Our Mission

Chandanni Scholarship Fund brings kids from underserved backgrounds to experience diversity and wellness in India and other nations. We are dedicated to exposing kids to diverse cultures and practices of wellness and mindfulness.

Why Kids

We have always felt that taking kids when they are at their crucial ages of emotional developement and exposing them to diversity and mindfulness would potentially allow them to flourish and foster means of inspiration and growth that are otherwise unavailable to them. All the kids we bring may never have the opportunity to travel or experience anything like this. Affording them this time and opportunity would greatly benefit them in ways unforeseen. We work with organizations and schools offering to bring students to places of cultural diversity and mindfulness as a means to help them grow. India is an incredible environment to help harness these principles and we have inaugurated this project in Rishikesh, India 2016.

  • Why Donate

    We need your help and participation in order to help this project grow. Every bit of support allows us to fund more and more kids each year to travel with us. It takes a global village to help us nourish and nurture children and young adults to experience themselves and the world in this impactful and imperative way.

    Any amount you can offer will be invaluable and include you into our Global and United family.

    The kids loved meeting other kids in India. There was an immediate sense of connection between kids from such seemingly different worlds.  This was their favorite part of their trip.

    We are a fund dedicated to the wellness and expansion of mindfulness in young adults. We raise funds to bring kids from underserved communities on trips to countries where they experience other cultures, traditions and practices, all focused around awareness and personal transformation. We know that each person counts and if we can make a change in how even just one kid feels about themselves and the world we know we are making a big difference in helping heal the world to become a more peaceful and joyous place.
    The kids were for the most part, taken aback.  Where had they come? What was happening? So many new insights and discoveries.
    We went to visit Muni Baba's cave in the Himalayan Mountains.  A Holy man's sanctuary and meditation cave.
    Sitting with Mooji with the group after a long and heartfelt talk.
    Every night we would gather on the banks of the Holy River Ganges to celebrate life and letting go of that which does not serve us with the sacred practice of Aarti, an India tradition practiced all over the country at sundown each night.  Singing, chanting, meditating.
    Experiencing many different Indian rituals and ceremonies. This one is a yagna.  A fire ceremony practiced each evening  at sundown on the banks of the Ganges River.
    Enjoying the kind people of Rishikesh.  Everywhere we would walk,  we were greeted with friendliness.
    About Us

    Chandanni and Chris Miglino have been traveling and practicing yoga, meditation and mindfulness for over fifteen years. They have four children who have also been fostered around these practices and principles. They always wondered what life would have been like if they had been introduced to yoga, meditation, mindfulness and travels to India at an earlier age. Especially in our formidable years of high school, we are moving from being children to young adults. It is during these invaluable years that our state of mind and emotional well being is shaped. Exposing kids to diverse cultures, tools and practices of well being can give them insight to themselves and the world.
