Art of Living London is committed to serving the London community through our powerful yoga, breath and meditation workshops for the general public and our projects that support community groups in need. One example of this is our partnership with Youth Opportunities Unlimited, The Schulich School of Medicine at the University of Western Ontario and the London Health Sciences Center to give homeless youth an opportunity to heal trauma from the past and learn practical tools that have been show to reduce impulsiveness, build emotional resiliency, and improve physical, mental, and emotional health. We participate in the Million Tree Challenge with Reforest London every year where we have planted hundreds of trees, and offer free meditation sessions every Tuesday at the Central Library.
Serving London is our number one priority. We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful city with so much opportunity that we have opened our focus to help others with in and outside of our city that do not have the same opportunities. Yogathon will donate the funds raised to Care for Children, an organization that provides holistic education to underprivileged children. In addition to this the parents of the children are either provided with an employment with a living wage or trained so that they may earn enough income for the family with out relying on the children. This enables the children to have an opportunity to go to school.
Your donation of $25 or more will provide holistic education to care for the children’s physical mental and emotional development. Your contribution provides meals, healthcare, uniforms, transport, school supplies, hygiene, buildings, and develops the surrounding communities. We stretch your donation to the maximum! More than 95% of the donation goes directly to the programs.
When we educate children we empower their communities, and our sense of community broadens. Education is a universal right of every human being and can help break the cycle of poverty, disease, and social inequality. Education equips children with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to shape a better future for themselves, their communities and the world! We organize visits to these schools in India and encourage you to come an see for yourself the incredible difference your donations make!
