Dr. Amit


Dr. Amit is the founder and chairperson of Kosha Foundation (Trust) and Nourish Planet ( Environment & Climate Research Institute) (KECRI) he is a Yogi, Spiritual Practitioner, and Environment & Climate Researcher. Dr. Amit teaches Yoga in many Corporate MNC Companies in Gurugram and all over India. He believes that the real meaning of Yoga is when the Environment is not polluted and you can breathe without Carbon Emissions. These days we don’t have pure Oxygen and Water. Every as we use plastic and fossil fuels which kills Planet Earth and human health along with other species. So he devoted his life to Environment & Climate Research to make sustainable development to save planet Earth. So in the future, we can avoid the Climate Crisis and water and Air pollution. Without nature and planet Earth’s health, we can not live a healthy and sustainable life. Let’s save the Planet Earth by planting trees as much as we can. Because there is no Planet B. It’s time to act now. #Oneearthonelife

Lada (Nataliya) Zadorozhna


My name is Lada (Nataliya) Zadorozhna. I am the director of Kosha Foundation in Ukraine (The International Charity) I am master in psychology, rehabilitator, having been working for a long time with children’s and adults having psychosomatic illnesses and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Also I have conducted trainings aiming at the improvement of psychological health and the ability to cope up with the stress situations.

Dealing with the psychological remedial work, I am constantly observing the growth of the number of mental disorders against the catastrophic decline in the health of our nation. Unfortunately it has been confirmed by the Ukrainian statistics for a long time. Today almost one in three Ukrainian suffers from a nervous breakdown and about 2 million people become the patients of mental hospitals every year. The oncologists and other doctors also sound the alarm because of the sharp increase in the number of patients suffering from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases. All the news lines are filled with the calls for help. Someone has sick children or a spouse or parents. And if a physically ill person is able to announce openly about his sickness and get the help and support, the people who have experienced the serious stress, who suffer from neurosis, depression, phobia, are often embarrassed about talking on the topic and addressing to a specialist, thus worsening their health condition and leading it to severe consequences. Today each of us happens to be at risk to have a sick child or to lose our own working capacity and the possibility to live a full life.

Not in a better state our planet Earth is. At last our society has come to understanding that the health of each of us and of the future generations depends not only on the healthy lifestyle including mental health, healthy nutrition and physical culture. It directly depends on the ecological status of our planet. It’s impossible to keep being healthy and breathe polluted air, drink poisoned water and grow food in the contaminated soil. Today we observe children’s and people’s in the prime of life die, the whole animal populations become extinct and rivers and forests disappear. It is really awful. Our life is approaching the apocalyptic plots of Hollywood movies. And if we want to change the destiny of our children’s and our planet, we cannot ignore what is happening around anymore.

Originally, collectivity as a form of deep mutual help always was inherent in every nation and it helped to survive in the most difficult times of wars, epidemics, natural disasters. Let’s get it back to our lives not only inside the individual nation. Let’s start to look at the world and at each other wider since we’ve got the common home, planet Earth. The time has come to realize that all we are connected. We are not just the Ukrainians, the Hindus, the Chinese, the Englishmen or the Americans. We are not just the Germans, the Italians or the representatives of any other nation and country. We are the Earthers! Acting collaboratively, taking the steps towards the healing of the mankind and of our planet, we will be able to change the destiny of the Earth.

For this purpose, we’ve created “The Kosha Foundation”(International Charity)The “Kosha” word means “higher self”, “spirit” (in Sanskrit –  कोश, IAST – kośa). Let your fortitude awaken in your heart.

The mission of our foundation is both simple and difficult.

1. The development and implementation of the efficient environmental programs and projects.

2. The formation and implementation of the projects on improvement of mental and physical health of children’s and adults.

The simple formula is 

“Healthy planet + mentally, physically and spiritually healthy person = life, harmony and the progress of the humanity”

Let’s serve humanity 🙏

Alexander Fedorov


My name is Alexander Fedorov.  I am the founder of the Kosha Foundation in Ukraine.  I am a geologist by education.  I was always interested in our planet.  Being a geologist is probably like being a surgeon.  Only your patients are islands, mountains, subsoils of the oceans and our entire planet.

 In parallel studying geology, I studied the art of yoga and meditation and became a yoga instructor at the company of Yogaholic India.

 The study of Geology and the practice of yoga as the supreme ancient art of knowing the mysteries of the human soul and body have led me to realize that man and our planet are the only being in the truest sense of the word.  A person will never be healthy, happy if his or her habitat, his home is a cemetery of plastic waste, radioactive impurities and chemically poisoned earth, air and water.

