Kakuma Project

In the course of the year, our focus was dedicated to understanding and alleviating the profound effects of trauma, especially for the leaders and teachers residing in the Kakuma Refugee Camp who are tasked with providing care for unaccompanied minors within the camp. 

In a transformative collaboration with the Trauma Healing Institute and Crossroads Church of the Nazarene, Servant Forge facilitated a comprehensive trauma healing program for the teachers and leaders recognizing that they, themselves are grappling with the aftermath of their own traumatic experiences that if not addressed may easily trickle down to the minors they care for.

In a successful implementation, we had 10 teachers from Kakuma who actively participated, sharing their experiences and undergoing a process to address and heal from their own heart wounds. The program’s story-based approach and the utilization of healing groups demonstrated remarkable effectiveness in facilitating this transformative healing journey.

In recognizing the interconnectedness of personal healing and the ability to offer genuine care, we aspire to create a ripple effect of well-being within the Kakuma Refugee Camp. Through this initiative, Servant Forge endeavors to foster a community where compassion and resilience prevail, nurturing a brighter future for those who have endured the weight of both visible and invisible burdens.
