“The use of rape as a weapon of war is predominantly gender-specific and causes tremendous suffering for women and girls today in many parts of Africa. Atrocities of war like this call upon us all, as individuals, to help alleviate the suffering they lead to, whenever and wherever we can. Project Air is a wonderful organization that represents a unique opportunity to do this. By teaching women and girls yoga, Project Air is empowering them physically, mentally and spiritually. This is helping to heal a whole culture from the trauma that rape as a weapon of war causes.”
