Mukti Volunteer Village is a volunteer based Canadian charity with one purpose – to empower others to volunteer their gifts and time to impact the lives of children in India.
Mukti means freedom. By joining our mission to freedom – you will move from being someone who cares and wants to help to someone who has a plan to act on their desire to help. Founded in 2013, we exist to get you there as we provide education to children with little or no access to education.
