Students from our center are volunteering and putting together the distribution goods coming up for our biggest distribution yet! We are so excited to give out clothes, food and much more goods to the most vulnerable members of our community so they too can have a Joyous Eid celebration.

Theatre is an important tool for education, social & political activism and even for development. In #Somalia we train & empower Youth to address social issues in their communities through performance art. Next week we are organizing a special community Iftar & performance around a production on #Peace organized by Elman Peace Youth in #Mogadishu ๐Ÿฟ๐ŸŽญ๐ŸŽจ

This week we premiered the screening our documentary #YOGADISHU on the transformative power of #Yoga for psychosocial counseling and alternative mental health techniques. In partnership with @africayogaproject @unicefsomalia & @lululemon the screening event included a workshop with @emmanueljal A panel conversation on yoga for mind, body, wellbeing & a screening of our film. We are looking forward to organizing more such conversations! Gratitude for all of the partners involved ๐ŸŒŸ

Birds eye view of our centre in #Mogadishu for women & girlsโ€™ development. Thursdayโ€™s are weekends, but we keep our doors open for those who want to gather & a safe space to do so. ๐Ÿ“ท A group of girls meet for a #Yoga & chat session on the roof. #Yogadishu ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ด

Tragic attacks like the one that happened in #Mogadishu 2days ago remind us that everyday children are born into war & grow up inheriting the spoils of it. It is on ALL of us to create a safer & more enabling environment 4 their generation, so they one day may know #Peace ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ด

This is #YOGADISHU ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ
Thanks to our friends at @africayogaproject & @unicefsomalia we have been able to incorporate #Yoga into our alternative #mentalhealth & wellbeing service delivery! We currently offer yoga classes for survivors of sexual & gender based violence, children leaving armed groups & for #Mogadishu based aid workers & humanitarians- including our staff, working in high stress environments.
Our trained yoga teachers have documented this journey of healing through the practice & soon we will be screening the #YOGADISHU film to generate a wider discussion in #Somalia on the benefits of Yoga for trauma healing. #StayTuned #ElmanPeace

With the escalation of fighting across #Somalia armed groups have increased recruitment of #childsoldiers to their ranks, some even forcing teachers to enlist pupils. |

Putting children in the line of fire, killing and maiming them in the context of an armed conflict are among the most serious violations of international law which all parties to the conflict are expected to uphold. The use and recruitment of children under the age of 15 years is a war crime & in #Somalia Children as young as 8 years old are being recruited.
