Rehabilitation in the Slums of Retiro, Buenos Aires

Retiro, Argentina, September 10, 2012

Sri Sri visited the slums of Retiro in Buenos Aires and met with the school teachers and children who had participated in the Art of Living’s educational programs. Sri Sri promised greater collaboration between the Art of Living and the local schools.

He also met with recovering alcoholics and former drug addicts who have benefitted from undergoing the Art of Living’s programs.

The Art of Living had been working in these slums for the past 15 years, rehabilitating many at-risk youth from a life of crime and violence.
