Akila Bharatha Mahila Seva Samaja (ABMSS) was set up in the year 1993 in Bangalore to promote the social causes of child and women welfare. Over the years, the organization has morphed from a catalyst, supporter, promoter and sponsor for many causes.

Since 2013, the organization went on to add cleft lip and palate treatment as one of its major programmes under the generous support of Deutsche Cleft Kinderhilfe e.V., Germany and many other local donors in India. It started with just two projects in Coorg and Mysore and has now grown into a pan India presence.

Apart from cleft lip and palate, the organization also supports awareness work in rural areas; education of doctors and medical personnel involved in supporting the charitable cause; speech and myo-functional therapy; and supplementing of vitamin and minerals to pregnant women and malnourished children.
