Mentorship, Guiding and Counseling
Subjection to Female Genital Mutilation, Early Marriages and forced labor cause trauma and psychological distress to the girls. In some instances, the girls run away from home, travelling for many kilometers to Cana Girls Rescue Home so as to escape the cut. Others are rescued just before they are cut while others are unlucky and get through the pain of F.G.M.
Cana Girls Rescue Home provides psychosocial support to the girls to help them deal with the trauma. To do this we organize for guiding and counseling sessions and mentorship programs where the girls are mentored by Cana Girls alumnae who give testimonies that encourage the girls that future is bright.
The guidance and counseling sessions require trained professionals that Cana Girls Rescue Home cannot afford.
