Learn About Uzima Wellness Program

In response to alarming statistics revealing high rates of violence against women and girls in Kenya, particularly in urban informal settlements, Badili Africa in partnership with Usikimye supported by Oxfam, has been implementing  Uzima Wellness Program. This initiative aims to empower community frontline responders with a trauma-informed approach, focusing on community-led actions to address mental health issues resulting from gender-based violence (GBV). Recognizing the prevalence of psychological, physical, and sexual violence, Uzima provides a platform for SGBV survivors and community partners to share, receive counseling, and access mental health support. The program acknowledges the mental health impact on both survivors and project staff exposed to traumatic experiences. 

Since the inception of the project we have collaborated with 40 mentors, 200 mentees, and 4 Women’s Rights Organizations (WROs) to enhance their comprehension of mental health and well-being, improve mental health support services for women and girls, strengthen the capacity of WROs and Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) to prevent and respond to mental health issues and integrate mental health care actions into their interventions
