Often we tend to see women honouring the kitchen and just maintaining the decorum of the household activities. But today, we are going to introduce you to a lady who has broken all these boundaries and has been achieving great success in life.
Amita Marwah, a triple martial art expert is a true example of a social influencer of modern India. Changing the perspective and outlook of slum dwelling into something inspirational and worthy is perhaps a task that is among the toughest, yet she achieved it. Born on December 25th 1977 in Jamnagar, Gujrat, Amita was never an ordinary Girl.
She belongs to a military background. Her father was in the Indian Navy, and her uncle was in the Indian Army. She has taken her father as her inspiration since the beginning. He was a part of both Indo Pakistan War of 1965 and 1971.
Amita’s Mother owned a salon during the Khalistaani Movement in Amritsar. Threats were given to her to shut down her salon but she was courageous enough to always stand up for her work and herself.
Her growing years had shaped her into a very strong-willed and outspoken individual. With three black belts in Taekwondo, Tang soo do and Chi Kwang do and expert-level knowledge in other forms of Martial arts like Kickboxing, Amita always believed that her knowledge should be used in helping others rather than being a money cruncher.
The classes are located in a deprived community, who belong to the lowest rung of society comprising of vendors, porter, sweepers, rickshaw pullers, daily laborers, hawkers.
Children from these families lead a carefree life spending the day wandering about streets and market places and odd places sometimes looking for a job or fending for themselves by means of antisocial activities.
The initiative aims to transform the lives of such children by empowering them with the tool called Extra-curriculmum activities.
Amita Marwah Activity Team is a registred society by Department of Industries and Commerce Haryana.
Society Registration Number – 00698
Address: Sector 4, Panchkula
As an educationist, she lives by an earnest belief that the most powerful tool to transform the society is education. By education she does not mean books rather she believes that education mostly occurs beyond the classrooms and saw a dream to change the lives of deprived society with the initiative, AMAT. The foremost charge of every visionary is to identify the true potential of an individual and that’s what she did. It is the biggest stepping stone yet a right of every individual ‘to be known by their talent’.
There are millions in the world with full of dreams and visions but lucky are those who get a chance to fulfill them. She followed the path of the Almighty and defined her own track. With a bunch of thorns a hand full of stones she walked barefoot on the roads of success.
Our well established society in Panchkula, AMAT has redefined the definition of education par excellence with the modern approach and her philosophy: ‘Good will and will to do good’. She took the modern holistic concept of education to a whole new level and established AMAT.
With all the available resources, blessings of the Almighty and GMCKS, she makes every possible effort to bring out the future leaders. The philosophy of AMAT, “Good will and will to do good” has always motivated her to live by the holistic modern education in its true sense by focusing on talents and life skills.
Presently, AMAT is working for the slum areas of Tricity. AMAT wishes to reach a higher population by imparting knowledge and offering opportunities to the various deprived section of society. We dream to bring more Philanthropists to our team to ensure no deserving individual is left behind.
