AMURTEL Projects

AMURTEL has projects in countries around the world. Our volunteers work with women and children struggling to survive by providing services including education, medical care, options for food security such as training in improved farming techniques, micro credit, self-help groups, and literacy training to help women become financially stable. Our approach is to partner with and empower those we work with, encouraging self-initative and self-determination. We also provide immediate relief to families in the form of food, water, and medical care after disasters.

  • AMURTEL designed and built Solar Outreach System (SOS) trailers that were sent to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit in the fall of 2017. These units were used in low-income areas that had no power and provided the communities with a way to recharge cell phones, laptops, and other small appliances as well as purifying 600 gallons of water a day. Four other SOS units were built but kept stateside after power was restored to the Island.
  • AMURTEL supports programs that have helped over 1000 teenage girls develop skills and healthy options to get out of poverty, supports 100 women with Micro Credit, pays the salaries of community organizers to run the aforementioned along with organizing Self-Help groups for over 1000 women living in unrelenting poverty. We provide support for a children’s home of 28 children, ranging in age from 2 weeks to 12 years, and three schools with a combined total of 850 students.
  • In India, AMURTEL supports schools and homes for girls in rural West Bengal in an area considered one of the poorest within India. We are also working to build a college for girls in this area, as education is one of the most effective ways to help girls and children break the cycle of poverty too many are born into. We are also supporting the construction of a hospital in Kolkata that will have a special focus on women’s health issues.
