KIRTAN - Helping Hands for India Fundraiser

  • Shunnya Centre 70 Union Street Ottawa, ON, K1M Canada (map)

My friends at Shunnya Centre are hosting "Helping Hands for India Funraiser".

I have the great honour of leading a chant during Kirtan! 

Join us for Meditation, Sat Sang, Kirtan, in support of this great cause. Suggested donation is $20, or what you can.

Helping Hands for India is a charitable organization, managed by a dedicated team of volunteers, who has an interest in helping people with less fortunate circumstances to better their lives. We are a non-denominational group, supported by the Anand Prakash Ashram in Rishikesh, India, who are committed to provide educational opportunities and to promote well being to children in India.

The village of Pritamgarh, located about 2 hours from Rishikesh in northern India, is where we’ve built our eco-friendly school. The land is beside a river and has its own Bikesnatural spring. It’s the perfect location to grow organic herbs and vegetables.

Sansar Gyaan Pathshala, which means ‘World Knowledge Lessons’ is the name of the school. We have almost 300 children from Kindergarten to grade 6 coming every day.

With your help we have made tremendous progress and now we need ongoing support for operations and maintenance, as well as building two new classrooms this year. You can continue to help us by making a donation*. Find out more about our plans for 2016.

Thank you for your support.
