Let's Imagine was able to connect with the Pankh - Creative School in Rishikesh when the Let's Imagine founder, Kimberly, was volunteering in Rishikesh after she completed her 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at a local academy.

With the help of our supporters, Let's Imagine was able to donate $300 to the Pankh - Creative School to help them keep their inspiring work running.
