Women Finally Come Out! Women who were affected by post election violence ordeals are slowly recovering from this bad experience. Through therapeutic sports, counseling and medical support, women have shown great progress. The project has helped them accept the situation and come out of denial which they had kept for a long.

Your contributions to the healing process of the women and girls who underwent ordeals of post election violence is paying off now. 50 women over the weekend were part of a big crowd that turned up for peace building event at Geta area of trans-nzoia district. ‘We are very to TYSA and our donors through global giving who continually support us. You support has made us today stand in front of this big crowd and share our message of peace’ Mary Moraa.’You have given us a good Christmas gift….healing us from ordeal of abuse’ Josephine
