After many years of searching for truth, she personally trusted in Jesus Christ as her Savior and Lord. She became His servant, pioneering pathways of hope for broken women and orphaned children.
In Mukti’s Centennial year, the Indian government acknowledged Ramabai’s historic contributions as a reformer and leader by issuing a commemorative postage stamp featuring her and the Ramabai Mukti Mission.
And, although it was founded in the East, Mukti has had from its very beginning an active partnership with the West. Council's provides prayer and financial support, along with training and sending volunteer workers to serve to India.
What parent doesn’t desire to mold their children’s lives for the child’s best? This is Mukti’s heartbeat. The most tragic victims of suffocating poverty—and the most helpless—are the children. While India fast develops on the global technological and economic scene, it is home to hundreds of millions who live below India’s poverty line.
“Christ-centered homes where destitute women and children—irrespective of their background—are accepted, cared for, transformed, and empowered to be salt and light in the society.” This is Mukti’s purpose statement. We provide care, food, and housing for the ‘forgotten’ with no strings attached, regardless of people’s past, race, religion, or caste.
Mukti Mission is moving towards financial independence. Towards this goal, the Council's partner with Mukti on a series of Business as Mission projects. This modern, commercial complex, provides ongoing funds for expanding the reach of Mukti to the poor and needy.
