Changing the World, One Om at a Time
In 2008, a group of yoginis decided to bring the Austin Yoga Community together in support of a good cause. We called this event “Changing the World, One Om at a Time”. The first event was such a success, it had to be repeated.
Guided by the mission of “bringing local yoga communities together to support our global community for a brighter future,” these events have helped to raise over $15,000 combined for the Cambodian Children’s Fund in 2008, the Miracle Foundationin 2009, the Eco-Entrepreneurship Initiative of the Finca Projectin 2010, Bumi Sehat in 2011, and MADA in 2012.
This year, “Changing the World, One Om at a Time” has chosen to sponsor the Amala Foundation in their work to support the Bhatti Mines School. The Bhatti Mines community faces extreme hardship of poverty and unemployment. This is one of the most impoverished areas of Delhi. The 30,000 residents of the villages live in slum-like conditions lacking adequate shelter, running water, electricity, health services, schools and economic opportunity.
The Bhatti Mines School gives children in this area an alternative to forced labor: every day 200 children receive an education, empowerment and hope for the future. The Amala Foundation has been in partnership with the Bhatti Mines School for three years, and the One OM events are thrilled to join them in raising funds to continue this support.
