About Us

Who we are ?

Athencottasan Muthamizh Kazhagam (AMK) is a National Level Non – Governmental Organization (NGO), actively involving in social and developmental services since 1970. The organization was started with a vision of providing social security to the marginalized communities and creating access to basic welfare schemes and services to the disadvantaged section of the society. The seed for this noble venture was sown by Pulavar (Poet) T. Retnaswamy, a retired teacher, who named the organization after his mentor Pulavar Athencottasan. Though “Health for All” was the motto during its formation,now the organization is addressing varied and multi dimensional problems confronting the poor and the marginalized people. 47 years of dedicated service has shaped us into a model NGO, deep rooted in community development and we are on a forward march with the support and co-operation of Government officials, bankers and other stakeholders.

The awards and appreciations we received from Central and State Governments and from International Organizations are proofs of our committed service to humanity.

Vision

AMK envisions a society where children, youth, women and senior citizens have improved quality of life in an environment of participation, gender equality and good governance with easy access to basic needs
