Founded in 1981 by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ji, “The Art of Living Foundation” is one of the the world's largest volunteer-based, humanitarian and educational non-governmental organization (NGO).

oday, volunteers from “Art of Living” visited Shafa to interact with the residents and devote some of their positive energy there.
The purpose of their visit was two pronged. On one hand our residents felt proud and experienced self-worth. They felt that the society is still concerned about them and that they have a role to fulfill in the outside world. In a way it was like re-establishing them with the main stream of the society.
And at the same time the volunteer from “Art of Living” saw it as a part of their social obligation. We at Shafa have always believed that addressing to social responsibilities is not only Shafa’s role. Every individual should be encouraged to do his best, to put in his/her share for a common purpose, to understand and fulfill his social responsibility.
Residents and the volunteers had a great time together, their experiences were remarkable, participation & involvement were 100%. This is what the volunteers from “Art of Living” had to say:-

  •         “We are 16 in numbers and visited the rehab centre. We felt very nice, the system here is very lovely, organized, disciplined and well managed. The noble work should go on.”
  •         “You are doing superb work.....All the Best.”
  •        “It was a great experience. Keep up the hard work.All the Best…….”
