Apart from all the activities done by Pooja Shende, she also supports some social causes. The below are some outreach programs of Isha Foundation that Pooja Shende supports.
The Isha Foundation, founded by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, is a non-profit NGO headquartered at Coimbatore, India. For the last 30 years, Isha has been promoting the science of yoga throughout the world. It is Isha’s mission to provide methods of holistic development, enabling people to realize their true potential.
Cauvery Calling is a first of its kind campaign, setting the standard for how India’s rivers – the country’s lifelines – can be revitalized. It will initiate the revitalization of the Cauvery river and transform the lives of 84 million people.
The simplest way to make our rivers flow again is to plant trees.
“Cauvery has been the source of well being, prosperity and the very source of life for these lands. A forest-fed perennial river is fast becoming a seasonal stream as 87% of tree cover has been removed in 50 years. Cauvery is calling, do you have a heart to hear?” – Sadhguru
“Every society needs individuals who will go on planting trees without thinking whether they will get to eat the fruit or not.” —– Sadhguru
As a part of Isha’s social outreach programs, Isha Vidhya rural schools have been started in villages (under the umbrella of Isha Education, established in 2005) to provide high quality school education to underprivileged rural children who cannot otherwise access or afford it. In 2012, Isha Vidhya began to carry out critical interventions to improve the quality of education in rural Government schools.
Isha Vidhya’s English-medium schools open the door for rural children to prepare for higher studies and to join the workforce. The holistic, activity-based approach of Isha Vidhya’s educational system, nurtures children’s development beyond just academics, ensuring that students realize their full potential and learn in a joyful manner.
Sharing by Pooja Shende: Contributing to these social causes and volunteering for various activities has always been a wonderful experience for me.
Cauvery Calling: Depending on the number of trees that you have contributed to, you will receive a certificate. This is what I received upon my contribution to Cauvery Calling. The word “Mitr” meaning friend on the certificate really touched me.
Trees are disappearing, soil is being eroded, rivers are drying up, and farmers are suffering. As a friend of this planet Earth, we must make every effort we can in whatever way to keep our beautiful planet a great place to stay for us and generations to come. A healthy environment is the best gift we can give to our next generation and generations to come. Let’s make it happen.

Isha Vidhya: A few days back to my surprise, I received this lovely thank you note from one of the students. This was really a heart touching moment for me.
Today you and me are on this page because we received some form of education.
There are so many children still waiting to receive education and are not able to make it due to shortage of various means. Let’s make it happen.
