“World over NGO’s have demonstrated that they play a significant part in bringing about social change for the betterment, development and progress of their society. We believe that it is the duty of NGO’s to guarantee that the Government responds to citizens’ concerns and solves their issues thereby helping the Government also to get a people friendly image. The main purpose of forming an NGO is to serve the underprivileged people who face scarcity of basic necessities like food, shelter, clothes, education, human rights, sanitation, and healthcare.
The Moto of Bharata Mata College is “ For God and Country’ making it a necessary moral duty for the Management, staff and students to do their bit to liberate subjugated populations from their despair and suffering.

Steve Goodier said “Money is not the only commodity that is fun to give. We can give time, we can give our expertise, we can give our love, or simply give a smile. What does that cost? The point is, none of us can ever run out of something worthwhile to give.”
