*** VISION & MISSION
Africa Yoga Project educates, empowers, elevates and employs youth from Africa using the transformational practice of yoga. Our vision is to create opportunities for youth to step into their greatness, become self-sustaining and leaders in their communities.HISTORY
The Africa Yoga Project organization began in 2007 with three questions:
- Could yoga positively transform lives across race, nationality, age, gender and economic status?
- Would yoga be valued when offered at no cost to the student?
- Can people who are struggling to survive, who live in an unstable environment, and who have little food to eat, utilize yoga to transform their perception of their lives and their sense of what is possible for the future?
The experiment began in some of the poorest areas in Kenya, where we watched the effects of using yoga and the moving arts as tools for experiential learning and development.
The answer to each question was an unequivocal YES
