Wounded Healers in Kenya is duly registered as a Charity foundation under the Societies Act of Kenya Cap (108) with registration number 52198.
Wounded Healer’s Foundation’s main objective is to create and increase awareness of sexual violence and survivor support from different communities 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 use a confidence-building curriculum – (Nilinde) in schools to build the life skills and capacity of children and adolescents to enhance their resilience to sexual harm, their readiness to report incidents, and their ability to protect themselves from potential predators and exploiters.
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.
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 so they can lead in breaking the silence and start a sustained public conversation about sexual exploitation, including by teaching about it in schools, community gatherings, and other economic and cultural assembly points all while maintaining their safety and practicing self-care.
