It's with happy hearts that we can report Nourish Eco Village has their own yoga deck at the Ubuntu Girls club.
The grils are looking forward to starting yoga classes and self-defense class on our own premises. We have a volunteer coming soon that will teache the Ubuntu girls yoga and meditation.
The girls are enjoying the self-defense classes they attented till now which is every Saturday. Martin the Green Kidz facilitator picks them up from their school in the morning and drop them of at the facility. Soon this will be within walking distance from their homes.
Self-defense classes are very important for girls espesially in the rural area where gender based violence is a huge problem. These gilrs will now know how to defend themselfs and their friends.
We are hoping to increase the number of gilrs join in the coming year.
Last year the Timbavati Foundation made the Wildflower Centre at the Nourish Eco Village a reality with the aim to empower strong confident women. Now, thanks to the generous sponsorship of GKEPF - Greater Kruger Environmental Protection Foundation- Nourish will now be able to offer weekly self-defence and yoga classes with trained instructors to 200 vulnerable girls and young women from the local community over the course of a year.
This community partnership with GKEPF also provides for the construction of a new training deck at the Wildflower Centre for these practical courses to take place.We are happy that our sustainability manager Trinity will be working hand in hand with the instrucors to make sure that our girls gets best this programmes and projects can offer.
Thank you GKEPF for Empowering Girls Self Confidence Self Defence and Skills and to Every Individual involved in making this project a success thank you.

The yoga project is one of the GreedKidz favourite activity to do; and we are fortunate that Cali is still our yoga instructor where she comes in every Friday afternoon to do yoga with the kids. And it is safe to say that we are seeing improvements from the kids on how they stretch and flex.
We are also excited to say that we have obtained funding for the yoga deck which will be put up in the up coming months for the children to have a peaceful space to practice and perfect their yoga.
We are greatfull for all the support that you have given us on this project and it is all because of you that we are able to continuing running this project.
