How your sponsorship helps

Meet Wangu. Wangu is the founder of the Wangu Kanja Foundation in Nairobi, Kenya. Wangu was car-jacked and sexually assaulted in 2002. When she reported the assault, she was not taken seriously by the police. Wangu decided to stand up and use her experience to help other women. In 2005 she founded the Wangu Kanja Foundation and partnered with ActionAid to help survivors of sexual violence gain access to medical, psychosocial, and legal support.

ActionAid has worked with the foundation to set up a free SMS service in the Mukuru slum, Nairobi, where people across Kenya can report cases of violence against them. Survivors are then supported with essential services like medical attention, counselling, and legal assistance.

The money you raise through the 35 Day Strong challenge could help more women and girls across the world access the vital support they need.
