Paving Way to Freedom


Yoga for Happiness Academy has been volunteering for the past 10 years for the cause of the children. It donates part of all sale proceeds to BBA, a Non-Profit (www.bba.org.in), which works for the freedom and education of enslaved children.


Its founder, Kailash Satyarthi, won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.


So your investment in your "inner freedom" through these programs helps unlock the "outer freedom" of innocent children and leads to good Karma.


Shanthi, along with her daughter, visits these children every year to hand over the collected amount in person and to see for herself the progress made.
