Mission

 

To help women heal from the enduring psychological effects of sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) in the context of war and displacement by building local capacity through training, launching scalable interventions, and conducting efficacy research.

Vision

 

A world in which all survivors of sexual and gender based violence - not only women of privilege - have the opportunity to receive a culturally responsive, survivor-centered intervention for deep and lasting psychological recovery.

Objectives

 

Build local capacity to provide psychosocial support for survivors of violence

Develop culturally responsive programs in collaboration with local partners

Embed psychotherapy within an array of holistic services for survivors

Integrate traditional practices with evidence based, trauma-informed psychotherapeutic practices

Promote survivors’ strengths and resilience rather than simply treat symptoms
