Loving the Discarded & Neglected

Divyanagari Project

Loving - brahma kumaris | official

No doubt the concept of social service brings relief to the people suffering from one or the other social evil & ailment. The Brahma Kumaris consider all human beings as children of the same God Father and as such entitled to equal rights of a respectable living. For this purpose, we had initiated the ‘Divya-Nagri Project’, which is aimed at not just material and external change in living standards of the children and families of the poor, neglected people of the slums, but also a qualitative change in their approach and attitude and adoption of values and spiritual learning, which becomes an integral part of their working life.

The ‘Divya-Nagri Project’ attempts to bring qualitative reforms by practically educating them in cleanliness, education, adult literacy, skills training, educational excursions, celebrations of festivals, etc.

The Project is running successfully
in 21 cities of India

This project is gaining global attention and has attracted and inspired government organization (State Bank of India and Bank of Baroda), companies (CERA) and thousands of people in joining hands with this project and help us transform “a slum” into “a divine locality” (Divya Nagari). We invite you also to join us in this endeavor of helping mankind.

The Divya Nagari gives all to make their life healthy, informed and normally enjoyable

Swachhta Hi Sewa

Mahatma Gandhi had dreamt of his motherland not as just free from a foreign dominion but which must also be clean and developed. He wished every Indian to have a firm resolve “I will initiate the quest for cleanliness with myself, my family, my locality, my village, and my workplace.” The whole hearted dedication that is reflected in this resolve also finds its expression in what the Brahma Kumaris have been doing all these years.
The Brahma Kumaris believe that cleanliness begins not with one’s external surroundings but one needs to clean his/ her inner self. Purity is perhaps the most significant virtue and factor in the BK philosophy. In fact Brahma Kumaris concept has been quite comprehensive and it includes not just the purity of thought and cleanliness of one’s surroundings but it also promotes ecological biodiversity and uses holistic ways of controlling degradation of our soil. No wonder that their project of ‘Clean the Mind & Green the Earth’ has been so popular and effective both in cleanliness and maintaining ecological balance around.

The Swachhta Mission, re-launched as ‘Swachhta Hi Sewa’ on September 15, 2018, is not just a campaign but it is a Jan-Andolan – a Mission of each and every Indian which is taken as a call for freedom from the daily apathy and disease from the burden littered all around us. This is also the nation’s sincere homage to the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi

Brahma Kumaris Youth at the UN

In 2007, Brahma Kumaris brought a small group of young BK women to New York to attend the annual Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) at UN Headquarters. Following the conference, these young women from India, Mexico, South Africa, UK, and USA were inspired to do something for women with the belief that true empowerment involves inner growth and development – changing our state of mind, more than our state of affairs – since the greatest limitations are the ones we put on ourselves.

Invest in Youth, Sustain the World - Commonwealth Youth Forum 2009

A delegation of five young adults from Brahma Kumaris was invited to facilitate and contribute to plenary and thematic workshops on Climate Change, Economic Growth, Sustainable Livelihoods, Youth Involvement in Decision Making and Peace Building. Brahma Kumaris was part of the youth committee the team that organized the youth section of the Parliament of the World’s Religions 2009, in Melbourne, Australia.
‘You First’ was the other project designed by young people to encourage individuals to get in touch with their positive potential, positive values, and practical expression. It is about relationships – my relationship with myself, and then my relationships with others.
