The Pink Lotus Yoga Festival will be raising money for two charities – Cash For Kids and The Arunachala Trust – our beloved school in India.
Cash for Kids fundraises throughout the year to provide help and support to sick, disabled and underprivileged children. Everything is raised in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire distributed in the same areas. We have four grant rounds throughout the year and we can tell you exactly where your money goes as we are in direct contact with the Health Visitors, Social workers and project workers who refer the families to us for help. We provide children with basic essentials such as clothes, beds and bedding, also provide specialist equipment for children with special needs and support many groups who provide much needed support and activities for children in very deprived areas of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
The Sri Ramana Matriculation School provides quality education to disadvantaged children in the rural communities surrounding the sacred mountain Arunachala. Established in 1988, the school is funded by the nonprofit Arunachalam Trust that was founded in the guiding light of the world proclaimed sage Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi.
Each of the science, mathematics, computer science, social studies, moral science and geography curriculums are taught in English. Students also receive instruction in their native language, Siddha (traditional herbal medical treatment), dance and music. The Trust provides students with books, school uniforms, daily lunch and transportation.
