I am excited to help my friends at Hope Roots raise funds this summer! Will you help me reach my goal of $1000+? Your contribution will impact the lives of many.
Our dear friends have recently started a nonprofit to further help those who are suffering. Hope Roots serves trauma survivors in India. In addition, they offer training for people from all over the world who want to learn how to better help those who are suffering. Please consider taking the time to read about their vision and what the aim to do. It's amazing and much needed work!
We met Sarah and Lijo almost a decade ago in India. We instantly bonded and remain connected. During our time in India we practiced yoga together and got to know their genuine love for art and people. Their love for others translates to action which is directed at tangible, sustaining improvement in people's lives. Seeing how consistent they are inspires us to help, too!
They currently live in Rishikesh, India. They serve the poor, widows and those in need, which include women and children, especially those susceptible to being victims of human trafficking and abuse. They teach yoga open to anyone. They also sponsor a work program that empowers women. This program teaches tailoring skills which provides hope and a way out of despair for these women. Upon completion of the program they earn a sewing machine to provide for themselves and their families.
I ask that you would consider joining us in these efforts. I do not doubt there will be much healing and many fruits in individual lives and families through this organization.
