“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” This simple proverb holds large meaning. Ammucare strives by this philosophy. We do not believe in just extending charity. This sort of giving breeds dependency. Instead, we believe in handing out resources that will help them build their lives for the coming tomorrow. Ammucare’s approach thus is not to cover a needy person’s need for the day but rather to secure him for life. Only then can our work have meaning. Be it school improvement programmes, Aangans, Women’s skill development initiative, all projects under ACT are designed with the longevity of benefit for the marginalised in mind. Hence Ammucare believes and persistently works for charity that encourages growth rather than one that fuels dependency.
