June 19th – 30th | 12 Days
Join Pandit Rajmani Tigunait on a Service Excursion of a lifetime. Together we’ll travel to Cameroon to put our yoga into action. Volunteer and leave a lasting impact on the community while exploring the vibrant cultures of Cameroon and celebrating our 10th anniversary of service in the region! This trip is a unique blend of service, cultural immersion, self-study, and adventure.
Pandit Rajmani Tigunait will share key insights on social development and how we can use this service experience as a catalyst in our own journey of self-transformation. Pandit Rajmani Tigunait is Spiritual Head of the Himalayan Institute, a prolific author, and the driving force behind the Himalayan Institute’s humanitarian projects.
During our stay in Cameroon, we will dedicate much of our time to two projects that are very important to the community.
Children’s Summer Learning Camp
Our Children’s Summer Learning Camp is an ongoing project working with the children who are part of the Learning Camp. You will have the opportunity to partner with local children one-on-one while reading, teaching about health, doing science projects, playing sports, and serving the local community. Get inspired by the transformation you are contributing to and leave a lasting impact on the local community.
Public Library Construction
We will also complete the construction of a new Public Library, for a local school in the village of Tobin. This project will allow for your hard work to be as far reaching as possible. A public library has the potential to increase literacy, bring a community together, and have a positive impact on hundreds of lives for years to come.
Learn how yoga in action can shape your behavior, transform your being, and help those around you live fuller, happier lives. Panditji will share his insights on social development and how we can use this experience as a catalyst in our own journey of self-transformation.
Volunteer with the Himalayan Institute’s humanitarian projects. You’ll do meaningful work that addresses community needs, specifically in the area of education while working with the local youth.
Explore Cameroon’s natural beauty and its diverse geographical zones, such as tropical rain forests, grassy mangroves, and expansive savannah.
Reach out into the community. In addition to our Children’s Summer Learning Camp you’ll have the opportunity to meet and visit other community groups, local schools, and nonprofit organizations in the area.
