Beautiful. Impressive. Worth supporting!

Our desire to share and support comes out of immense gratitude. We, Seema and Nico, were both born into academic families, attended universities and got an education which is a great fortune that will forever stay with us. In many countries though, children are not granted the opportunity to go to school and get equipped to navigate through this world. We believe that education is a human right, key to success and also the solution to most of our global conflicts.

In March 2016 we selected a charity project in India as receiver of regular donations from PRANAYUM profits. The ‘Gift A Smile’ program is highly trustworthy, has a wonderful approach, great outreach and very effective management. It is run entirely by volunteers so that all donations go directly to where they benefit the children most. We actually really went there personally, into the classrooms, met with the teachers and spoke with the children. We discussed our commitment with the national coordinator and learned all about the institution. It felt so right and was a truly touching experience.
