EMPOWERING CHILDREN

“Urban Zen Foundation is influenced by the concept of past, present and future. There is no greater investment in the future than in our children. In order to create leaders within communities, both small and global, children must be educated beyond reading, writing and arithmetic, Our initiative of empowering children includes creating a curriculum of social responsibility, compassion and self-respect both emotionally and physically through education, nutrition and yoga. We collaborated with Spirituality for Kids in their Global Awareness Launch because their curriculum empowers children beyond the academics.” – DONNA KARAN

Our mission is to care for our children’s well-being and give them the tools to face obstacles and opportunities with love, compassion and strength. We collaborate and support existing children’s organizations and create programs to enhance their spiritual, physical and emotional growth.
