Since 2003, The Aparigraha Project uses Yoga and emotional management to empower girls deprived of their liberty at the Foundação CASA - Chiquinha Gonzaga unity. The goal is to teach them to accept and respect themselves and each other, as well as control their emotions to find peace within themselves. We rely on volunteer work from Yoga teachers and practitioners.

We also use our collaborative network to donate yoga mats, books and to help develop festival events, such as Christmas, other holiday-related festivities, and Value Bazaars. 

 

Would you like to volunteer or help with donations?
