In Pictures: Yoga in Sierra Leone

While Sierra Leone has long been at peace, many still suffer the mental effects of its 11-year civil war. The World Health Organization estimates there are 715,000 people with mental disorders. 

Yoga Strength was founded by Tamba Fayia, once a child soldier in Sierra Leone’s civil war, who in 2012 became the country’s first qualified yoga teacher. He says yoga transformed his life.

The organisation focuses on taking yoga to the people that need it. “I work on the streets, in the slums, in the schools” says Mr Fayia. He has even held a class on a remote river island in the jungle.

#C.S. Lewis    

I am currently DIYing my own personal planner pages to suit my needs exactly. Hardly anyone has any idea what this project means to a person with ADHD. Hopefully, I can finally organize my life and achieve my goals if my methods are unconventional and supremely customized to me.

Guess who has a coffee date with a cute, young civil rights lawyer? This girl. It’s a shame it can’t go anywhere because I won’t be starting any new dating relationships throughout this whole World Race process, but I don’t see a rule that states I can’t be fawned over for an hour. The only men who ever come up to me are old vagrants and sleazy, old business men, so this is a really nice change.

You know that moment when a married man with children that you looked up to and respected hits on you?

Ugh. F**k the patriarchy.

Anonymous said: But most importantly I am giving you this money because others are inspired and strengthened by your faith, and I believe in you. Your mission is definitely worth supporting. Give a holla on your blog half a dozen times should you be short on funds closer to the start of your trip, I would be happy to help you out if it's necessary. God Bless you!

You’re gonna have to forgive me. BBC period dramas are pretty much my favorite things on Netflix.

I was growing a bit discouraged because I hadn’t seemed to be able to get a handle on balancing a full time job with fundraising duties. It means a lot that you believe in me, especially because I was having a hard time believing in myself. I have renewed my efforts, and it’s my friends, family, and brothers and sisters in Christ like you that help keep me going. I really do thank God for you all.

I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, so I may not be able to figure out who you are. If I don’t figure it out before I get back from the trip or even before I embark, I’d love to know who you are so I can at least send a thank you card and keep you updated! 

God bless you, as well!



Anonymous said: I would prefer to stay on anon; I feel though in time you will work out the identity of your benefactor/benefactress. When you do realize who I am, I would appreciate it if you would see the sum no differently than you would say a $20 donation. I don't want any person feeling like they owe me any more than they owe anybody else. Equal sacrifice, not equal giving. I am in a position to give this money, and I know it will be put to better use in your hands, than if it had stayed in my pocket.

Anonymous said: Wanted to confirm that you received a donation around the 6th July? If there comes a point where you require more funds, be sure to write about it on your blog a few times so that your followers will see it.

Um, yes. Yes, quite a hefty donation of $515. 

I posted a thank you on facebook, but, apparently, that was the wrong social media platform.

I feel like I’m in Great Expectations or something. Will I ever get to know the identify of my benefactor/benefactress?

I don’t know how to thank you. Thank you so much!
