Thank you for wanting to support the staff in Sierra Leone! We are looking forward to creating an opportunity for them to gain additional training as well as space to process the grief, struggles and joys of their work with survivors of sexual assault.
One of the individuals coming with me is a licensed professional counselor that works with individuals who have experienced trauma. He will be able to provide our staff with trauma focused skills. These skills will be incredibly valuable for our staff, while continuing to make them experts in the field within their community.
I love that we can help our staff with their professional development! Of course this supports the survivors at the Recovery Centre, but it also supports the culture of Sierra Leone as they move to supporting female survivors of sexual assault.
Two thousand dollars will cover the costs for the training & retreat in Sierra Leone including lodging, food and transportation for the entire staff. Thank you for investing in the staff in this way!
