In 1903, a group of concerned Australians joined together to support the work of Ramabai Mukti Mission to offer shelter, access to food and water, health care and education to children and women made destitute by famine in India.
As the work of the Mission grew, so did the number of Australians committed to supporting its work. An Australian Council was formed, and the bonds of partnership grew. Throughout the 1900’s, more and more Australians become involved in the work of the Mission – whether supporting the Mission’s work from Australia through donations, or serving at the Mission itself in India. Several of the Mission’s Directors were Australians.
In 2001 the Australian Council became incorporated as Ramabai Mukti Mission Australia Inc, then later changed its name to Mukti Australia Inc in 2009.
Today, under the leadership of its National Director Glenda de Jager, Mukti Australia has grown into an impressive network of employees, area representatives, volunteers and supporters across every state in Australia – all united by our commitment to see vulnerable women and children on the Indian subcontinent and in Sri Lanka, transformed and empowered to pursue lives of hope and purpose.
