Multi-dimensional ecology is one of the foundations of the Prāṇāyu orphanage. This value derives its uniqueness from the search for completeness in the application of ecology and bionomics.

Rigorously put into practice, it will allow each child:

  • enjoy a peaceful environment and a airy atmosphere,
  • living in an infrastructure devoid of endogenous endocrine disruptors
  • To take advantage of the cognitive consistency of the structure's ethics
  • To learn from the broad spectrum of ecological knowledge of Prāṇāyu.
  • To develop faculties of compassion and solidarity :
o for nature,
o for all forms of life
o for future human generations.


The food prepared in our kitchen will come from the orphanage's vegetable production, following the methods of permaculture and agro-ecology, and supplemented by semi-wild cultures made by the Ādivasī-s, which will provide what could not have been grown on site. This consumption circuit makes it possible to guarantee:

- The purity of food, grown without pesticides or other toxic products
- Almost zero impact on the environment, by the absence of pollution linked to the transport of everything that can be grown on site
- Economic support to the Ādivasī-s.

Every effort is made to ensure that the orphanage has a positive ecological footprint: focus on short circuits for ALL that is consumed, plant crops with the best carbon capture capacity, use environmentally friendly modes of transport.


  1. Environmental ideal

The Prāṇāyu site will be selected to benefit from the quality of elements, resources and a pure natural environment. The location, layout, brightness, everything will be studied to allow children to evolve in spaces promoting health and serenity.


  1. Absence of endocrine disruptors

One of Prāṇāyu's key commitments is to provide children with an environment virtually devoid of endocrine disruptors to grow in an environment of high purity. It is now proven that endocrine disruptors decrease the intelligence quotient (IQ) * of people exposed to it. In India, no legislation imposes by its standards the use of materials containing endocrine disruptors.

Thus the whole environment of children is carefully studied to be pure: building materials, clothing, furniture, toys, educational material, kitchen equipment, cleaning products, staff uniforms ...

To this rule Prāṇāyu allows itself an exception by the use of computers by children, to allow them to learn computer science at a suitable age.

  1. Eco-responsible commitment & reverse carbon balance

The Prāṇāyu orphanage by its rigor aims to impact nature positively.

The criteria of vigilance and environmental care meet a set of specifications elaborated with precision and search for completeness:

- Exclusive consumption of pure foods grown without pesticides or other toxic products
- No water pollution
- Transformation of wastewater into water fertilizing the farm
- Use of products made from primary natural resources (plants containing saponins, clays, stones ...)
- Planting many trees
- Enrichment of the soil microbiome
- Balancing and enrichment of the earth in minerals and trace elements
- No use of fossil energy for lighting
- Use of traditional modes of transport (oxcart, camels, horses ...)
- Use of textiles from organic farming, woven by hand and devoid of chemical products (dyeing, chlorine, synthetic starch ...)
- Use of vegetable inks without chemicals
- Use of biological papers
