Pigs + Pugs Project

Tranquil Space Foundation’s second signature program has been in parallel development since 2016. The new program is a part of the Foundation’s shift to animal welfare issues. The Pigs & Pugs Project (PPP) raises awareness, educates the public, and helps to fund pig sanctuaries and pug rescues throughout the United States. The program launched in 2017 with microgrants for pug rescues and pig sanctuaries.



Tranquil Space Foundation’s signature program during its first decade was TranquilTeens: Stretch Yourself. TranquilTeens is a blend of mindfulness, creative activities, and leadership development designed to help girls 9th – 12th grade build healthy bodies and strong self-esteem. This program has been taught to over 600 girls in the Washington, D.C. area since 2007 by a team of volunteers and is currently being converted to an online program where we hope to serve many more women and girls. We have concluded the transition from our focus on “mindfulness, creativity, leadership” for our programming modules and have released an eight-week facilitator’s toolkit.
