Dear Friends, as you already know that apart from providing other types of vocational training to our girls at Food for Life Vrindavan, we also provide sewing and embroidery training not only to our school girls but also to the local women of Vrindavan so that they may help themselves and work independently. We are pleased to share with you that new designs directly from our sewing and embroidery training centre are ready.

Scientists are discovering that meditation can significantly improve a person’s physical and mental health. In seeking a more permanent and satisfactory solution to the physical and mental problems, many people (including doctors and psychologists) have now turned towards meditation and have got impressive results.
