How We Give Back
Believe in meaningful interactions with the communities we visit.
Jagori Rural Charitable Trust
Jagori’s mission is to create a just and equal society for all. They address discrimination on gender, caste, religion, disability, and sexual identities. They aim to strengthen the voices of women and girls and ensure their right to life and safety. During our Introduction to Tibetan Retreat in Dharamshala we visit Jagori and take any supplies they may need that we can carry and Vibrant Women provides a donation of $25 per booking to this charity.
From 2018 we have been supporting an NGO in Delhi that provides services and education to children with disabilities and their families. We endevour to visit Samadhan during our Marigold Tour if we are in Delhi on a week day. The staff love it if we can bring activity materials for the children. Vibrant Women provides a donation of $25 per booking to this charity.
