If you were willing to contribute the equivalent of the income from just 1 of your massages this month you can truly provide meaningful support to our efforts to open The Giving Touch massage therapy school in Colorado.
Why support our efforts? After more than 8 years of volunteer service in Nepal, Rob is returning to America to open up The Giving Touch massage therapy school in Colorado, with a focus upon providing training and job placement assistance to Americans of need. In particular, The Giving Touch will focus upon providing assistance to military Veterans living in America, as well as to unemployed and homeless Americans who simply need a hand up.
This school is based primarily upon the social-entrepreneurship structure developed over the past 8 years with Himalayan Healers operations in Nepal. Each training will provide access and opportunity to those of the greatest need in the USA, by providing:
- 0% interest student loan (provided in-house)
- 500 hours of certified training
- job placement assistance
- significantly lower tuition rate than other schools
Over the past 8 years Rob Buckley has worked on a volunteer basis as the Founder, Director, Volunteer (and primary Funder) of the Himalayan Healers massage therapy school in Nepal… the only school in the world that trains “Untouchables” in massage therapy. By providing 500 hours of professional massage therapy training to “Untouchables” – as well as to others who are victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and abuse – the Himalayan Healers massage therapy school has facilitated the emotional healing and growth of many Nepali people of profound need, while at the same time providing them with gainful employment and a new career in the spa industry.
By helping us to open The Giving Touch you will be directly supporting our efforts to help Americans of need.
