Malkia Wa Nguvu

Malkia wa Nguvu (strong women) is a cross-cultural collaboration between scholars at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Dar es Salaam. The aims of the project are to (a) educate people about the varied experiences of college women survivors of gender-based violence; (b) support survivors' voices; (c) promote change in terms of decreasing gender-based violence. In the  first phase of the project, we developed five digital stories highlighting women survivors' experiences. We are now investigating survivors' healing process and the role of activism in that process.
