Wounded Healers in Kenya is duly registered as a Charity foundation under the Societies Act of Kenya Cap (108) with registration number 52198.
Our Headquarters offices are in Roysambu in Nairobi county with branches In Bungoma and Mandera counties.
Wounded Healer’s Foundation’s main objective is to create and increase awareness of sexual violence in different communities especially among the survivors of sexual violence and those vulnerable to it. It is also meant to teach these communities the prevention strategies that will help reduce the risk of sexual violence and to also provide information on what a person should do in the event of sexual violence in order to end the cycle of sexual violence in Kenya.
We train local health workers, teachers, youths & youth groups from their respective communities and provide them with resources to disseminate information to the masses.
We are dedicated to preventing new sexual violence cases through extensive outreach education and training to community members and groups, including schools, service providers, law enforcement, courts and judges, faith communities, cultural groups, and many more.
We use a confidence-building curriculum – Nilinde, which is a Swahili word meaning ”protect”. We incorporate games, roles plays, stories and offer basic self-defense skills to ensure participants are engaged and learn how to be their own Bodyguard.
ZAHARA GIRLS LEADERSHIP
We believe that survivors are the most powerful advocates against sexual violence, so listening to their voices is imperative. We empower and equip them with leadership skills, develop their communication, and provide them with platforms to prevent more cases of violence and advocate for themselves and the other victims.
It is designed to support survivors throughout their journey toward spiritual, financial, emotional autonomy, and independence; this includes job readiness groups, financial literacy classes, and workshops that focus on life skills such as household budget, nutrition, health, and family connections.
We provide life long process and a journey to healing and restoration.
This process is tailored to meet individuals with different needs. This care may include medical, psychological, educational, spiritual, and even vocational services. our goal is to provide healing for the future, and a solid foundation upon which to build a healthy, safe, and fulfilling life.
This support is available to survivors before, during, and after they leave the traumatic situation
We encourage conversations. We use our voices to break down walls of silence, shed light on many forms of sexual violence, share our stories with dignity and discuss what needs to change to end it.
We encourage & train survivors to join the Zahara Sisters group so they can use their experiences to educate the communities, mentor other survivors and become public speakers, all while maintaining their safety and practicing self-care
