Manavata means Humanity in Sanskrit - the human virtue of tending and befriending others through love, kindness and social intelligence. It is from this very spirit that 'Manavata', a voluntary, not-for-profit, humanitarian organization, was born over two decades ago, with a mission to create a Healthy, Happy and Harmonious (3H) world. Conceived and driven by young, entrepreneur and social agent Srinivasa Alluri’s vision, Manavata spreads 3H consciousness through each volunteer, each standing for a selfless cause, and setting an example.What began as a seed has grown into a large tree, providing its abundance and shade to many. Today, Manavata runs several social initiatives in health, education, environment and humanitarian aid worldwide. Apart from implementing initiatives on its own, Manavata provides a platform for individuals and organizations to take the 3H initiatives forward. With over 8000 volunteers and growing, 57 chapters in six countries, registered charity in India, UK and USA, activities that encompass Tree Plantation, Natural Farming, Humanitarian Aid, Value Based Education, Child care, Blood donation, Healthy Living and Self-employment Training, Manavata’s relentless work over the past two decades has been awarded with a special consultative status at the United Nations ECOSOC in 2012.
