Our mission is to combat human trafficking and sexual exploitation by empowering women and children around the globe through education and entrepreneurial opportunities.

WHAT WE DO
The Yoga Medicine® Seva Foundation partners with the local anti-trafficking organization Her Future Coalition (formerly known as Made By Survivors). Our partner provides holistic healing, including shelter, healthcare, arts therapy and most importantly, traditional and vocational education. We offer service opportunities for our top fundraisers to attend our trips to India, where they can meet the women and children in the shelters, and see the impact of their fundraising.
We are passionate about providing and sustaining education that empowers survivors to rebuild their lives and support their families. These educational programs give survivors the tools they need to become leaders in their families and communities, uplifting others and passing on the virtue of self-worth. In a culture where women are thought to have little value, educating and empowering them ensures freedom forever.
The Yoga Medicine® Seva Foundation was established to address the severity of India’s human trafficking crisis. We are funded by Yoga Medicine® members and people like YOU. We are independent of any political ideology, economic interest or religion. Our belief is that no situation is beyond hope and India being the birthplace of yoga, we believe it is our duty to give back to a culture that has given us so much.
