South African Whole Grain Bread Project










One of our projects in South Africa is to help fund for the South African Whole Grain Bread Project. This is an organization that is dedicated to improving the physical health and social well-being of the poor, unemployed and HIV/AIDS infected citizens of South Africa by establishing community-run "containerized" micro bakeries which produce fresh, high quality, whole grain breads. Watch the video to learn more.

Wristbands + Bhakti Fest: Joshua Tree, CA














What a wonderful place this was. This was an opportunity to support OTM and share my personal experience and stories with others.

I was given a great boost of energy. From kirtan performances, yoga classes, delicious raw and cooked foods, the stars at night, and creating connections with new friends, I found this to be a very special experience. I am grateful for being a part of it. Thank you OTM and see you next year Bhakti Fest!
