Finding Inner Peace
September 28, 2017
Children in Ratanpur, Bihar are finding a new sense of stability in their lives through yoga and meditation. Many of them are with the Musahar community and are of scheduled caste status. Our Village Coordinator, Nand Kishore, decided to find a way to improve their lives by teaching them yoga at school.
The lives of these children are challenging, as their parents are often agricultural labourers but can go without work for as many as eight months in a year. Children can be seen working alongside their families in the fields or as rag-pickers.
However in Ratanpur, school attendance is climbing as families make the decision to enrol their kids in school with the support of Amrita SeRVe and Amrita CREATE. We are giving school supplies and tutoring.
