Ahimsa International Foundation
Asian International School was established in 2007 under the aegis of Yayasan Ahimsa international, a foundation dedicated to the propagation of the Gandhian philosophy of Ahimsa. The word ‘ahimsa’, literally means non-violence. However the term has wider implications, since it not only denounces all forms of violence, but also embraces values such as peace, independence and self-reliance. The term in a spiritual nuance suggests a way of life that is sustainable and green.
The Ahimsa International Foundation is dedicated to the dissemination of the philosophy of Ahimsa. The foundation constantly endeavours to reach out to the public through it consciousness raising programmes; besides lending a helping hand to the less fortunate people among us through its various charitable activities. Some of the projects undertaken by the Foundation in the last two years include:
- Adopting schools in the impoverished regions of Bali.
- Sponsoring the education of poor children.
- Sponsoring the education of orphans.
- Offering medical help to the needy.
- Organising public awareness programmes.
