Yoga and Vegan Food for Kids and Youth

AZAHAR Foundation is an international not-for-profit organization, founded by Yogeswari, that promotes peace building and cross-cultural communication through Yoga and the Arts supported by non-violent communication, youth-leadership, and other related methodologies. Current projects are in Cambodia, Rwanda and Ivory Coast.

This year, we have 9 ladies from AZAHAR Cambodia organization who are running for Peace during the ANGKOR WAT INTERNATIONAL HALF MARATHON
Support them as they will run the 10 km to raise money for our Free Vegan Food and Yoga for Kids and Youth which is part of our Peace Program!!!

The program offers our kids and youth access to yoga, meditation, arts and sports. We also want to provide some environmental workshops to let them know how they can be more conscious. Thanks to this program, we are able to see their talent in Yoga, and allow them to participate in the AZAHAR Yoga Teacher Training in the near future.
They also get a free vegan meal after each session to raise awareness about non-violence towards animals. We try as much as possible to get organic food and we are also planning to grow our own organic vegetables at our center.

Yoga class and vegan meal cost 20 dollars per month per youth (split between the yoga teacher salary and food). We now have 30 kids and 30 teenagers who have joined the program, but more are on the waiting list. Give them access to this amazing program in 2021 by supporting us!

Here are some of the kids while practicing yoga and meditation at our center in Siem Reap:
