“This experience was so much more than I had expected. The professionalism around a difficult topic, the caring and supports in place for participants went beyond what I could have imagined. The yoga was again very professional, therapeutic but most of all fun! We became life long friends bonded by this mission and I believe that we will all come home and make a difference here in our communities as well.” – 109 participant
The goal of this trip was to raise awareness about sexual violence both in our own communities and in the war thorn country of The Congo. We wanted to dig deeper into this much too obscure subject and learn what it actually is, how we can detect it and how we get over it to rise stronger. On top of supporting our Swedish partner PMU in raising awareness about sexual violence in The Congo and the work that’s being done at the Panzi Hospital, we created a safe space to share our stories and feel empowered.
