Amarok Society

Amarok Society is an international Canadian registered charity operating in South Asia. It works with local, partner NGOs (non-governmental organizations) to deliver education programs of its own design to the poor, .Amarok is a result-oriented charity seeking long-term, practical outcomes by direct means.

The Society's mission is to teach mothers to teach families. The rationale being that If you teach a mother, you teach a family. If you teach five mothers, you teach a neighbourhood and so on.

Amarok Society goes where no one else goes to do what no one else does. With its partner organization, Baridhara Mohila Samobaya Samity, the organization takes young mothers who, by poverty and social and religious convention have been denied any education themselves, and transforms the mothers into active providers of education for their families and neighbourhoods. Amarok Society harnesses and enhances the power of motherhood to the benefit of all humanity. As one mother, a day labourer at construction sites, says: "I can’t afford to send my children to school. My becoming their teacher is the solution to their future."

I think this is a wonderful project and I continue to talk to Tanyss Munro about the fund raiser I'm working on in Edmonton -- and once I have enough committments I will put the project on Wikieducator as suggested by Nellie and Randy Fisher of Wikieducator. This project deserves support. Jo Ann

>Dear Nellie - Namaste! According to Wikipedia, the name "amarok" or "amaroq" refers in the literal sense to the Inuktitut word for "wolf." There are also other meanings: the brand name for the universally portable music player software and the album by Mike Oldfield both have the name "amarok." So perhaps this knowledge may bring further discussion...

Thank you for that.

Better music than 'wolf' here!

A wolf is known for its hunger, as the Indian folk tales speak about. May be that this society adds to the appetite for charity and service.

Hello everyone, Can we you support me to run a school for poor family children for their family peace? We need to work hard. If We can convince the parents and bring their chldren to school, we can start educating both parents and children; then there'd be peace in their families, Poverty has made them unrest. So there's always fighting, quarrelling, young ones have become the victims. I think this is the burning issue of our rural area.

Namaste All,

What does Amarok mean? Knowledge of it would help start discussion.
