Pank-The Creative School is an official partner of Gyan Yog Breath.
It is school for 200 slum children around Rishikesh that usually could not afford education. The school is completely sponsored by donators from different countries.
The school provides school uniforms, books, stationary, qualified teachers and outdoor activities.
The children are trained in Hindi, Maths, English, Arts, Crafts, Sports, Music and Dance.
Alankrita Banerjee, the founder of Pankh, who is a guest teacher at Gyan Yog Breath introduced a campaign called Empower Her to the mothers of the children.
They are taught to make bags and jewellery from plastic and paper waste so they can contribute to the family income.
In Rishikesh, there are more than 10.000 families that live on the outskirts of the city with an income below 1000 Rupees per month.
Since 2014, Gyan Yog Breath holds free Yoga Classes and Workshops at Pankh and provides regular meals for the kids.
During a Yoga Teacher Training with Gyan Yog Breath, students get the chance to spend an afternoon with the children, teach yoga to the kids and get to know India behind the scenes.
May 2018: Towards the end of our 200 & 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in May, we invited Pankh-the Creativity School to our yoga ashram. Pankh the Creativity school is a school that provides free education, stationery, and clothes to the children living in the slums of Rishikesh. It’s run by our dear friend and partner Alankrita Bannerjee.
