Train Caregivers to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse

Project Report | Mar 2, 2023
Healing the world starts with healing our pain

By Trizah Gakwa | Strategic Growth Director

Our courageous community of survivor leaders designs and leads powerful solutions that are ending sexual violence in their communities. Our program which trains parents and caregivers to prevent and respond to sexual abuse was designed out of the need to engage all stakeholders in the fight against child sexual abuse.

This much-needed resource was born from the pain that the survivors in our community have gone through. 90% of us were abused as children and our parents and caregivers either didn't know it had happened or even when they did, they didn't have the right information and resources to protect us or support our healing.

So the bulk of our work focuses on our own healing from past trauma so that we are whole enough to bring healing to the world. We facilitated a retreat for all the survivor leaders in our community to lean into the pain from our past and allow it to heal within loving relationships and community and with trauma-informed supportive resources.

Thank you for your support that allows us to provide healing support for our community which is providing resources to families to keep children safe from the very pain they went through.
