Sri Aurobindo Yoga Mandir is an ashram just outside of Kathmandu. It's a non profit organization and a home to more than 160 destitute children. Living here they go to school and are part of a big loving family. They sustain themselves through the sale of vegetables from their organic farm, natural medicine, handicrafts, and opening their doors to foreign travelers.
The Earthquake: Aftermath
After the earthquakes struck, the ashram is extremely grateful that no one was physically hurt, but the massive damages have created an unsafe environment for their community. Several buildings are now in desperate need of restoration or even complete reconstruction.
New children have already come as they have lost their family and homes in the natural catastrophe.
Our Relationship to the Ashram
We are a German/Danish couple, that just have cancelled the rest of our Nepal-India trip, in order to raise money for this community, which is in desperate need for financial help. Read more about us here.
Being in Nepal, when the earthquakes struck was terrifying. But we were very fortunate, as we stayed at this ashram and were cared for by its beautiful people. We stayed for a week and gained insight into their well functioning community.
In the last two decades this ashram has helped hundreds of people.
Now this community needs our help: Every donation to the ashram of Sri Aurobindo Yoga Mandir helps the wounds of the earthquake heal. For each donation more children, that are victims of the earthquake, can be welcomed into the family, giving them a bright future full of opportunities.
The ashram needs help, so that they can repair their buildings, buy a new watertank and expand their communtiy.
It is a small organization so every donation is important and makes a difference.
