Experiences & Trips

Want to experience the Paper Fig Foundation initiatives firsthand?

Through our Yoga Journeys, participants travel with Paper Fig Foundation Founder Laurie DeJong and yoga instructor Emily Weitz. Our daily yoga practice will help us connect to our own experience more deeply, and as we share the practice with others, we will connect across cultures with children and adults in our host countries.

Participants will have an opportunity to share their own expertise with our Paper Fig Foundation team members on the ground, and to help with the work Paper Fig Foundation is doing at the health center and sew school.

Participants will enjoy delicious meals, five star accommodations, one boat safari and one Jeep safari, and cultural experiences in addition to visiting Paper Fig Foundation program sites. 

All levels of yoga welcome, including beginners. Proceeds will benefit the projects of Paper Fig Foundation.

"I went to Africa on a trip with people I really didn’t know, which is something that was very outside my comfort zone. On our first full day there, we did a yoga class with a group of women who had been personally impacted by the genocide. We shared this special moment - it was such an honor to be able to experience something like this. I went from being nervous about the journey, to have this most amazing experience."
