Awer Women Empowerment in Kenya was founded by two ex-conflict concubines who had been kidnapped and trafficked to neighboring Somalia as sex slaves and forced labour for the Al-shabaab terror group. In this region of Kenya, girls are kidnapped from their communities, raped and taken as slaves. When they return, often bearing their rapists’ children, they are shunned and rejected by their community and their own relatives. Due to COVID-19, Awer Women Empowerment has been unable to provide the usual support systems for these girls, and they are experiencing increased mental health issues and stress. The organisation aims to purchase remote working technology to enable their team to support girls and provide access to mental health information and counseling to reduce the risk of depression, self-harm, suicide and gender-based violence.
