Wounded Healers Partnership
Kuza Dada is working in partnership with Wounded Healers International. Wounded Healers is a Kenyan NGO and registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to ending the cycle of sexual violence and providing support to survivors.
Working in Kenya and Southern Maine, they provide platforms for survivors to lead in trauma-informed initiatives and strength-based leadership that promotes and restores dignity among African women.
Founder and Executive Director of Wounded Healers , Nuna Gleason, served as a camp facilitator several times, participated in the Kuza Dada Steering Committee and now has created the opportunity for Kuza Dada to grow with her organization's support as a financial sponsor. This means that a Kuza Dada Campaign has been set up by Wounded Healers. All donations made to Kuza Dada through the Wounded Healers platform are tax-deductible.
