Ananda Foundation was founded in 1993 by Adeline Kanowitz at the age of eighty-seven. Adeline traveled extensively throughout the world during her lifetime and shared a deep concern and compassion for the welfare of the poor, especially children.

Ananda Foundation has helped women, children, and communities through projects in fourteen countries. Projects include:

  • a children’s shelter in Bangladesh
  • prosthetic limbs and mobility aids for children and adults in villages of Nicaragua and Honduras,
  • supplementary learning centers for dalit children in India,
  • increasing access to water by building community wells
  • improving sanitation by building latrines (toilets)
  • an organic farm for inner city youth
  • seeds and fertilizer for villages in Malawi
  • a feeding center for Grannies and HIV orphans
  • small business development for women,
  • a computer center for orphans in Peru,
  • educational scholarships for HIV affected children in Ethiopia.

Adeline's legacy continues through programs supported by Ananda Foundation and carried out by her daughter and granddaughter. We believe her spirit lives on through the lives of people that are given hope.
