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.
“Yoga teachers us to cure what not to be endured and endurenwhat cannot be cured"
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.
2022 was certainly a year of many ups and downs for so many people, and even our children's yoga project was not without its challenges. One of the highlights was training a local woman (Cali) to be our regular childrens yoga teacher and this resulted in week after week of really special and amazing classes. But life thre us a curve ball as Cali got busy (post-Covid tourism is now on the up in SA which is wonderful and we are all so grateful) with her day-job and was no longer as available for the children's yoga classes at Nourish.
So we went back to the drawing board and are now looking at partering with another local organisation who has a locally trained self defence coach who would love to not only do girls self defense classes for our teen girls, but also pick up the children's yoga, as working with children and movement is a passion, so this is exciting! We are so passionate about promoting local inspirational leaders from within our own communities into these roles, so we will be working this year to get this going. We are also fundraising for a dedicated yoga 'deck' so the children have a peaceful space for their practice!
Wishing you all a year of abundance, and look forward to sharing with you our momentum as it grows in this coming year! Lots of love to all!
2022 has been so great although our green kidz haven't had their yoga classes which is something they really enjoy the most. we haven't had any donations which makes it difficult for us to pay our yoga teacher and to buy yoga mats, straps and other things needed.
This month we opened our beautiful womens center which will be a suitable and great space for the kids' yoga class.
Please Keep supporting Nourish so that our green kidz can continue with their beautiful yoga classes because it's very good for their health and behavior. We need donations to buy yoga mats, yoga straps, yoga blocks, water bottles and other things.
At the Nourish we believe that yoga keeps one very health and fit and our green kidz are so happy to do their yoga practice which takes place in wednesday and friday. Our yoga instructor Califonia she's very passionate about teaching yoga and she's very patient and gentle with them .Although we are hoping raising money to buy yoga mats and build a small hall where our green kidz will have their yoga session daily to maiting a good lifestyle for them and keep them in a shelther instead of being on the streets.
We appreciate the support and we hope you keep donating so that we can buy mats for our green kidz yoga sessions.
