Summary

This project will provide trauma healing for thousands of survivors of trauma across Nepal - where poverty, abuse, human trafficking, and the effects of the 2015 earthquakes impact entire communities, leading to cycles of vulnerability and harm. We will train over 1,000 teachers, caregivers, and local leaders per year to become Healing Advocates - so they can disrupt cycles of trauma and harm and create a new legacy of healing and resilience for nearly 30,000 survivors across the region.

Challenge

The effects of trauma can impede a survivor's ability to focus in school, care for children, have healthy relationships, earn an income, and live a productive life. Worse yet, the impacts transfer from person to person, and generation to generation - fueling fear, hate, oppression, and violence in our families, communities, and institutions.

Solution

We are building the capacity of local communities to heal trauma by equipping leaders with skills in counseling, emotional first aid, and advocacy skills to break cycles of harm. Our first Healing Hub was launched in Nepal in 2019. This project will help us provide mental health education to leaders across the country, so they can support survivors of poverty, disaster, violence, and abuse, to heal and unlock their potential to become Healing Advocates and community leaders.

Long-Term Impact

Long-term effect will be a decrease in symptoms of trauma at the individual and collective level - thereby disrupting cycles of trauma and harm to self and others. Survivors will gain tools to transform from victims to self-empowered leaders. Given the ripple effect of healing trauma, we aim to train over 1,000 teachers and other community leaders per year, who will then support 30,000 survivors to heal and transform their lives.
