Wounded Healers is an established anti-sexual non-profit organization renowned for implementing programs dedicated to ending the cycle of sexual violence and providing support to survivors. Working in Kenya and Southern Maine, we provide platforms for survivors to lead in trauma-informed initiatives and strength-based leadership that promotes and restores dignity among African women. Our community-based approach makes the people we reach partners and friends rather than just beneficiaries.
Wounded Healer's work is dedicated to contributing toward achieving transformational change through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) specifically;
Started by survivors, in service of survivors, WHI is committed to survivors in all of our work. We understand the trauma that survivors of violence go through, and therefore we are mindful of this in everything we do.
The willingness to speak up despite risks. The willingness to take action despite obstacles. The willingness to ask for help. The willingness to dream big despite discomfort. The willingness to stand up for yourself and others. The willingness to be an ally for 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.
We demonstrate high respect for one another, donors, partners, and the people we serve in all the communities. We recognize and acknowledge the strength that comes from diversity. We value all people equally and treat others as we would like to be treated.
We recognize that ending violence against women, youth, and children will require energy, support, and commitment from multiple groups in our society. We are part of an extensive network of people active against violence. Thus our work cannot be separated from the awareness and repudiation of sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, discrimination against people with disabilities, and other forms of oppression.
