Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Dance

Mission: Yasmanth Inc. is an all-volunteer, youth-led 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit organization with the mission to preserve the world's culture by exposing both the present and future generations to its history, dance, and music. We strive to create an understanding and a renewed appreciation of these cultures through educational workshops and constant cultural exchanges.

Results: We have provided over 17 workshops, have so far scheduled 15 workshops for this year, and even more for next year at Children’s Museums, Art and Cultural Centers, Youth Centers at Military Bases, Centers for people with disabilities, and Senior Centers.

Target demographics: Aurora Over the Silk Road is for anyone and everyone who wants to learn about the Silk Road.

Geographic areas served: We work locally (New York City), nationally (USA), and internationally.

Programs: Aurora Over the Silk Road project is an interactive workshop that allows you to explore the cultural diversity of the Silk Road as you embark on a journey full of fun crafts, capturing performances, and sensational sensory experiences. Immerse yourself in the history, colors, sounds, and sights with original costumes, music, and folkloric dances of the many ethnic minorities found along the Silk Road. The educational cultural workshop consists of stations, which cover Science, Geography, History, Culture, Arts and Crafts, Music, and Dance. Participants will join Gul (the girl), Koy (the sheep), and Toge (the camel) on a journey through the Silk Road. With an interactive workshop as well as a performance, we enhance the learning experience while exploring the treasures found along the winding turns of the Silk Road.

Como Gerente de la Fundación Nacional Batuta de Colombia puedo ofrecer dos historias de eventos que hicimos gracias al apoyo decidido y total de YASMANTH. La primera es la gran gira que realizaron los niñas y niñas vulnerables, de una agrupación musical de Batuta en Cartagena, quienes hicieron una gira de conciertos en Honduras. Fue la experiencia más maravillosa y transformadora que vivieron y aún hoy en día lo recuerdan con afecto. La segunda fue una acción de voluntariado y apoyo directo a familias vulnerables de Cartagena, que llegó en un contenedor desde Estados Unidos a Colombia, cargado de ropa, juguetes, útiles, zapatos, que brindaron alegría a varios cientos de niños y muchas familias en una zona muy deprimida, todo gracias a Yasmanth.

Actualmente como Gerente de Plan Int. para la región del Chocó en Colombia, zona de selva húmeda tropical estamos impulsando proyectos en artes, cultura, y esperamos cubrir otras áreas en el futuro próximo.

YASMANTH es sin duda una gran organización social, sin ánimo de lucro que trabaja por el arte y la cultura para los que más lo necesitan.

The group was outstanding! It was one of our better special visitors for the youth and provided an expeirence like no other. Parents and children alike enjoyed the afternoon and hated seeing them leave. Thanks again for a job well done!

The performance of Aurora Over the Silk Road was not only educational and informative but enjoyable. Even though they are young Yasmine and Anthony are professional in their work. They have taken this organization above and beyond. Their performance is like opening up a book and bringing it to life.
