Donate to Art of Living Service Projects

A healthy body and a stress-free mind. The birth-right of every human being.

For more than 30 years, volunteers from The Art of Living Foundations have been dedicated to humanitarian activities worldwide: with a presence in all continents of our world, all segments of society. We provide service projects directly to individuals; we act as advisor-consultant to society leaders, governments, NGOs. We aim to help – and empower wisely with a vision for long-term sustenance.

The Art of Living's founder, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, is personally engaged in several large-scale peace missions. Inspired by his message of peace, love and the vision of a violence-free and stress-free society, volunteers all over the globe have taken the commitment to contribute and play their part in making this vision a reality.

Art of Living Service Projects cover all the areas given in the Millennium development goals to which we have contributed significantly.

Our programs in brief:

Community building – 5H Program

Training thousands of youth (through the Youth Leadership Training Program) to implement the 5H program in underprivileged areas so families can have access to:
  • clean drinking water
  • homes to live in
  • hygiene
  • healthcare &
  • supporting the development of human values

By nurturing values like love, compassion, tolerance, caring and sharing - material support and development becomes sustainable.

Conflict resolution – Peace by Peace

Visiting over 40 countries a year for peace mediation and advocating intercultural dialogue, Gurudev has brought opposing parties to the negotiating table in areas of conflict such as Iraq, Kosovo, Sri Lanka, the Ivory Coast and the Indian states of Kashmir and Bihar.

With a vision of 'inner peace to outer peace', trauma relief programs have been carried out in conflict-afflicted regions. We believe that when the individual is peaceful, communities & societies become peaceful.

Education – Gift a Smile

Giving children, who are currently trapped in child labor and poverty, access to free education and a better future. Getting them back to school. First generation education in developing communities, where no-one in the family has had an education, are the most effective ways to uplift communities. When you educate the first generation you can affect a social sea change.

Disaster relief – Rebuilding lives

Art of Living Service Projects not only rebuild homes (see 5H program above), they rebuild lives. If you lose your family in a natural disaster, rebuilding your house is not enough to bring back the will to live. Our trauma care programs address this situation, by providing immediate relief and long term rehabilitation for those hit by natural or manmade disasters.
