BENEFITING: AFRICA YOGA PROJECT INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 14, 2014
This project creates opportunities for youth to step into their greatness, become self-sustaining and leaders in their communities. AYP delivers free yoga teacher training to marginalized youth living in Kenya’s informal settlements, creating financial and social empowerment.
We serve diverse, vulnerable populations in schools, jails and orphanages.
The majority of the populations we serve live off less than $1 to $2 a day. Locations yoga classes are given freely: youth groups (football, girl’s empowerment groups, arts groups), schools, orphanages, hospitals, jails, detention centers, special needs schools, (deaf, blind and autistic), HIV/AIDS support groups, rural masai villages and many more locations. The majority population of our trained teachers are East Africans aged 18-35 from under developed areas in Kenya.
