Ambai Sarvodaya Sangh

About Ambai Sarvodaya Sangh


          The very word "SARVODAYA "is invented by our father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi.  While he was travelling by train  in South Africa, he was thrown out off a train defaming him.   From this very point, his action, work all turned towards the upliftment of poorest of poor  people. The book "UNTO THE LAST" written by English Author John Ruskin inspired him. He introduced Spinning wheel. Thereafter it was named "CHARKHA". By this charka he produced Yarn by hand and,  with those yarn weaved cloth. He named the hand spun and woven cloth as "KHADI".

Gandhiji's aim was to show a way of earning for livelihood to unto the lost  rural people. With this sole objective, AKILA BHARATH CHARKA SANGH was established by him. And years passed, the Sangh decentralised state wise and district wise as the volume of work progressed. The Government of India, established "KHADI & VILLAGE INDUSTRIES COMMISSION" to give financial aids to those Sangh that are spread all over India.

AMBASAMUDRAM SARVODAYA SANGH is the directly aided KHADI AND VILLAGE INDUSTRIES COMMISSION institution that decentralized from Tamil Nadu Sarvodaya Sangh, Tiruppur, and further bifurcated from Tirunelveli Sarvodaya Sangh in the year 01.04.1977, with the sole objective of promoting Khadi Village Industries in the Rural areas around Ambasamudram Block, Tirunelveli district. The Sangh is Certified by Khadi Village Industries Commission in 1977 and availing Funds from KVIC for the implementation of various programs. The Sangh is registered under Registration Act and functioning under the Management of Managing Committee members comprising the workers themselves.
