The resilience program grew out of our work with the Kenya Child Care Foundation. In Kilifi, we shelter children who are victims of (sexual) abuse, neglect and/or maltreatment. This is important and valuable work. But how wonderful would it be if we could reach these children earlier to make them strong and resilient? In this way, we make it much less likely that they will find themselves in such a threatening situation.
In some cases we can’t prevent it but we can teach children how to deal with it as best we can.
In the longer term, our program provides:
➙ fewer youth victims of sexual violence
➙ fewer unwanted pregnancies
➙ fewer high school dropouts
➙ less drug use
➙ less crime
In other words, a powerful and strong society.
