Since April 2019, you have helped me raise $8,581 dollars in my deceased father's name, Mohammad Wajed Hussain, who sincerely believed in the welfare of a girls life and her education. My wish is to continue raising money on his behalf because he would have wanted to give these girls a second chance.
Mission is to combat human trafficking and sexual exploitation by empowering women and children around the globe through education and entrepreneurial opportunities.
Belief is that no situation is beyond hope. As India is the birthplace of yoga, we believe it is our duty to give back to a culture that has given the international yoga community so much.
