Ambedkar Association of North America

Educate, Agitate, and Organize
AANA is guided by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s lifelong work and vision to uplift the downtrodden through education. Education provides the suppressed an opportunity to escape their poverty, experience a better quality of life, and have a voice in their communities. AANA also makes it its mission to spread Buddha’s message of peace and kindness to humanity through cultural, educational, social and economic activities among the South Asian Diaspora in North America.


Education can have an immense impact on a society. We actively work with the students from struggling communities to provide them with resources (including scholarships) to help them achieve their educational goals.

Laptop Donation

We donate laptops to underprivileged students, study circles, spiritual communities, and local libraries in India. This essential technology helps ensure quality of education by providing access to digital resources and virtual learning.

COVID-19 Relief Program

We collaborate with organizations in India and USA to provide COVID-19 aid.

Women Empowerment

We help organize interactive workshops empowering women and children against sexual violence.

AANA’s International Award

The international award honors exceptional community work in social and/or economical change. It is awarded to those who have shown devotion to continuing the mission of Dr. B R Ambedkar, Mahatma Phule, Savitribai Phule, and Gautama Buddha.

Annual Retreat

The annual retreat is an Ambedkarite 3-day get-together to celebrate Buddha, Mahatma Phule, & Dr. Ambedkar Jayanti. This retreat helps us bring together all of our community members.

Helping Today. Helping Tomorrow

Ambedkar Association of North America (AANA) was formed in the year 2008 with the aim to uplift the lives of people who belong to the underprivileged castes in India. It is a registered non-profit, charitable, and cultural organization that follows Dr. Ambedkar’s message to Educate, Agitate, and Organize. Our members primarily come from the Bahujan community in India and are committed to a vision of a world free from caste apartheid, religious intolerance, and injustice. We work with all Ambedkarite Americans to achieve dignity and justice through organizing, policy innovation, transformative education, and cultural programming.
