About Helping Hands for India
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.
Rooted in our shared knowledge, we envision a future where ancient wisdom and modern ideas work to create a self-sustaining world.
Guided by our Akhanda Yoga heritage, we provide education for children in rural India while fostering a community of social, economic and environmental wellbeing.
