A big part of Moksha Yoga means taking your practice off the mat. Our studio supports a number of important organizations making a BIG difference in our communities through Karma Class funds and studio events.
Free the Children
Children helping children.
Free The Children is the world’s largest network of children helping children through education, with more than one million youth involved in our innovative education and development programs in 45 countries. Founded in 1995 by international child rights activist Craig Kielburger, Free The Children has a proven track record of success. The organization has received the World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child (also known as the Children’s Nobel Prize), the Human Rights Award from the World Association of Non-Governmental Organizations, and has formed successful partnerships with leading school boards and Oprah's Angel Network.
The primary goals of the organization are to free children from poverty and exploitation and free young people from the notion that they are powerless to affect positive change in the world. Through domestic empowerment programs and leadership training, Free The Children inspires young people to develop as socially conscious global citizens and become agents of change for their peers around the world.
Free The Children has built more than 650 schools and school rooms around the world and has reached more than one million young people through outreach in North America and the United Kingdom.
