Who are we?Prafull Oorja is a registered charitable trust, through which a team of trained therapists work to make yoga and other holistic therapies accessible to children with special needs, and people living in rural villages and under-resourced communities.
Why are we fundraising?Prafull Oorja currently impacts approximately 500 special children on a weekly basis, and though the scope and demand for yoga therapy is constantly increasing, many cannot afford to fund yoga classes. In order for us to continue to grow and serve our amazingly special students, we need to raise funds for those who cannot afford yoga classes, materials, and props.
To facilitate our growth, we also need to continue to build a strong team and invest in our training and development programs so that we can effectively teach and train new teachers, parents, and care givers.
What do we plan to do with the funds?
We will hire a full-time training and development manager to work with schools and parents to make sure they are equipped to work with the children using yoga therapy.
We will develop audio and video training aides for schools and families to practice regularly. We will also develop our homework books and materials.
We will purchase yoga materials such as mats, eye pillows, singing bowls, and bolsters for our underprivileged students.We will sponsor schools and children who cannot afford the classes.
Any remaining funds will be used to provide resources (such as higher level training, alternative healing practices, materials, etc.) to our teachers who serve the children with love and empathy.
We are a start-up Charitable Foundation, and we do what we do because we believe this is our Dharma. We strive to follow the Yogic Culture and Path of Serving, Loving, Giving, and Realizing through Karma Yoga Seva, and Raja Yoga Yama/ Niyama/ Asana/ Pranayama.
