YOGA GIVES BACK
Mission:to mobilize the global yoga community to empower women in India to build sustainable livelihoods.
Yoga Gives Back is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds in order to alleviate poverty in India. Yoga Gives Back supports micro credit programs in India which lend small loans to women in particular, who have no access to capital. Additionally, we developed "Sister Aid" programs where YGB directly funds education, vocational training and micro credit programs for struggling mothers, girls and orphans. Women are the best poverty fighters—the most effective return on investment for development dollars is an investment in women. With $25 a month, mothers can start their own businesses; girls and orphans can go to school.
C pur and Yoga Gives Back have started working together as partners in 2011. 10% of all C pur proceeds go to help the women and children in India thanks to the hard and dedicated work that people do at Yoga Gives Back.
