Foundation

Teaching Tomorrow’s Teachers Today
Together we can change lives.

Yoga Mission believes in the all-round development of the child irrespective of caste, gender, creed or colour. Founded in 2009, our Trust makes free high quality education available to the poorest children in India since we believe everybody has an equal right to education!

According to a recent UNESCO report “90% of underprivileged children in India even after 4 years of state school education remain illiterate”.

Yoga Mission is a private humanitarian organization, relying solely on the support of individuals who fund the following programs and initiatives:

Programs

Ethical education for underprivileged children
The word “educe” means to bring out which is the fundamental basis of the ethical education provided here.

We offer free nursery class up to Masters level from 3-8 PM except Sunday. The holistic curriculum includes Computer Science, Maths, English and the ancient Indian Sanskrit.

Celebrating rich, ancient culture
We think it’s important that the children learn about their history and culture. Ancient Indian Vedic culture teaches self-awareness as a way to understand the world around you. It provides a holistic education that enables children to grow up to be the balanced and responsible citizens.

We educate girls. We employ women.
If women are to be empowered and their prospects improved they must be educated. We provide a safe learning environment for girls and boys. Over 90% of our teachers are local women providing a safe classroom environment for girls and offering accessible role models. We train and employ local teachers. We are proud that more than half of our teachers were once our students.

What We Do

We support 29 boys from difficult backgrounds in our boarding school – including daily Meditation and Yoga and Study of the Vedas.

We also provide classes for 150 day students to develop English, Computer and Mathematical literacy.

Yet so much needs to be done.

There is a desperate need for boarding accommodation.

We currently have space for only 29 boy, but we have a further 50 on the waiting list.

Over the next few years we plan to expand the boarding facilities to accommodate 250 children.

We are also ready to start a nursery and kindergarten for 45 three-year-old children to provide basic literacy so that they can join the Indian State System.
