There is an air of excitement in Mukono District over the construction of a modern rehabilitation center for victims of sexual abuse, child sacrifice, and trafficking.
This facility will provide physical and psychosocial trauma therapy. This center will help reduce the stigma and suffering among victims, this was emphasized on Wednesday by Mr. Peter Sewakiryanga, the executive director of KCM while commissioning the construction works of the Shs8 billion facility at Kyampisi child care ministries (KCM) offices in Kyampisi Sub-county.
He said, “The rehabilitation facility would not only cater for the big number of victims in East Africa but also provide a center where they (victims) will get treatment, counseling, reception, play and entertainment facilities, plus facilities to be used by victims with special needs such as those that were mutilated.”
This project is being funded by business proprietors from New Zealand and Australia from the Business Entrepreneurial School, a company that coaches business owners and entrepreneurs, through personal and systemic obstacles to grow, succeed, and thrive.
The vision of this facility is to create a safe space for children who have been traumatized and also support advocacy and awareness creation on child sacrifice and trafficking. Mr. Bruce Campbell, the chief executive officer of Business Entrepreneurial School, said, “We are doing advocacy at a global level and to shine some light from a global perspective that we are supporting and advocating that this vice or atrocity has to stop immediately.”
He added, “Through mission abundance, we are going to support a new program for surveillance, capture, and assisting in prosecution to have the offenders taken to courts of law.”
