Yoga creating job opportunities, improving mental well being in Mombasa
A group of young men and women are now fully qualified Yoga instructors, thanks to a project sponsored by Africa Yoga Project and Swahili Pot Mombasa.
The project is aimed at expanding employability among the youth, using the transformational practice of yoga in creating job opportunities and improving mental health and wellbeing.
11 youth drawn from different areas in Mombasa, underwent a 5week training program at Swahili Pot Hub that culminated with a colorful graduation, which saw them being awarded certificates and yoga gift hampers.
They will now be mentored on how they can earn from the skills gained and help transfer their skills to their fellow youth.
