Yoga inspired fundraising ideas to get you started!
If you practise yoga
  • Set yourself a target of yoga poses, such as 100 Sun Salutations in a month!
  • Hold a competition with friends and family to show off your most advanced yoga positions.
If you teach yoga
  • Dedicate a class to HOPE and invite students to donate
  • Hold a class at an unusual location – like a beach, in a city square, or a local landmark.
  • Hold a family yoga day – make your event fun by offering family, senior or toddler lessons.
  • Host a Yoga-thon – with 24 hours of classes over a weekend in various Yoga disciplines.

HOPE’s Holistic Approach

HOPE is more than just an organisation – it is a community of individuals with a passion to make real and sustainable change to some of the world’s poorest and most neglected people. HOPE believes in a holistic approach to education and the all-round health and well-being of the children in our care, and this includes regularly practising yoga in HOPE’s Residential Childcare Centres.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
