nevandra-logoSocial work in India is of particular significance to us, as many of the spices used in our teas are grown and sourced there.

Through the Nevandra Association, we support two projects to provide children in Hyderabad, India with hope for the future by facilitating self-help initiatives focused on love, shelter, health and education.

‘Leilani’ means ‘heavenly flower’ or ‘heavenly child’ and is the name of a home offering homeless, orphaned girls a secure and loving place to live. Currently, 15 girls between the ages of 4 and 12 are living there together with house parents as one large family. Through Yogi’s support, the Leilani project was able to admit 5 additional children to their home.

Secondly, through the ‘Education For You’ project, Nevandra facilitates self-help for families in poverty and looks after the children’s educational needs. In addition to school money, uniforms and books, Nevandra also provides lunches and regular medical check-ups. Families are encouraged to support their children throughout the learning process, meaning that parents, siblings and relatives also have the opportunity to learn to read, write and do arithmetic. In total, Yogi has helped to support the health and education of 40 children and their families.
