The people, culture, resilience and creativity: Rwanda and Uganda touch you right in the heart. So my desire to let people experience this special continent for themselves is great. Coincidentally, a while ago I met Mike, a local Ugandan entrepreneur with his own guide and safari company Remikable Adventures. He explained that yoga teacher trainings are in high demand in Uganda. Offering yoga makes it possible for locals to give yoga classes to expats (including those in Kampala). I told him about my ideas for a retreat and how I always like to give something back to the country I visit. And so together we came up with the concept of "Yoga Safari through Rwanda and Uganda. We take locals through training with the goal that they will eventually take over the organization and run the Yoga Safaris completely independently. My wish for there is more supply, more employment and more future prospects. A great contrast to how we live here, in all our wealth.
Rwanda: a country that has gone through extremely difficult times following the propaganda-fuelled genocide in 1994, from which it has so strongly recovered. I have so much admiration for the resilience of the people. The country is developing rapidly: there is clearly an investment in community, there are countless hip places, the streets are spotlessly clean, the use of plastic is being reduced, drinking water supply services have been established throughout the country, the traffic is organised, and many women now hold top positions within NGOs and in politics. And most importantly: 25 years after the genocide, tribal distinctions no longer define identity. Everyone is Rwandan. Rwanda is buzzing and bubbling like never before. We westerners can learn from this.
And then Uganda, a country for which the opposite is true. Read: delightful African disorder (according to our norms). The free, creative spirit and the apparent openness helps us to become grounded and free ourselves from our - sometimes constricting and rigid - western structures. The warmth and beauty of the community spirit are felt everywhere in Uganda: the people work together and are there for each other when needed. But of course there are also concerns. For example, how to ensure there is enough food on the table at the end of the day, and of course medical care. Nevertheless the people here appear happy and content with what they have. A huge contrast with how we live amidst all of our riches.
