SoulShine Colombia // Yoga and Clean Water Project

Project Overview

Patti Quintero and Michelle Frohlich-Klinger are proud to join forces with Waves For Water on an exciting new effort to break the cycle of poverty for women and children in one of the most impoverished communities in Colombia. The project will be hosted at CNN Hero Catalina Escobar's JUANFE, a non-profit organization that addresses the high rates of infant mortality and teen pregnancy in Colombia.

Working with Waves for Water, their project 'SoulShine Colombia' will provide water filters to over 100 women and families. In addition to clean water, Patti will also work to empower the community by sharing her simple philosophy that we can all tap into our inner strength, wisdom, and joy through the practice of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness.

We need your help to accomplish this dream! Please support us in changing these women's lives and helping their Souls Shine!
