Where we work in Kenya, climate change is wreaking havoc on the lives of women who depend on the land. On our recent trip to visit our local partner organization, we learned more about the solutions women create.
MADRE and our local partners at Taller de Vida offer healing programs for former child soldiers and sexual violence survivors in Colombia. Through our workshops, young survivors of Colombia’s decades-long war receive art therapy and counseling.
To help people learn more about their rights, MADRE developed comic strips for Syrian and Iraqi refugees. The comic strips aim to address a common issue for refugees and displaced people — they don’t have official identity documents and, because of it, cannot access humanitarian aid and other crucial resources.
