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.

Searching for books about my country’s (Haiti) origin and west Africa. Interesting how the book prices range from $50-$140… Very interesting.
