 Empowering Communities 
Through Our Programs 

Our funded programs are provided to participants at no cost.


Our current program in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) has included the training of 27 Trauma Recovery Yoga (TRY) instructors and further mentoring of 10 of those Instructors, who have since been teaching TRY in their communities since March 1, 2023. Our teachers include Syrian refugees and local host community members.

The Program

2-Day Online Teacher Training

We conducted two 2-day TRY Teacher trainings in Duhok governorate (KRI) to 27 individuals in June 2022.


Upon completing the trainings, we began our mentorship portion of the program. Participants had access to our exclusive members' site to further support them in preparing to teach TRY classes. In addition, our team met in person bi-weekly and online weekly for 2 months to practice and give in-person feedback.

Paid Teacher Placement

Our TRY teachers have been teaching weekly classes in their communities since March 1, 2023. 

Classes are being taught to:
  • girls at an orphanage

  • humanitarian staff at Yazda, a non-profit organization

  • Syrian refugee children in the basement of a church on the Turkish border

  • Yazidi children in an IDP camp

  • Women and children survivors of genocide
