Our Holistic Approach

How We Work

The Art of Living transforms societies by instilling a vision, making role models, promoting a sense of community and giving people a voice.

The Art of Living—Projects Management Unit (PMU) is a special technical wing within The Art of Living that implements holistic solutions for social, economic and environmental issues. Our goal is to enable transformation by acting as intermediary between various resource providers and communities.These connections combined with our empowerment, accountability and sustainability models, enable a lasting impact towards our shared goals.

Empowerment Model

Our Youth Leadership Training Program (YLTP) transform ‘vulnerable’ young men and women into leaders in their communities. They become proactive ‘advocates’ for change and ‘owners’ of their challenges. We work with these empowered leaders toward complete development of their communities.

Accountability Model

We provide project accounts and activity reports at periodic intervals throughout the project. At our closing stage, we provide a final financial accountability report that identifies where and how the funds were used. During this stage, we also provide a post impact analysis report, which evaluates the impact of our guidance in the established project area to determine its effectiveness. This allows us to identify improvements needed to strengthen future projects.

Sustainability Model

Our empowered community leaders continue to be torchbearers for their community long after project timelines are over making our impact sustainable.
