About WKF

“Restoring Dignity to Survivors of Sexual/Gender Based Violence and Their Families” Wangu Kanja Foundation which is a non-governmental, non-political and not for profit making organization whose vision is a society free of sexual violence. The foundation is a registered Trustee under the Perpetual Succession Act Chapter 164 of the Laws of Kenya. The Foundation was born from challenges that the founder Wangu Kanja went through after she was raped in a carjacking incidence in 2002. Her traumatic experience in the hands of the rapist, family, friends and the public led to her realization that she needed to take action to address sexual violence by creating awareness and prevention .

My Story

Carjacked and brutally assaulted, Wangu was shattered. Years later, she has resiliently risen above her trauma and now reaches out to those in need. From the challenges and stigma she went through, Wangu founded The Wangu Kanja Foundation that supports survivors of sexual violence to access medical, psychological, legal redress as well as creating awareness.
