In the last few years, the North Africa and the Middle East region has been witnessing violence, revolutions, conflicts, terrorism and proxy wars that are eventually leading to other political, sectarian, religious and economic crises. Women and men, girls and boys, are affected by conflicts , yet women in particular are more vulnerable but far more influential. Women have the potential to make meaningful contributions as changemakers and leaders but they often lack the means and platform to harness that potential. They shall see the current chaos as a great gift and opportunity to rethink, reconnect, and reinvent. If their authentic community organizing could be matched with the self-awareness, mindfulness and compassion practices of meditation, it could revolutionize how they affect social change. Following the success of the first Heya Fellowship in Morocco in 2018, World Peace Initiative Foundation continues to run this project and support young women to empower themselves and impact their homes, families and communities by strengthening their personal growth and trusting their inner power through meditation and self-development as well as promoting solidarity. We offer you this opportunity to peacefully co-exist with extraordinary fellow women leaders to network, live together, empower yourself and others. Are you a female leader who is actively involved in social work and have the passion for social change? Do you want to reveal your inner power? Then this Fellowship is for YOU!! Heya Fellowship is the first of its kind in the region to nurture the space for women for inner transformation through self-development and meditation which will eventually lead to community transformation.
