Usikimye was the brainchild of Njeri Wa Migwi and Stella Khachina Busolo. They were concerned about the spike in GBV as well as femicide case that kept rising. By forming Usikimye they believed their passion and commitment to help stop Sexual and Gender Based Violence prevalence.
Usikimye therefore mandates to become a one stop SGBV care center that provides comprehensive services to SGBV survivors that include psychosocial support, medical evaluation and treatment, emergency contraceptives for females of reproductive ages, forensic analysis, trauma counselling, paralegal services and transitional safe rooms
We are a women led organization whose services are reliant on volunteer time of the co-founders for the general operations; salaried caregivers to take care of the victims and survivors; security for the safe houses; and paid social workers who do the rescues alongside the founders.
