International Center for Girls
Making a difference one girl at a time at our International Center for Girls
As former Director of Peace through Yoga’s teacher trainings, Chris Yovanovich assisted Dr. Sally Brown Bassett, Founder, with the development of the Peace through Yoga Foundation’s International Center for Girls. The Center’s mission is to enrich, educate, and empower girls in the rural area of Carbón I and the surrounding community in Costa Rica. Our vision is for the Costa Rican girls to grow up to be smart, poised and confident. Our hope is for each girl to reach their full intellectual and earning potential so that they are economically self-sufficient and can assume leadership positions in communities.
The International Center for Girls offers English classes offered by a trained native English speaker, a sewing and business skills program, art and music activities, life skills workshops on topics such as conflict resolution, mindful movement/yoga and health initiatives, guest speakers, and educational field trips. Individuals who participate in our one week retreats to Costa Rica spend a day with the girls doing educational activities.
To donate, please mail checks to: Indiana Yoga Studio with a note indicating for Costa Rica.
100% of all donations go directly to support the programs in Costa Rica.
