GIRLS AT RISK PROGRAM
The Girls At Risk Program is designed to offer relief and support services to girls who have experienced emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. We provide individual and group counseling, emergency planning, and information and referral services to girls who have experienced defilement, atrocities during the war in northern Uganda, physical violence, sexual assault, and torture.
Our staff is trained to support girls who have experienced abuse, as well as helping girls at risk of abuse to find safe alternatives. In situations where survivors need specialized services to secure healing and justice, we make referrals to our partners in the legal and medical field. The Girls At Risk Program currently gives hope and rehabilitation to more than 3,000 girls around the country – and counting!
