Borderless Gandhi is an organisation working to promote Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings, values and philosophies through the means of art and social media. Borderless Gandhi was founded by Nilesh and Lene Makwana, who are supported by a team of volunteers and organisations.
The Borderless Gandhi project is aiming towards a series of events and exhibitions where Mahatma Gandhi is portrayed as a global icon of peace, equality and nonviolence. Gandhi and his work will be promoted through artistic reflections of his life, work and legacy, and in true spirit with Gandhi’s values and philosophies, the initiative is not tied to a certain country, community or religion.
2015 marked the official launch of the organisation, and every year since then there has been a focus on 2nd October, Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday and the United Nations International Day of Nonviolence.
