Families for Children Orphanage

$3,176 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 27 months
Hello, my name name is Bhakti, owner of Shanti Om, a yoga studio located in Portland Oregon. I have spent much of my life dedicated to joining the hands of Shanti Om with Families For Children, a special needs orphanage located in India

In India, there are approximately 20 million children who are orphans and in need of assistance. The Families for Children orphanage in Coimbatore is dedicated to supporting the most vulnerable of these children who were born with severe mental and physical disabilities; children most other orphanages turn away. Your contribution will provide critical support to help give these children an education, a community and a sense of belonging in the world.

Thanks to many generous souls, we have raised $545 for Families for Children Orphanage. Our goal is 10,000 which may seem like a lot but when you consider the costs of caring for over 350 children, it is not a whole lot. Please give if you can.. if you can't give, sharing the video is a great way to give others an opportunity to support these children and in turn makes us all good karma yogis :)

So much gratitude!
