about us

Gift a future. Gift a smile.

It all began in 1981 when Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a humanitarian & spiritual leader and an ambassador of peace and human values, noticed children of construction workers playing in the dust while the Art of Living center was being built.

Sri Sri observed that these children had no access to education. Basic lessons, healthcare, and free healthy food were provided to the children. With support from donors like you, we provide free holistic education to 70,000+ underprivileged children in 700+ schools in rural India with emphasis on social responsibility and human values. When we educate our children, we empower our communities.

We believe that education is a universal right that can help break the cycles of poverty, disease, and social inequity. It empowers children with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to shape a better future for themselves, their communities and the world. Join us in making the world a better place, starting with one child at a time.
