Yoga of devotion + Dezign With a Zby Paula on Thursday 16 April, 2015
A few weeks ago, some devastating news coming from Kenya shook up the world. We’ve continued to speak on the poverty and the challenges that nation faces till now. But unfortunately, with the exception of the event at Garissa university, none of it is new.
Located in east Africa, Kenya is one of poorest countries on the planet. The lack of resources in that nation is appalling to most of us. But there is hope; fortunately there are people to whom the youth in Kenya matters.
Angela Pashayan, an American from Compton, CA, has founded a non-profit called Yoga of Devotion. This NGO has as mission to reach out to the poorest of the poor. On her most current project, she is guiding young artists in Nairobi, Kenya toward a sustainable life.
With passion, lots of hard work and small donations, Angela was able to rescue these at-risk boys from the burnt down home in the slums to a new tree house.
So when Angela had contacted us and shared her vision we did not hesitate for a second. Our goal for all of our home wall decals is to make people feel at home – and what better place to do that then at the new tree house where this youth is able to experience home for the very first time?
Now you can help us with making the art studio space also a proper home for this youth in Nairobi, Kenya. Dezign With a Z has partnered with Yoga of devotion on a gofundme campaign to raise money for all the supplies needed for this new part of their home. You can choose to donate here.
