WORKING TO END THE CYCLES
OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE
WHY SEXUAL VIOLENCE?
We understand sexual violence includes rape, child sexual abuse, sexual assault, sex trafficking and exploitation, female genital mutilation, sexual harassment, sexual bullying, and sexual abuse within partnerships.
1 in 3 girls will become victims of sexual violence before her 18th birthday.
1 in every 5 has had a live birth or is pregnant with their first child.
40% of girls drop out of the school year due to pregnancy. Most are unlikely to return, affecting their long-term educational, economic, and health outcomes.
44% of African women, or more than two in five, have been subjected to gender-based violence.
86% of Wounded Healers women were sexually abused as teenagers.
Our Mission is to disrupt and transforms cultures of sexual violence through preventative education, holistic support for survivors, and empowering a global community of African women and children to break the cycles of violence within their families and communities.
WHAT WE DO
We provide the tools for physical, mental, and economic healing and freedom through safe housing, education, healthcare, counseling, and economic empowerment.
Our programs empower women and girls to prevent violence and victimization, break the myths surrounding violence against women, and help them feel stronger and more confident in their bodies.
Wounded Healers began with the story of agony and a big scare of a young Kenyan woman, a victim of sexual violence- Nuna. With unwavering determination and support from well-wishers, she emerged as a survivor and pursued her career in Counseling Psychology.
Inspired by how much hope redeemed her circumstances, she made it her life mission to change the outcome for other survivors who do not have support. Wounded Healers operates a girls’ Rescue center and a Healing space in Kenya and Maine where survivors have invested their skills and goodwill to help others.
“We work to improve the quality of life for all people in a patriarchal society that ranks the concern of women and children as a low priority. We believe everyone should be free from sexual and domestic violence oppression. We hope to improve the lives of men and boys by improving the lives of women and girls.”
“We empower women and girls to feel more assertive
and confident in their bodies.”
LET’S MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE!
Together, we can heal ourselves. Together, we can heal others. We recognize our struggle in the struggle of others. Solidarity is our key value of growing together to achieve transformation. We genuinely believe that only unifying opinions, feelings, purposes, and interests among the people we work with will make the change possible.
