CHARITIES I SUPPORT

I am always looking for new projects to fundraise for and work on. I am also looking for projects overseas and I am happy to travel to work in yoga studios & communities around the world. 

I couldn't be more grateful to have had the opportunity to train in yoga and practice what I love and I truly believe it is important for people to come together and  give back when possible.  

See, some of the charities I have supported since the beginning of the journey:

Ourmala

Ourmala helps refugees and asylum-seekers rebuild their lives and integrate. Most are recovering from atrocities such as torture, sexual violence in conflict and human trafficking, registered with the UK Home Office.

Sphoorti

 A non-profit organization working for underprivileged children - orphaned, abandoned, destitute and other vulnerable groups. Our mission is to change lives of such children - by providing them with long-term care. This includes basic needs, education and healthcare, and skills necessary to transform them into responsible citizens.

Beyond the streets

Beyond the Streets is a UK charity working to end sexual exploitation by Creating Routes Out through working directly with women.

When someone is involved in prostitution, reliable information and support can change their life. They journey with women to understand their situation and the choices available to them. They are there for women as they take practical and manageable steps that lead to a genuine route out of prostitution.

Africa Yoga Project

Africa Yoga Project delivers global wellbeing in and from Africa. We practice and teach Yoga with a deep conviction that the potential to change the world lives in each of us. Our bodies and minds must be connected in order to create lasting change. We deliver tools to bring wellbeing to the world, one body at a time.

Shelter

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.

We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.

Hand in Hand for Syria

We take emergency aid right into Syria

We’ve been at the forefront of humanitarian aid in Syria since 2011. We take emergency support and supplies to people in the most difficult conditions across 90% of the country, helping them to avoid having to leave Syria.

Homes for Syrians

Homes for Syrians matches those spaces in UK homes with Syrian refugees who have been granted a leave to remain in the UK but have no immediate access to accommodation.  The accommodation is offered completely free of charge, usually includes food and is for up to six months. Our approach gives Syrian refugees the opportunity to integrate and acclimatise to life in the UK whilst improving their English, applying for courses and finding jobs. The transformation we have seen in some of the people we have placed has been truly remarkable.

War Child

We aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out, and stay on to support them - long after the TV cameras have gone home.

We help keep them safe, give them an education, and equip them with skills for the future.

We understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of everything we do. Whether it's helping Syrian children access education, rehabilitating ex-child soldiers in the Central African Republic or seeking justice for young people detained in Afghanistan.

We also work with children and young people to change systems and practices that affect them. We campaign on the root causes of conflict, and we demand that children are at the centre of all humanitarian responses.

The White Helmets

The volunteers save people on all sides of the conflict - pledging commitment to the principles of “Humanity, Solidarity, Impartiality” as outlined by the International Civil Defence Organisation. 

The White Helmets mostly deal with the aftermath of government air attacks. 

Bakers, tailors, engineers, pharmacists, painters, carpenters, students and many more, the White Helmets are volunteers from all walks of life. Many have paid the ultimate price for their compassion - 154 have been killed while saving others.

As well as saving lives the White Helmets deliver public services to nearly 7 million people, including reconnecting electrical cables, providing safety information to children and securing buildings. They are the largest civil society organisation operating in areas outside of government control, and their actions provide hope for millions.

UNHCR

The world is witnessing unprecedented numbers of people forced to flee their homes. Driven by the Syria crisis and conflicts in South Sudan, Central African Republic, Burundi and Central America, they are rising every day.

To escape the violence they leave behind everything.

Now, a shelter crisis is unfolding, with millions of families arriving in refugee camps or struggling in sub-standard housing and half-built shelters. We believe all refugees deserve to live in safe shelter. Nobody Left Outside is a global campaign to raise funds to shelter two million people who have been forced to flee their homes.

Only UNHCR has the reach and expertise to tackle this crisis at scale – but we can’t do this alone.

Be a part of the solution and help make sure there is Nobody Left Outside.
