Donate to Arunachala Animal Sanctuary.
Several years ago, Sri Mooji visited the Arunachala Animal Sancturary in Tiruvannamalai and was deeply touched by the heart work that is taking place in service to the rescued animals brought to the centre almost on a daily basis. The team’s intense compassion, skill and loving care offered to the various animals was breath taking. Sri Mooji felt compelled to support the ongoing work of this remarkable centre.

How to help?
Mooji visited the Shanti Children in Tiruvannamalai and was struck by the level of dedication, care and love offered to these beautiful kids. The project is clearly having a positive impact on their lives. At the centre of all of this is Kumar – the project leader – whose inspiration both in his workers and in the children is undeniable. The Shanti Children Project helps orphans, one-parent children, and poor and needy children in the Tiruvannamalai area. This project caters especially towards girls, because in general, they have very limited opportunities for education in India. Shanti Children Project directly supports 50 poor children with funds for schooling, including their tuition, exam fees, notebooks, and uniforms. In addition, their Shanti Tuition Centre provides after-school tutoring, and music and painting workshops to 80 children.
Tiruvannamalai Children’s Orphanage
TDH CORE is a Child Welfare Organization working for the rescue and rehabilitation of children in distress, orphaned, abandoned, mentally or physically challenged or HIV/AIDS infected. TDH CORE currently looks after 924 children in need of care and protection who would otherwise be without food, shelter, medical attention or basic needs. They have saved the lives of hundreds of children. TDH CORE runs 8 children’s homes providing alternative families and 5 centres for 346 children with mental disabilities, autism and cerebral palsy. They also supports 2102 children through educational sponsorship, community based rehabilitation, child labour elimination and Poonthaleer, a project rescuing female babies from infanticide. TDH CORE is working on a Tribal Children Educational Project in Jawadhu Hills for children who are in danger of child trafficking and exploitation.

Donate to The Forest Way.
Mooji recalls that on his first visit to Tiruvannamalai almost 20 years ago, Arunachala – the Holy Mountain – appeared to be a brown and barren hill. Now an organization called The Forest Way is bringing the mountain back to its natural
ecosystem. The Forest Way has been working for the past six years to restore the varied ecosystems of the Holy Mountain Arunachala. Now it is clearly recovering its original beauty and power. We can imagine that much of its original
wildlife may one day soon be again roaming on its slopes. The Forest Way’s work includes planting tens of thousands of native saplings every year, protecting the regeneration process of the entire Hill from the hazard of fire, water
shed management, and the implementation of an educational program where local school children are introduced to their own forest, allowing them to explore and plant the seeds of reconnection to the natural world.
If you are in Tiruvannamalai, you can drop by their nursery at the start of the inner Pradakshina path. Long term volunteers are welcome and can stay in simple accommodation at their organic farm.
