A woman dying to give birth to life is one of life's cruelest ironies. A child dying before experiencing life is not just a tragedy but an injustice. Safe motherhood and a secure childhood should not only be a promise for the distant future but a fundamental right.


ARMMAN is a secular, India based nonprofit organization committed to improving the well being of pregnant mothers, newborn infants and children in the first five years of their life. The name ARMMAN (meaning a wish in Hindi) is an acronym for ADVANCING REDUCTION IN MORTALITY AND MORBIDITY OF MOTHERS, CHILDREN AND NEONATES. It also stands for the fervent wish that we members of ARMMAN share; that no mother, neonate, infant or child in India dies for want of care.
