Earthchild Project

Connect. Cultivate. Inspire.

Established in 2007, Earthchild Project is a Cape Town based nonprofit organization working with over 2,000 children in 8 different schools in Khayelitsha and Lavender Hill, South Africa. They work within the school curriculum providing yoga, mindfulness and healthy living classes to promote holistic education, driven by the belief that learning and transformation occurs only when we are connected to ourselves, others and our environment. For many children living in the townships this is the only and a much needed nurturing, safe and supportive space.

The Shala has championed the Earthchild Project for many years – holding fundraising classes and events, donating mats and volunteering. Together we have sponsored over 100 children with weekly yoga classes. 

Every Sunday we hold a fundraising class from 6.00 – 7.15 pm. All proceeds from this class are given to the Earthchild Project. Every R200 supports 1 child with weekly yoga lessons for a year. Join us to Share the Love of Yoga!

The Earthchild Shala Campaign in Kayelitsha

The Earthchild Project and The Shala Cape Town Yoga School have teamed up to build a Yoga Shala in the form of a environmentally-friendly classroom.

Approximately 3200 children in Cape Town Townships receive regular yoga classes with the Earthchild Yoga Project, a non-profit organization based in Kayelitsha and Lavendar Hill, offering complimentary education to under-resourced schools. Through the practice of yoga and meditation, these young children are encouraged to connect with themselves as well as grow into conscious, confident and responsible children.

The Earthchild Project has identified the need for these children to have a space that is quiet and safe. They have teamed up with The Shala Cape Town Yoga School to build a Yoga Shala in the form of a environmentally-friendly classroom, which will empower these children to inspire dreaming and visioning
