Oneness, besides being engaged in its mainstream activity of global awakening, is also assiduously associated with the creation of a new society, a new community, laying a foundation at the grass root level - the village. It also reaches out to the most marginalized cross-sections of society by enriching their lives through self empowerment and community development. Because India is 70% rural, to build India you need to build its villages. It is towards this end; Sri Amma Bhagavan is trying to create village communities with happy and fulfilled individuals and families. Hence the work for community development began.
Empowering Underprivileged is an initiative of ONENESS started in the year 2007 in the month of January, to reach out to the most marginalized cross-sections of society and enrich the lives of disadvantaged sections of the society through self-development, self-empowerment and community development. Through our programs we empower them to lead healthier, happier and fulfilled lives, thus integrating them into the mainstream of society.
"Happy individuals create a happy world" say Sri Amma Bhagavan. Most of the problems today, be it concerning an individual, a family or the world at large, is because man is basically unhappy. Unhappiness in different forms is at the root of all misery. When man is happy, the society that he creates naturally would envelope a sense of co-operation and sharing. On the other hand, out of unhappiness he creates an environment, which is detrimental to the well being of the community and the world. The happier you are, the more successful you become. The index of development in any community is happiness. Hence, Oneness focuses on individual growth which would ultimately lead to the development of the community, nation and the world at large.
