Art eNergy Karma Healing (ANKH) program is a holistic program to heal, transform and empower survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. This program is provided by the Innocence Stolen Innocent Still Foundation Inc. a 501 (c) 3 organization in New York. So far we have partnered with community artists, yoga and meditation instructors that have volunteered their time and energy to make this program a success. But we need your help.
We are at an exciting new stage of the ANKH program. The ANKH students that range from ages 16 to 26 have experienced a turning point in their healing process. Some have gone from feeling helpless and suicidal to having new hope and strength. The ANKH program is unique that in conjunction with trauma counseling we use a holistic and artistic approach to guiding them in their healing process. This unique program comes with increased cost. We have been able to survive since the programs inception but we do need your help to carry on. ANKH cannot continue without our friends help. You can help by supporting our crowd rise fundraiser, by donating a minimum of $10.00.
Your support will not only mean a lot to me personally as a survivor of sexual assault but it will mean a lot to the ANKH student that depend on the ANKH program to feel and remain alive. Your financial help will not go unnoticed.
Thank you for your generous support.
