AZAHAR Foundation is an international not-for-profit organization that promotes peace building and cross-cultural communication through Yoga and the Arts supported by non-violent communication, youth-leadership, and other related methodologies. Current projects are in Cambodia, Rwanda and Ivory Coast.
AZAHAR means orange blossom. It is a Spanish word with an Arabic root and is symbolic of the cross-cultural juxtapositions that color and flavor our beautiful planet. Being the first and last letter of the Roman alphabet, the A&Z symbolize the begining and the end, the all-encompassing, the point and the zero. A blossom is a sign of new beginings, and it indicates a new level of consciousness where humanity is able to live in peace and harmony.
