We have just started crowdfunding project as a new challenge to gather funding for our school.

Thanks to our supporters in Japan, since the 2-month project opened on 13 November, it has already collected JPY893,000, 44% of our target amount in less than a week!!

But there is a catch…
The rule of the funding is “All or Nothing”, which means that we will receive the funding only when we reach the target amount of JPY 2million (USD 18thousand) by 11PM Japan time on 12th January 2018.

So the story goes….
We opened Senamura Yoga Ashram Guesthouse in Autumn last year right next to the school.
Now we have five rooms and a yoga hall!, and the website will be ready soon, but in the meantime, please visit this page if you haven’t done so yet.

The idea is that all the profit goes to cover the school running costs, and we are aiming to be self-sufficient in the near future.
But we are still paying off the initial construction cost at present.
That’s where this crowdfunding came in, in order for us to raise the funding for whole of the next year.
But since some people expressed concerns about donating on the Japanese site, we will ask you to go to this page and use PayPal instead:

For your reference, this is the Japanese crowdfunding page:
“As long as there are kids who need it- please support us run our free school in Bodhgaya”

Thank you very much for your continuous support!
