Challenge

Family sexual abuse has reached epic proportions globally. It is not a "secret" abuse, but one that family members go to great lengths to make sure it stays within the family. Fathers, uncles, brothers are sexually abusing their family. Often one child can be abused by multiple family members starting from infancy up to adulthood. Children born into a family of sexual abuse often have difficult times escaping potentially lifelong, damaging effects--some becoming abusers themselves.

Solution

Sacred Innocence International provides victims of family sexual abuse and other sexual abuses the tools necessary to overcome the past, stop the abuse from continuing and tap into their full potential. Through an innovative 14-session empowerment program, HEAL, survivors of sexual abuse will start their healing journey and understand that there is life after abuse. This program will be offered via video and call-in support groups, in-person, peer-to-peer sessions as well as in book format.

Long-Term Impact

When a victim of sexual abuse regains their worth, knows how to protect themselves and their children from further abuse, they contribute to strengthening family values and help themselves and their children become contributing members of society. SII's long-term goal is to leave a positive legacy for future generations by breaking the cycle of multi-generational family sexual abuse and other forms of abuse found in all countries, cultures, and socioeconomic backgrounds around the world.
