Yoga Gives Back is a registered non-profit organisation in the United States, founded in 2007 by Kayoko Mitsumatsu to express gratitude for the gift of yoga by mobilising the global yoga community to empower impoverished women and children in Mother India to build sustainable livelihoods.
Each year the worldwide yoga community unites with a heart opening effort to change the lives of those less fortunate during this global campaign. This annual campaign generates the majority of Yoga Gives Back’s funding to India each year to nearly 1200 mothers, children and youths with education funds and micro-financing inspired by Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Dr Muhammad Yunus.
