Your Donations' Impact


We are making a difference! Imagine, all these teen girls would have been married off if it were not for your support. Yoga Gives Back's new initiative, "SHE" (Scholarship for Higher Education) click to is now successfully funding 64 destitute but eager and determined high school students in Karnataka and West Bengal with a five-year commitment for them to get a college degree. Here are some personal messages from girl students in West Bengal. Read more about this program here and these girls' stories from India at Kayoko's Journey.


Madhumita Mondal
I have seen girls of my age being married off and now becoming the mother of 3-4 children. My future would have been the same, if I would not have gotten the support from SHE to continue education and understand the ill-effects of early marriage on the life of a girl.

Suparna Sarkar
My father is paralysed and stays at home. He always used to shout at me. He wanted to arrange my marriage and stop education. My mother struggles to run our family. I always want to be a doctor and I am thankful to SHE with its support I am moving toward my dream.
