The Eternal Gandhi Museum Houston (EGMH) is creating a world-class cultural and educational museum dedicated to preserving and promoting Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy of nonviolent conflict resolution by cultivating universal values of Truth, Nonviolence, Peace, Love, and Service.

Mahatma Gandhi spent 21 years in South Africa, where he developed his political views, ethics, and politics.
Without a doubt, the discrimination and violence experienced Gandhi Experienced in South Africa set him on a lifelong path. The shy young lawyer unwilling to allow bigotry and injustice to thrive had found his passion. But he refused to counter violence with violence.
Inspired by the Bhagavad Gita and filled with words of Henry David Thoreau, Gandhi vowed to resist unjust British laws simply refusing to obey. Protests, marches and burning of registration certificates soon followed. He would be beaten and arrested for his actions, but the seeds of “Satyagraha”, nonviolent conflict resolution were quickly sown across South Africa and the world.
The total construction budget for EGMH is $10 million, of which we have raised $7.3 million.
