Wounded Healers operate an emergency shelter that provides temporary housing and stabilization services, ‘City of Peace.’ This is a safe, trauma-informed sanctuary, sensitive to girls’ survivors of sex trafficking and the traumas they have experienced, giving them time to heal and support services that make healing possible, medical, empowerment, and the opportunity to break the cycle of sexual violence truly.
The shelter also offer case management, counseling and support groups to young women who are not requesting shelter but still seeking pathways out of the commercial sex industry or continued support in their trauma recovery.
Before these girls leave the City of Peace, they get an opportunity to heal, recognize their leadership potential and gain valuable skills they can apply to their lives and engagement with civic life.
Wounded Healers started in 2018 after the founder and other facilitators lead adolescents girls camp (GLOW) in a rural village in Migori, Kenya. The camp’s goal was to initiate change and impact a group of young girls (age 13-18) who grow up in a culture where women’s opportunities and chances for success are severely compromised. During a four-day overnight camp, the girls opened up some of the most hidden cultural violence they had experienced. After returning home, the founder wanted to equip girls to pursue their educational dreams and enable them to have the competency and capacity to deal with life demands, manage relationships well to make choices, and have hope for the future.
Wounded Healers is a safe space where survivors have invested their skills and goodwill to ensure that personal needs are met, and souls are healed.
