About this project:

ImpactHK builds relationships with the HK homeless community through kindness walks where they hand out food and clothes and provide support like counselling services or accommodation down the line to help them get back into society. To do so they sign a contract requiring them to commit to a job and attend mentor sessions. For more details about IMPACTHK please visit http://www.impacthk.org/

We at Andiappan Yoga Community (AYC), a registered NGO, actively seek out new organizations and groups to cooperate with where we can bring yoga to those who need it most.

ImpactHK is a registered NGO supporting the homeless with kindness and empowering them for change. It all began with an ambition of doing one kind act per month for the homeless and has now grown into over 40 kindness walks being hosted each month all over Hong Kong where volunteers connect with the homeless, building trust and developing friendships, opening doors to housing, job creation, sports, counseling mentorship and nutrition programmes to give them a real second chance in life.

ImpactHK understand the importance of providing beneficiaries with as many opportunities to connect and find happiness as possible. Its new sports and counselling centre, Place2Be, is a fun space where Community Helpers and homeless friends can get involved in healthy activities, have fun and see counsellors.

With intentions to support the physical and mental wellbeing of individuals ImpactHK are helping, AYC would like to extend free yoga classes to regular visitors of the Place2Be. 

For more information about this class and if you are willing to offer a venue please email to admin@yogacommunity.org.
