Event in France

Every year, we plan a new development of our projects. Our pilote project YOOBUNTOO HOUSE is located in Cape Town and once established, we plan to develop further in other parts of Africa and other parts of the world.

In order to finance our projects, we organize events in Switzerland and around the world. Join us and be the change you want to see in this world. 

La saison d'été 2017 est terminée et nous remercions toutes les personnes ayant participé, les professeurs ayant donné de leur temps et les bonnes volontés pour leur soutien sous de multiples formes. Mais l'aventure continue même en hiver!

 

Des nouvelles d'Afrique du Sud

Busi donne des cours de yoga aux personnes agées toutes les semaines, dans le Community Center de Imizamo Yethu - Hout Bay, Cape Town

Elle donne aussi des cours de yoga prénatal avec l'aide des professeurs volontaires sur place, le vendredi matin dans le même centre. 

 

Nous avons acheté 15 tapis de yoga pour donner des cours avec plus de confort

 

L'organisation CARES, à Hout Bay, qui s'occupe des personnes sous traitement pour cause d'addiction, propose maintenant des cours de yoga aussi une fois par semaine. 

 

Nous espérons sécuriser tout ces cours sur le long terme. 

 

En janvier Petra apportera ses connaissances sur place et continuera de former l'équipe de volontaires sur place. Félix sera aussi plusieurs semaines sur place pour coordonner les activités et développer notre présence afin de continuer le projet Yoobuntoo House Project pour lequel des fonds sont nécessaires.

New Project 2016/17 – Cape Town: a Yoobuntoo House in the mother city 

Our aim:  make Ahimsa (non-violence in the code of personal disciplin in yoga tradition) become a reality in various parts of the world. Violence in townships is at many corners. Read what a medical doctor said while he was working in Khayelitsha, Cape Town's township, during one night just like another:

  • 1 stabbed heart
  • 4 gun shots
  • 4 severe traumatic brain injuries
  • 5 "community assaults"
  • 8 total fatalities secondray to trauma, 6 of the facilities were under 16

Yoobuntoo House – A Karma Yoga project of Swiss Yogathon:

 

Past project: 2015 – Tenzin in Dharamsala

At Children Tibetan Village, Dharamsala - Northern India, we support Tenzin.

 

Her mum is sick, at the hospital in Delhi. Abandonned by her father who was violent with both, Tenzin has been accepted in this village where she learns, grows and live in a safe environment. 

 

Past project: 2014 – Sanitary Plan in Maharashtra, India

With help from Yoga VidyaGurukul near Nashik, we supported a sanitary plan to support workers in villages and families with no resources and no medical plans. Volunteers Doctors visited those villages and brought medcaments or dealt with emergencies when possible. 

 

Previous years, we helped for the construction of a water reserve (well) in order to help people from small villages have clean water rather than drink unfiltered water full of mud and bacterias. 

"It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result."      Mahatma Gandhi

 

" If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning"

Gandhi
