Moonchild Yoga Wear and Action Child Aid support vulnerable children in India
Moonchild Yoga Wear and Action Child Aid have agreed to collaborate and support vulnerable children in India. You support children and youngsters in India with education and health, when you buy Moonchild Yoga Wear’s Autumn/Winther 2016/ 17 collection.
In India 48 million stunted children lives and education and health is most needed. Action Child Aid have many years of experience in supporting and assisting the most needed children. Every year ACA helps more than 4.000 children and their families with education and nutrition through sponsorship program and through support to four local organizations, all working with vulnerable children.
” At Action Child Aid, we are very happy for this cooperation with professional people from the private sector and every contribution makes a huge difference, when you work with children, as we do. We are looking forward to helping even more families with education and health, as well as supporting our local Indian partners in the dialogue with the local authorities,” says chairman of Action Child Aid, Mr. Rune-Christoffer Dragsdahl.
Moonchild Yoga Wear is a Danish fashion company focusing on sustainable yoga and fitness clothes, started by creative director and entrepreneur Louise Wang Nielsen. The clothes is produced according to high environmental standards in the EU, and is sold in Scandinavia, England, Germany, Netherlands, Slovenia and recently launched in Australia.
In the beginning of 2016, the dialogue between Moonchild Yoga Wear and Action Child Aid started, from a point of departure of making a difference to others, and contribute to the fulfillment of the UN SDG’s. The cooperation ensures a substantial percentage of the Moonchild Yoga Wear sale of the Autumn/Winther collection will go to Action Child Aid’s work with children in the southern part of India.
One of Action Child Aid’s four Indian partners is running a children’s home in Kanyakumari at the very southern spot of India. Every day the children at the home are practicing yoga, to improve their concentration and health and maximize their learning at school.
” At Moonchild Yoga Wear we would like to support vulnerable children and with our focus on clothes for yoga, which has its origin in India, it was a natural choice to enter into a cooperation with Action Child Aid. Their way of working is very inspiring and there is no doubt that help arrives at the right place”, says Louise Wang Nielsen.
As part of the cooperation, the Danish super model Solveig Moerk, from Unique Models, travelled to Denmark from New York and volunteered to model for the A/W collection. The Danish photographer Gitte Post is likewise an important part of the cooperation. “I am very proud that we managed to gather so many professional and lovely people to be part of this project”, says Louise Wang Nielsen.
Moonchild Yoga Wear’s new collection will be available in the selected stores during Autumn 2016.
