Inching our way to the finish line on Two Inspired Yogi’s! This site is dedicated to fundraising efforts my friend Jeanne and I put together for a service project working with women and children in Nepal. If we reach our goal of $9,000, the travel costs will be covered, as well as the special Harambee Arts program we were selected to participate in. It is the last stretch and we have less than $3,000 more to go! We could use your help, even in the smallest increment.
THE BEST PART IS:
you can buy a photograph for your friend, sister, mother, or neighbor
for Mother’s Day
and get one for yourself
This offer is valid from Thursday May 9th- Sunday May 12th.
That gives you plenty of time to look at walls in your house that are dying to be decorated with a stellar 8×10 photograph taken by
myself or my friend Jeanne.
All the proceeds will go towards Two Inspired Yogi’s and you will receive something in return for your efforts. Please add in the “note for buyer” section of your purchase the name of the print you would like for the free promotion.
Or, you can visit our site and make a direct donation.
We appreciate any and all the help we can get. Thank you!!!

Meeting the Beneficiaries
A few days ago we got a list of the beneficiaries, the people who will get the cowsheds, azolla pits, vermi-composts and eco-sanitation units built for them by us. It was a big list of about 15 families and the first job was to go round to see speak to them all individually and see what kind of people they are.
We were shocked, the family with the biggest house in the village and bundles of money to spare was one of them, and a person with two cowsheds that they rented out and didn’t even own any cattle themselves was another. We also asked for the kind and ever so welcoming Miss Moni to be put on the list, but she wasn’t there.
When we all saw this list the team leaders stepped up and did their jobs perfectly, they rang up Giridhar and got him to come to the village for a meeting.
…After our rounds, that took a day and a half to complete, we finally got an answer back from Giridhar about the beneficiaries. It took a couple of meetings and a few phone calls but the team leaders got their way and we had five families struck off the initial list. These five families were on the list mainly due to their influence in the village and with the CMRC and MYRADA rather than their needs. As well as taking some names of the list we added three extra families to it, which are Moni, our Chef and the poorest non-tribal family in the village. Now we had a more manageable and worthy list of beneficiaries.
The beneficiaries obviously all knew each other and most are very good friends, but this meeting was very important not just for the beneficiaries, because we will be changing these people’s lives, but important to us. We will be working alongside these people, going in to their homes and sharing food and drink with them, this was the first step to building up a rapport that will remembered for the rest of our lives.
Wonderful story, you are doing really good work!
