I have been donating to IAHV for several years. I have met several volunteers and have been really touched by the dedication and commitment. It is one of the few organizations which offer holistic solutions to issues we are facing today. And also most of the contrubution goes to the project and only few %goes to administration.

I'm frequent donor for their children education program. I've visited the schools and seen the progress in under privileged children, whose no prior generations had any education. The schools are very clean, food is very healthy, and really makes smart and brilliant students. One most wonderful aspect about this organization is they are completely run by volunteers and therefore their administrative costs are low turning most of your donations into direct benefit to the society.

IAHV has been doing great work for many years. My kids have benefited tremendously by doing their breathing courses (art EXCEL). The organization is run by volunteers and the money raised by course fees is used for society in general and veterans and prison inmates in particular. Please look in to supporting this organization.

The most striking thing about this organization and one that gives instant credibility to it, is that its entirely volunteer-run and I think mostly volunteer funded also. So literally these people are devoting their time and money to see a better world come about. In fact that's one of the teachings of the programs- to put yourself in service to others for true happiness.

On the downside, because its all voluntary, sometimes things can get a little mismanaged. Just a tad, but still impressive to see (and be a part of) all that gets done.

On a personal note, I have found lot of love and direction through this organization

During our current time you don't know who to trust and are not sure where your money is going. This is a group you can trust who does great work and is dedicated to make a difference in the world. I wish there were more organizations like IAHV. Making positive changes in the lives of our youth today, Veterans, people in need, the list goes on.....

My 8 year old took Art Excel Course through IAHV and I see tremendous changes in him. I see him more calmer, responsible, loving, giving and happy! The breathing technique that he has learned has been of great use because whenever things don't go well at school, he comes home and directly goes to his bedroom and does the technique. It calms his mind and helps him with his emotional suffering! He later shares with me what happened and he himself tells me the solution to deal with it! Its so amazing to see your child taking action in a positive and healthy way! I am glad that I know this organization because it teaches a child to fish rather than giving a fish :)


Love,
Happy Parent

This is a phenomenal organization - the type of work it does, it directly transforms the life of folks - from Youth Empowerment workshops for teenagers to handle stress; to helping people around the world to "re-build their lives" after natural calamities; to helping veterans deal with PTS & reintegrate back to regular-lifestyles; giving hope to prisoners; etc..!

I have been very fortunate to be a volunteer for this amazing organization and see results first hand, and am sure will continue to help out in any way possible!

I am a volunteer and supporter of IAHV for a while now. I have donated to various causes like the Tsunami in Japan, earthquake in India, earthquake in Haiti, etc.
I take particularly special pride in supporting the YES program offered by IAHV in schools. The program teaches young kids techniques to manage stress, control negative emotions - especially anger in young kids, be peaceful, and brings up their positivity, creativity, prepares them for the world they enter in to after school life, and sows the seeds for success in their lives. I have had the opportunity to listen to kids who have experienced the benefits of YES offered by IAHV at a fund raiser in San Jose, it was beautiful to hear transformation in kids in their own innocent words.

I will always support IAHV. IAHV offers great tools for me to make a positive impact on the planet.
