[who we are]
The Survivor Dream Project (SDP) is a registered non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting women and youth survivors of trauma. The SDP provides solutions to the most urgent issues affecting women and youth through community led and driven projects. Our aim is to implement sustainable and impactful social change through an unconventional approach to social development.
Since its inception in April 2015, SDP has implemented the Women and Ebola program reaching twenty (20) vulnerable women and girls who are survivors of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in the Western Area District. This was achieved with funding from OSIWA and support from Africell Mobile Company. The women and Ebola program cultivated safe spaces to access psychosocial support, an entrepreneurial culture through high quality training and post-training support through the provision of livelihood grants and services (business mentoring and coaching), as well as educational support to five (5) girls who were willing to return school.
We create safe spaces for women and youth to work through trauma by building capacity, advocacy and storytelling as tools for transformative change.
SDP is branching from solely being a post-Ebola survivor support platform, to a post trauma and healing mission. We believe in the human capacity to heal and grow beyond measure
Creating road-maps to recovery by supporting socio-economic dreams and aspirations. These are channeled through innovation, art, and creativity where there is a standard of individual ownership of solutions.
Progress is impossible without change. We believe that the change that occurs at a personal level is the catalyst for sustainable impact on community ecosystems. We channel this and use it to fuel our work.
