The Foundation

After 18 years of Mohanji’s humanitarian work worldwide and with the aim of adding value to the world, Mohanji International Foundation was registered under the direct supervision of the Swiss Federal Government.
The overarching purpose of the Foundation is to create a better world. With the aim of alleviating poverty regardless of belief, ethnicity or origin, the Foundation fulfills social and humanitarian tasks by supporting the needy with donations of financial or material nature. The Foundation contributes to the protection of nature, the environment, and the well-being of all living beings through its own projects and the support of other non-profit organizations. In all its activities, the Foundation does not in any way strive for profit.
In addition to operating on certain projects in line with its vision, Mohanji International Foundation also acts as a central coordinating organisation that closely cooperates and allies with various non-profit organisations around the world, with a particular focus on Mohanji Foundations and ACT Foundations registered in various countries around the world. 
To provide more context, Mohanji Foundation NPOs are registered in 17 countries, with all their activities united by a simple motto – Adding Value to the world. The Mohanji organisations have set up peace centers in various cities around the world to conduct transformative programs and meditations, bringing together like-minded people and working towards making a positive difference in their lives, and in turn in their communities. The goal is to empower people to become stable, reliable, conscious, and compassionate enough to understand the importance of helping the needy, taking care of the environment and contributing to society.
ACT Foundation NPOs are registered in 9 countries with their primary focus on selfless charity service activities across the areas of food, clothing, shelter, healthcare and environment. ACT Foundation is especially proactive in situations of crisis and disaster relief and has done yeoman work in assisting those affected by the war in Ukraine, the socio-economic crisis in Sri Lanka, the earthquake in Turkey and Syria, and several other such cases. 
In its role as the central coordinating NPO, MIF is also involved in high level supervision of the activities of the associated NPOs of Mohanji Foundation through its board members. MIF also sets up policies and procedures that govern the overall operating framework for all Mohanji activities and spaces across the world. Furthermore, MIF acts as the custodian of key Intellectual Property of Mohanji.
