Rwanda + Komera 2018
Souljourn Yoga founder Jordan Ashley and Reiki master/yoga teacher, Joanne Silver, led the adventure of a lifetime exploring the rich and diverse country of Rwanda, the “land of a thousand hills.” We experienced a full cultural immersion from a game drive in Akagera National Park and monkey trekking in Nyungwe Forest National Park, to hiking in Volcanoes National Park and boat riding on Lake Kivu. We supported the girls of Komera , whose aim is to build self-confident young women through education, community and sport. In Rwanda, “komera” means “be strong, have courage”. New York Times included Rwanda in their 52 Places to Visit 2018 article.
