About Us

We began as Swami Arupananda Mission (SAM) in the year 1990 with our focus on health interventions and Education. With time, we felt the need of working on a more holistic basis with issues relating to environment and people and Arupa Mission Research Foundation was established (2nd of February 1995) and the focus was on empowerment of vulnerable people, health, education, environment (renewable energy, environment awareness) issues and awareness, livelihoods amongst more. On the 21st of September 1998 we registered under the Trust Act (Registration Number:1729). Our focus then too was on health, education, environment, empowerment (differently abled, women, and children), livelihoods (ICTs, animal husbandry, marketing linkages etc.) and later disaster management. In 2006-2007 AMRF registered under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) act 1976 (registration number: 104830210, Nature: Social), giving us scope to partner with various International and National funding organizations.

Our scope of work extended to climate change and environment (renewable energy) interventions in remote corners of India, livelihoods, organisation development, education, health, audio-visual documentation, child development and protection projects, women empowerment and gender disaster management, rescue relief and resettlement during floods, WASH, strategic communication, Corporate Social Responsibility etc. Our focus has also been on research, capacity building and training, organization development. We have been working with children, women, transgender, tribes and vulnerable communities in different parts of the country through a dedicated in house team of experts as well as external consultants who specialize in different sectors. We are connected to a group of highly professional people in the socio-economic and environment sectors.

We work in tribal, rural, peri-urban and urban settings and provide high quality professional expertise in terms of knowledge, research, advisory services, project management, implementation and strategic communication, policy and advocacy, IEC, to help achieve sustainable development and catalyze reaching out to millennium development goals. Our partners start with the community and then NGOs, CBOs, bilateral and multilateral organizations, research institutions, companies and the Government
