International Yoga Day Transforms Lives in Gurugram Through Sarvoday Gramin Vikaas Program

Sarvoday Gramin Vikaas Program

Gurgaon, India – 21 June 2024: The Sarvoday program of M3M Foundation represents an integrated village development approach aimed at fostering self-reliance and comprehensive growth in identified villages. This initiative focuses on enhancing healthcare, livelihoods, youth and women’s skill development, natural resource management, sustainable agriculture, and livestock management. In pursuit of the holistic development of 81 villages in the Tauru block, with the ambition of expanding to 150 villages over the next five years, M3M Foundation, in collaboration with the District Administration spearheaded by the SDM Tauru, Education, Revenue and Health Department, introduced thousands of students from various villages in the Tauru block of Nuh district in Haryana to Yoga on International Yoga Day.

Additionally, the foundation is working closely with the district administration of Gurgaon to weave Yoga into the fabric of both rural and urban India.

Dr. Payal Kanodia, Chairperson of FICCI YFLO Delhi and Trustee of M3M Foundation, “On International Yoga Day, I affirm that one of the most impactful initiatives for unlocking human potential is the celebration and promotion of Yoga, spearheaded by Shri Narendra Modi Ji. Personally embracing Yoga as a way of life has been transformative for me, and I attribute my Kettle Bell World Championship win to the rigorous practice of Yoga, which provided inner peace and strength to surpass my limits.

In my ancestral village of Tauru, we are implementing various programs such as Lakshya and iMpower under the integrated village development initiative ‘Sarvoday’. Together with the District Administration, Education, and Health Department, M3M Foundation is introducing thousands of students from different villages in the Nuh district of Haryana to Yoga. We are also working closely with the district administration of Gurgaon to integrate Yoga into the fabric of both rural and urban India.

Our initiative underscores our commitment to embedding Yoga into the lives of young people and fostering a healthier, more cohesive community.”

These initiatives are closely aligned with the Ministry of Ayush’s efforts to transform Haryana and cultivate a cadre of trained yoga experts who will conduct mass training sessions across the state, supported by M3M Foundation in execution. Today, alongside celebratory events in Tauru, Gurgaon hosted a large gathering of thousands of young people, honoured by the presence of Sanjay Singh, Minister of State for Sports & Environment, Forest, and Wildlife (Independent Charge) of Haryana. These events mark a significant step toward promoting yoga as a pivotal element of health and well-being in the region, furthering the collective goal of fostering a healthier and more resilient community.
