SoulShine Colombia

SoulShine Colombia is an organization whose mission is to empower and inspire girls and women to believe in their strength and dreams through yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. SoulShine Colombia is teaming up with Waves for Water, a non-profit organization whose aim is to provide access to clean drinking water to anyone who needs it.

This November, SoulShine Colombia will be traveling to Cartagena, Colombia to work with one of the most impoverished communities in Colombia. This journey will involve teaching the young mothers and pregnant women yoga, meditation, and mindfulness helping them tap into their inner strength and life force. Manduka was happy to donate yoga mats for the participants to use. Together with Waves for Water, they will also be going to the slums to bring water filters, and to teach them how to use the filters in their homes.

These filtration systems are portable, easy to use, easy to pack and effective. One filter can provide 100 people with clean water for up to 5 years. With these filters, dirty water becomes instantly clean ā€“ and drinkable.
