Eurasia Learning Institute for Happiness and Wellbeing contributes to the development of Eurasia and its humanitarian/ ecological projects
We started ELI to train our Eurasia staff especially in Vietnam; very soon our learning programs reached far beyond the Peaceful Bamboo Family and hundreds of educators, and social workers joined regular programs over many years.
More recently, we developed learning events and programs that went beyond the specific fields of special education and social therapy to encompass Biodynamic farming, Gross National Happiness, bringing Happiness and wellbeing in organizations, Happy Schools, and we partner with Universities to create year-long programs on Inner Transformation leading to Social Innovation.
When we first began, all our programs were offered for free and we had to fundraise to organize the courses.
More recently, we have started establishing income generating programs for instance by creating programs for corporations.
One of our aims is also to gradually enable our trainers and facilitators to earn a “Right Livelihood” that allows them to fully focus their time and energy for the development of ELI.
10% of all the income generated by ELI programs is always given to Eurasia as a contribution to help fund the educational, humanitarian and ecological programs that need financial support.
