Nevandra | Yogi Rescue Home – Providing a Safe Place for Women to Escape Slavery
Yogi is proud to support the Nevandra Association, an organization supporting human rights of young children in India – a region of the world where we source many of the spices used in our teas. Our continued support of two Nevandra projects, Children’s Home and Education for You, has helped to provide impoverished children in Hyderabad, India with shelter, healthcare and education. We’re honored to share that Yogi is now supporting a third Nevandra project, the Yogi Rescue Home:
Yogi Rescue Home
Sadly, human trafficking and slavery are not an unusual practice in India, and especially impact families moving from India’s countryside to larger, urban areas in hopes of finding a better life. Human traffickers seek to take advantage of these families with young children, taking children and selling them as slaves into child labor or even into the sex industry. The Yogi Rescue Home provides shelter to young women who have managed to escape such situations, providing them with a safe and secure home, psychological support and educational resources to help them reenter society and live a happy, healthy, and independent life.
