The Khushi Foundation
The Khushi Foundation is a registered, independent, hands-on, 100% donation-based organization in Rishikesh, India headed by Anand Mehrotra and Madelien Mishra-Broekman and helped by local volunteers.
Khushi Means Joy
This grassroots organization provides the most vulnerable children in Rishikesh with education, supplemental nutrition, medical assistance, and other activities and programs that support the well-being, quality of life, and consciousness of the hundreds of children benefitting from the Khushi Foundation on an annual basis. In providing these services, the Kushi Foundation not only contributes to the lives of children, but raises their awareness so they can bring healing practices to their families and communities and joy to our world.
The Khushi Foundation’s approach to programs is to shift community consciousness toward education and social awareness and empower children to improve the socioeconomic conditions of their families for generations to come. Through its programs, the Khushi Foundation is breaking the cycle of poverty that envelops much of the developing world.
The Khushi Foundation is working to increase support for its current children and grow the number of children it can support in the future through its programs. It is also in need of resources for construction of new buildings, general repair and maintenance, ongoing facility improvements, and salaries for teachers. Please consider making a contribution; all donations will make a significant difference to the lives of children. Donations are tax-deductible and you will be provided with a receipt upon request.
