Group Marriages

Every few years, the Sanjeevini Trust organizes group marriages.  In the most recent group marriage, 61 Poor couples were married.  This helps poor people avoid starting their lives together with burdensome debts resulting from the very high cost of traditional marriages. In a group marriage, the costs are much lower and are paid for by the Trust - so the couples can start their lives debt free.


In that group marriage, there were 10,000 guests who were all fed by the Sanjeevini Trust. Gnanmithra worked with the government of Karnataka to provide each couple with a gift of 50,000 Rupees in a joint banking account, so they could get a good start in their lives.
