109 Women – Sweden Mission Trip

Öland, Sweden
08/17/2017 — 08/20/2017


Friends! Join Rachel and 109 World’s Social Mission trip to her home country of Sweden! Receive in-depth learning of sexual violence toward women and support Ponzi, a NGO in Congo, Africa.

Sexual violence against women – What is it and what different formats can it have? How do we detect it and how do we get over it to rise stronger? Our Swedish partner PMU knows all too much about it thanks to their dedicated work with victims of sexual violence in Congo at the Panzi Hospital.

This trip is an opportunity for you to take one step further and experience the positive impact we can create together despite hardships and traumas. During this journey, yoga will be coupled with awareness raising activities and hands on work to help you become a resource for yourself, young girls, women, friends, and family members to feel empowered and advance their position in society. One reason women suffer in terms of representation and rights is because people remain complacent on issues that deeply affect them.

Join us and a community of inspiring women in Sweden to get a close look into the specific issue of sexual violence and how we can help alleviate it by sharing, standing up for our rights and making sure to support programs that take care and empowers women all around the world!
