Missions we love.
These causes are near and dear to our hearts. Learn more about the amazing work they do, and how you can help.
Created by Baptiste Faculty Member and our friend, Paige Elenson, Africa Yoga Project creates yoga teachers and leaders all over the continent, combatting pervasive issues like unemployment, poverty and crime. In addition to creating job opportunities and community, AYP empowers its teachers and leaders with the tools to empower more people in Kenya and beyond, fostering peace and well-being.
AYP offers free weekly classes at The Shine Center, runs a five-year mentorship program for its teachers, opportunities to visit through its seva safaris and much more. Check them out here, or ask one of our teachers about them.
These incredible people made us realized how much we take clean water for granted. Located just up the street in North Charleston, Water Mission is raising awareness of and aiding the water crisis in third world countries. 2,300 people a day die due to illness caused by inadequate drinking water. Water Mission has built over 2,000 water and sanitation solutions through their donations and events, like Walk for Water. To help this important cause, visit their website.
