Making money is happiness. Making other people happy is a SUPER HAPPINESS.
Dr Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Laureate was honored with YGB’s Namaste Award 2021 at the Global Gala
Thank you everyone who participated and supported our Annual Global Gala on Saturday, November 13th. It was truly a day filled with inspiration, with more than 1,300 people registering from around the world.
We were thrilled to have Dr Yunus with us who shared his unwavering vision to create a world with three zeros: zero poverty, zero unemployment and zero net carbon emissions with action. Learn more about Dr Yunus here.
This year’s Global Gala underscored the real power of YGB’s global Ambassadors and supporters who generously offered one of a kind dialogues, mindfulness practices, and yoga sessions as well as auction items.
We also met with three YGB Scholarship students in India who shared their personal stories of empowerment and hope against all odds. The YGB FILM “From Seedling to Sheltering Tree: Guruprsad’s Journey” was premiered, as well. You can watch this truly inspiring story of our first scholarship student’s transformation below.
The REPLAY of all these enlightening sessions are now available for access through the end of the yer, for a donation as small as $10. If you have already registered, please use the same log-in and livestream links.
Together, we have raised over $45,000 so far, and we are on track to reach to our goal of $50,000 to empower more than 2400 women and children in India with YGB programs.
A big thanks to YGB Ambassadors & Supporters from around the world to make this year’s Gala a big success!
