KCA. - Keep a Child Alive

Take Action

Yoga for Life

This World AIDS Day, let’s do Yoga for Life!

World AIDS Day started in 1988 as the first ever global health day. Each year, we celebrate it on December 1st as a way to show our support for people living with HIV and to commemorate those who have lost their lives. This year, Giving Tuesday happens to fall on that same day. Giving Tuesday started in 2012, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as a way to officially kick off the season of giving.

In honor of these two special days occurring on Tuesday, December 1st, Keep a Child Alive (KCA) has organized Yoga for Life. We have reached out to yoga studios in New York City and around the United States (+ Finland!) to donate a class in benefit of children and families affected by HIV. Check out the list below to find a studio near you. Can’t find one? Connect us with your local studio so they can also get involved!


Why Yoga for Life?

Keep a Child Alive believes in the power of holistic care. In Rwanda and India, we have integrated yoga into our programs for children affected by HIV and have seen first-hand the major impact it can have – building both inner and outer strength. Yoga for Life is a chance for us to better ourselves while improving the lives of others as well.
