    ANANDWAN – Maharogi Sewa Samiti, Warora is a nonprofit organisation in the Chandrapur district of Maharashtra, India. It was established in 1949 to help socially disadvantaged people enhance their livelihood capabilities through self-discovery and empowering them to contribute to society. The internationally known human rights activist Baba Amte founded MSS, Warora to better the plight of the marginalized leprosy afflicted and people with disabilities through treatment, training and active inducement in self- managed communes. MSS, Warora has been a pioneer in medical treatment and rehabilitation of leprosy patients in the world. Till date, more than 2.6 million people have benefited from our services. Our work spans a wide spectrum of activities ranging from the provision of basic healthcare and rehabilitation, development of land and water resources, enhancement of income and sustainable livelihoods, imparting formal and vocational education and sensitization of youth on environmental and socio-economic issues. MSS, Warora strives to couple innovative tools and technology with these activities for environment-friendly means of coexistence. It is fast becoming a focal point from where the quintessence of new paradigms of social work and developmental activities is spreading far and wide. The institution has grown over the last six decades to become an internationally renowned institution and perhaps the largest community of leprosy afflicted and people with disabilities in the world. His legacy continues to this date through the various projects of MSS, Warora.

    HEMALKASA – The Lok Biradari Prakalp (LBP) was started on 23rd December 1973 by Baba Amte for the integrated development of the primitive tribe ‘Madia-Gonds’ in the Gadchiroli district of Maharashtra. The ‘Madia-Gond’ tribe lives in remote parts of the district, deep in the forests. Apart from the dangers of living in the wild, where animal attacks are very common, malaria and cholera epidemics were also a frequent occurrence. The Madia-Gonds did not have access to basic healthcare facilities which made the situation even worse. Dr. Prakash Amte and his wife Dr. Mandakini Amte volunteered to work among the Madias. Gradually building trust with the tribe and providing free healthcare assistance and basic education to their children, Lok Biradari Prakalp has come a long way. Today, with a multi-speciality hospital, a hostel school which has created engineers and doctors and livelihood opportunities for the tribes, LBP has got the Madia-Gonds into the mainstream. Dr. Prakash Amte saved the wild animals from man’s cruelty by starting the ‘Animal Ark’, an animal orphanage that started with an orphaned baby monkey and has now blossomed into a home for leopards, snakes, hyenas. At one point the shelter also had a lion.

    SOMNATH – Baba Amte established Somnath in 1967 on 1200 acres of land allotted by the Govt. of Maharashtra in the Tadoba buffer zone to rehabilitate leprosy afflicted patients from Anandwan. As a result, agriculture and other livelihood opportunities were set up at Somnath to facilitate employment for the rehabilitated individuals. Baba hoped to make every village sustainable and every farmer’s life easier. Today, Somnath is our agricultural backbone and is often called as the ‘Food Bowl of MSS, Warora’. With a focus on Agrarian development, Somnath has successfully executed various environmental and water conservation initiatives. Besides, a check dam constructed with waste rubber tyres and plastic is one of our most successful initiatives towards becoming environmentally sustainable. In addition, a few man made lakes have been dug here. Every year in the month of May, we conduct our annual ‘Shramsanskar Chavni’, a 10 day long event that aims to inculcate and instill important values like work ethics, punctuality, time management, teamwork etc. in the campers. This camp is very popular, attracting more than 500 people every year.
