AFRICA YOGA PROJECT
Founded by Paige Elenson and Baron Baptiste, Africa Yoga Project (AYP) is a cause that's very close to my heart. Having assisted their teacher training in Nairobi Kenya, I've been able to see first hand the impact of the work.
AYP Educates, Empowers, Elevates and Expands Employability with youth in Africa using the transformational practice of yoga. Their vision is to create opportunities for youth to step into their greatness and become self-sustaining leaders in their communities.
More than 70% of Kenyans are under age 30, and they face a national unemployment rate of 40%, and AYP helps young people across Africa to increase their employability and tap into the economic opportunities of the wellness industry.
Whether you want to donate, mentor a new teacher, visit Kenya and support a program, or simply learn more about this life-changing organisation, head to Africa Yoga Project.
