There are not enough Safe Houses for sexually abused & sexually exploited boys. There is also little guidance for anyone seeking to establish an effective Safe House for boys with HIV/AIDS and a history of sex work. Our collaborative initiative will explore with survivors how to create a Safe House environment that will raise the quality of life for male-child survivors and extend their life expectancy.
Our goal is to design a Safe House, which boys will choose to run to and to call their home. The survivors will pool their collective knowledge; the diverse ways trauma is manifest for boys, what strategies better alleviate significant physical & psychological trauma boys experience.
Early intervention works. Top of every survivors list is to have a safe place to live and grow up in. Our goal is to design a Safe House environment and create a template that will assist groups of survivors embedded in distinct localities, to come together and create safer places for themselves. Survivors are always worth investing in, because they give back; do everything they are able to raise the quality of life for their peers and prevent further boys having to endure profound neglect.
