Address by Anne Dudley Templeton Zimmerman
Baba Amte left his comfortable life as a wealthy Hindu lawyer to follow a personal calling, developing modern communities to help those with Hansen’s Disease (leprosy) and other so-called untouchables of his native India.
Rebelling against the “fast lane lifestyle” of his family, he sought out the poor, listening with mounting outrage of the stories of their plight, their destitution, and the scorn of which they were often the subject. He was awarded a United Nations Human Rights Award and attended a Christian college, where the seeds of the Christian value of care and service were first sown.
