Priyasha Foundation

Founded by Gretchen McLaren.

Priyasha means, "dear, beloved hope" in Sanskrit and Hindhi. Our mission is to bring hope to the impoverished women and girls of India through income generation projects and social entrepreneurship.
We work with poor and orphan girls, slum women, girls that have been rescued from sex trafficking by setting up workshops and teaching them jewelry , a marketable skill so the women can provide for themselves.
If you'd like to support us, you can click on the donate button below, donate tools, or other resources. We welcome the opportunity to partner with your income generation project in the developing world. Please feel free to contact us directly at priyashafoundation@yahoo.com.

My Lord Krishna,

You are the person I love the most in the world. You teach me so many lessons and You protect me so fiercely that I know that I sometimes feel ashamed to ask You for my heart’s desires. But, somehow I do and You take care of me and grant my wishes in the way that You see fit. 

My darling Lord Krishna, I want to thank You for entering my life and for changing it for the better. Please give me the strength to do the right thing always and please help me to deal with the painful moments in my life. I know that You are always with me and I ask You please to continue to be with me always. I will always love You. 

Jai Shree Krishna!

You take care of it and grant our wishes in the way You see fit. I love that, and it’s so true. Krishna knows our desires before we even have to ask, but if we do so humbly ask, He knows what is best for us, and is always looking out for us. He is the one that can be a Friend, Father, and lover all at once.. 
Jai Gopala!

Egypt, China, Russia and Iran’s governments have now all criticized the USA over the human rights being broken in Ferguson. 

What a fucking embarrassment.