 Our society has used our planet for many years without thinking about the consequences.  Oil, water pumped, metals and valuable rocks were taken from the earth, the river direction was changed, forests were destroyed without much thought about what would happen tomorrow.  Our people had a motto: “don’t think about tomorrow, live real!  Relax and enjoy! ”  Even 10 years ago, Tomorrow seemed so far away.  But today it has come.  Our planet is sick, and we see climate change across the earth, which brings in some parts of the earth a terrible drought and fires in others floods, storms, tsunamis.  Birds and animals are being massively killed, and we humans continue to pollute water, air and land.  We are so used to it that we do not know how to stop.  We are sick, our children are dying, but in spite of everything, many of us still have a catchy tune playing in our heads: “don’t think about tomorrow!”

We have set up a Kosha Charitable Foundation to not just tell everyone what sort of garbage is needed or to show you the scary pictures of animal mutants eating plastic.  In our 21st century, this is too little.

 Our the main task is to change the mindset of mankind, to awaken in each of us the desire to clean up in our common home “Planet Earth”.  Each of us must finally awaken a deep awareness: we are all one!  It is only up to us how we will live in 10 years, how our children will live, whether they will have water and air, the opportunity to walk in the woods and see birds overhead.  If we continue to wait for someone else, such as the president, the government, to be taken away in our house … maybe they will do it.  But we, ordinary people, builders, doctors, teachers, managers and farmers have a responsibility because we are not guests on this planet.  And we must take that responsibility for that piece of land, city, and country where we live and teach our children new environmental thinking, explain and set an example as needed.  By acting together, we will be able to preserve what has survived on our Earth.  We have science, we have technology, we have progressive people.

 Of course, ecological thinking is closely connected with spirituality, with love for one’s land, for the nation, and it is also related to physical and mental health.  After all, a person who is ill often cannot take care of himself, not that of others.  Therefore, it is very important not only to change the world for the better and to help this world and people, but for each of us to come to harmony of body, soul and mind, to grow up in a healthy and harmonious atmosphere of our children.

 Proceeding from this, the mission of our foundation is simple and complex at the same time:

 1. formation and implementation of effective environmental programs and projects.

 2. formation and implementation of projects of mental and physical health of children and adults.

 Simple Formula: Healthy Planet + Healthy Mentally, Physically, and Spiritually Man = Life, Harmony, and Progress of All Humanity.

 Let’s make a change together 

Evelina Tribunskaya

Child Psychologist

Hello. My name is Evelina Tribunskaya.  I am the leading child psychologist in the International charity Kosha Foundation, Ukraine. 

Part of my life was devoted to work in financial sphere since I graduated from the Economical University and, as a result, got Master’s Degree in Accountancy and Auditing. Subsequently, I worked in large companies as a highly qualified specialist performing services for stock market professionals.

With the birth of my child, I first-ever realized that young families, pregnant women’s and children’s are vulnerable to stress and very often need psychological support. We are used to taking care of our physical state and usually forget about mental health. New patterns of family life the necessity for women to adapt the role of mother or for men to the role of father child’s adaptation to kindergartens, schools and adulthood have many challenging issues which cannot be easily handled without professional support.

I have always been enthusiastic about helping people. By studying professional literature and consulting doctors I have been searching for the ways to cure both people’s body’s and Souls as well as enhance their recovery. My aim was not only to help people solve some specific problems but also broaden the limits of person’s self-perception and interaction with the society. In addition, I find it vital to boost people’s self-confidence, support them in becoming more self-conscious, define or reinvigorate their potential find the bond and be more open with the real “SELF”, learn how to accept yourself and live in here and now. 

I was willing to start doing it professionally and for this reason I entered another university and obtained Master’s degree in Psychology and Pedagogics. Nowadays I frequently undergo additional trainings in the sphere of psychotherapy for children and teenagers and participate in conferences.

I work with children and provide their families with psychological support and perform diagnostics and corrective therapy, conduct personal and group trainings, seminars dedicated to child-parent relationships, family circle relationships as well as child’s development stages. Besides I find it essential to raise awareness concerning psychological issues among teachers. The main areas of my work are art therapy and game therapy. However if necessary various methods and techniques from other areas such as psychodrama, gestalt therapy, cognitive and behavioural psychotherapy and positive psychotherapy can be applied in the working process.

Experience has shown that it is crucial to prevent deviations in child’s mental development at an early stage to help them easily adapt in society and to transform the destructive thinking to define the value of orientations and teach them how to think positively and not to be afraid of making mistakes. Moreover my task is to direct them on having pro-active position devoted to self-development and self-improvement and enhance the quality of their life.

Change for the better is real. You just need to assume the responsibility and take real action.

Happy Family’s Happy Nation.
