MSS was started by Baba Amte and his family in 1949. The Amte family continues to provide medical and administrative services. But if you ask the Amtes, they point out that an organization that helps so many people is only possible with the collective effort of hundreds, if not thousands of people. In this section, we explore some of the leaders, friends, and supporters of MSS. Over time, we will add profile others at MSS: kids in the Anand blind and deaf school, leprosy survivors, rural youth, and senior citizens.
The Amte Family
Maharogi Sewa Samiti was founded by legendary peacemaker, Baba Amte. Mentored by Gandhi-ji, Tagore, and Vinoba Bhave, and shaped by India's freedom struggle, Baba Amte, now in his nineties, continues to inspire Indians and people across the world, with his ideas of peace, justice, and non-violence.

Now the third generation of Amtes -ú Dr. Digant (shown in photo to the right), Aniket, and Kaustubh úare doing their part.
