Global SEVA Challenge 2012 INDIA



Dear family and friends,

I have taken upon a very important, yet challenging goal for myself this year. I have signed my intention form to raise, as much as I can, bringing awareness to the India Seva Challenge 2012; Bare Witness: Indian Humanitarian Tour, with one of my most inspiring yoga teachers, Seane Corn, a founder of “Off the Mat, Into the World” (OTM).

Seva means Selfless Service and it is through the Spirit of Seva that I have committed myself to the 2012 Seva Challenge. Through fundraising and events it is my goal to raise as much as I can for India by December, where we will be working on eradicating human trafficking and bringing awareness to the HIV/AIDS crisis. “Off The Mat Into The World”, part of the Engage Network, is a 501(c)(3) charity organization that bridges Yoga and Activism.

For more information on this year’s Challenge and how to get involved, please check out The potential partners and projects that we will be working with are the Apne Aap’s 3L Advocacy Program, where women and children learn resources valuable and necessary to survive; supporting the Dance Movement Therapy, building a “Center of Excellence” with Kolkata Sanved; building and painting a new training center, helping 40 women join the agency with Made by Survivors; building a composting machine, encouraging a cleaner environment with Clean Himalaya; building a shelter to house 25 girls with Sanlaap and building a new study space for children, with Ramana’s Garden. Your generous donation will help contribute towards the wellbeing of women and children, empowering them, rescuing them and rehabilitating them~giving a Voice to the Voiceless.

Once again, my goal is to raise as much as I can by December 2012 for India. If you have any questions and would like to discuss this further please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your consideration,

Ela Wojtowicz
