“To every child: I dream of a world where you can laugh, dance, sing, learn, live in peace and be happy” Malala Yousafzai
Helping Hands for India is a charitable organization, managed by a dedicated team of volunteers, who are committed to providing educational opportunities and to promote well being to children in India.
We have built a school in the rural village of Pritamgarh, India, where yoga and meditation, play and outdoor education are included in the curriculum. Sansar Gyaan Pathshala, which means ‘World Knowledge Lessons’ is the name of the school. We have 300 children, from Kindergarten to Grade 8, coming every day!
Inspired by our teacher, Yogrishi Vishvketu, a group of yoga teachers came together in 2009 to give back to the children in the area of Rishikesh, India, where we had received so many blessings.
We are supported by the Anand Prakash Ashram in Rishikesh and the generosity of the Akhanda yoga family and friends.
