Devi Mohan with Qatar Foundation at the Education City, Doha
On 16 Nov 2019, Global Ambassador of Mohanji Foundation, Devi Mohan visited the Education City, the flagship initiative of Qatar Foundation established in 1995 by HH Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and Her Highness Sheikha Mosa bint Nasser. During a special presentation organized by Ms. Amy Johnson, Community Engagement and Operations Projects Director of the Qatar Foundation, Devi learned more about the work and goals of Qatar Foundation, its focus on “unlocking the most precious resource of all—human potential. Education City is a campus that spans more than 12 square kilometers and hosts branch campuses of some of the world’s leading educational institutes, a homegrown university, and other research, scholastic, and community centers. Together, these institutes make Education City a unique model of academic and research excellence, pioneering a new approach to multidisciplinary, global education and enabling breakthroughs that benefit Qatar and the rest of the world.”
During this highly engaging meeting, Devi also presented the work of Mohanji Foundation to Ms. Amy Johnson, with special attention to personal transformation tools that Mohanji Foundation offers around the world and which would be of great help to the students at the Education City in Doha. It has been agreed that the possibility of Devi’s inspirational speech for the many students from Education City would be explored during her next visit to Doha. Yoga, mindfulness and breathing technique workshops by Himalayan School of Traditional Yoga are another contribution that could be made for the benefit of students, their studies and empowerment to handle life from a much more centered space within.
