Mukti was founded in 1889 in India, where it is known as Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission, after its founder Pandita Ramabai and the Marathi word ‘mukti’ which means freedom, liberation and salvation.
Mukti is a Christian mission which is taking action to bring hope, and a positive future, to girls and women in India. Our aim is to change lives through a range of initiatives that demonstrate, in a practical way, the love of Jesus Christ to this mainly Hindu and Muslim nation.
Primarily, we provide secure, Christian homes for destitute women and children. Here, they find love, care and acceptance regardless of their backgrounds. And for some, the first home they have ever had in their lives.
Mukti also supports the local community through:
- a hospital and mobile medical clinic
- a farm
- community development projects
- schools and vocational training

The aim is to promote security, stability and health. To help communities develop the services and facilities they need. To encourage self-sufficiency and give women the skills to live confident, independent lives.
The result is women who return to their communities transformed and empowered to break the cycle of poverty and desperation.
For 120 years, Mukti Mission has been caring for Indian woman and girls from its base at Kedgaon near Pune, in Maharashtra State.
Now, you have the chance to be a part of this exciting future.
