Holistic education cares for a child's physical, mental and emotional development.

Your contribution provides meals, healthcare, uniforms, transport, school supplies, hygiene, buildings, and develops surrounding communities. 

We stretch your money to the MAX! More than 95% goes directly to the programs.

When we educate our children, we empower our communities. We believe that education is a universal right that can help break the cycles of poverty, disease and social inequity. It empowers children with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to shape a better future for themselves, their communities and the world!

It all began in 1981 when Sri Sri Ravi Shankar noticed children of construction workers playing in the dust while the Art of Living center was being built.

Sri Sri observed these children had no access to education.  Basic lessons, healthcare and free healthy food was provided to the children. With support from donors like you, we now have over 420 schools all over India serving more than 43,000 kids. When we educate our children, we empower our communities. We believe that education is a universal right that can help break the cycles of poverty, disease and social inequity. It empowers children with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to shape a better future for themselves, their communities and the world.  Join us (and the world) in making the world a better place, starting with one child at a time.

"Life is sacred, Celebrate Life, Care for others and share whatever you have with those less fortunate. Broaden your vision, for the whole world Belongs to you.” - SRI SRI RAVI SHANKAR

Slums

Drugs

Caught in the vast disparity between the urban and slum.. drugs, alcohol, tobacco  are more readily available than books, and provide an illusory escape for mentally and physically abused children. How will your money  help the world's largest slum?

 

Rural Areas

Labor

Children work as domestic help, as farm labor, or care for their younger siblings without going to school. How are the resources that you fund for,  help the villagers?  

Tribal Regions

violence

Remote areas that have no roads or electricity, fraught with naxal activity.  Children are more familiar with guns than soap! How will your contribution help this section of the society?
