Campaign Story

The Foundation runs 3 programmes working together to create change. The Kidz Kan and She Kan programmes are outreach programmes that educate and empower children, adolescents, teachers and community members on sexual abuse, the law, the role of duty bearers, and the rights of women and girls. The He Kan programme is a means to proactively prevent sexual abuse done to women and girls by educating boys on what constitutes sexual abuse, the effects it has on a person, responsibility, and holding other boys accountable.

The Foundation works to empower girls through Kidz Kan and She Kan programmes. The girls are taught to say “No” when uncomfortable and are provided with emotional and physical support, as needed. The He Kan program debunks the thought that men and boys are superior to girls and women, making sexual abuse acceptable. Addressing this is a first step in ending this harmful and cyclical logic. He Kan sparks conversation about toxic masculinity and its repercussions on both boys and girls.
