In May 2008, Mr Ishwar Ramlutchman launched the Sivananda World Peace Foundation.
The primary aim of the Sivananda World Peace Foundation is the sponsorship and installation of the Sivananda Peace Pillars heritage monuments dedicated to Sri Swami Sivananda.
It is also to further promote Swami Sivananda and his message of Peace and Unity via various community projects like:
1. Youth Development and Skills Training
2. Feeding Programs at schools
3. Walking sticks for the elderly
4. Agricultural Programs like the Micro Self Sufficient and Hydroponic Tunnel farming in the Zululand area
5. Promoting Culture by assisting poor communities to build temples and prayer/community halls in the name of Swami Sivananda
6. To help socially and economically disadvantaged children to continue their studies by providing financial support by way of the Swami Sivananda Memorial Scholarship
