Africa Healing Exchange's Pilot Program:
Rwanda - USA
Africa Healing Exchange (AHE) is a collaboration of individuals from the U.S. and East Africa working to end the generational transfer of trauma. AHE's Recovery and Resilience pilot program is taking place in Rwanda, where our team is developing a unique and sustainable model to treat trauma and substance abuse, while also offering new tools for building resiliency and preventing future trauma.
AHE will be working with Rwandan youth who have inherited their ancestors' trauma and are suffering from post-traumatic stress, depression, substance abuse, and other mental and physical illnesses. Our vision is to design a replicable and proven model that may be used in other post-conflict nations, leading to individual healing, community wellness and global peace.
