Gandhi Foundation

The Gandhi Foundation was set up in 1983 to spread knowledge of the philosophy and teaching of Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) in Britain.

The purpose of the Foundation is to apply this teaching to some of the major concerns of our times: violence, social injustice, oppression, racial discrimination, destruction of the environment, economic inequality, exploitation of animals, the arms trade and war. Thus it maintains a relevant witness as a spur to nonviolent action to transform our contemporary world.

The Gandhi Foundation has an office in Kingsley Hall Community Centre in East London where Gandhi stayed in 1931.
