Kripalu Volunteer Program
August 2013-August 2014
During my year at Kripalu, I was fortunate enough to learn so much about service and giving to other. I had the opportunity to do three different jobs while there getting to know the organization from the inside out while seizing every possible chance to learn from visiting and in-house presenters. I will forever be grateful for this magical year of my life.
Unfortunately, this program has been discontinued.
Kevin Rohan Memorial Eco Foundation, Kathmandu, Nepal
The foundation was originally a haven of bio-dynamic farming founded in 2008. Today, it has expanded to be an integral part of the village of Khahare, outside Kathmandu. The foundation aims to create a healthy, sustainable environment that embodies eco-friendly practices for the well-being of local communities. The founding principles of respect, integrity, dignity, productivity, trust and inclusiveness have enabled the initial farm to expand. Today it includes a guesthouse, a volunteer program, local and sustainable fuel production, the use of local resources for crafts, ecological architecture, training and education for handicapped, old aged, and leprosy affected people, a free medical clinic, a Waldorf-inspired school, and daily yoga classes while I was there.
