Global Trauma Project's story

Problem

Conflict-affected regions exhibit the most detrimental impacts of trauma (child abuse, sexual/gender-based violence, war trauma, etc.) Unfortunately, despite having the most acute needs for trauma mitigation services, they are often the most underserved.

Solution

Global Trauma Project (GTP) was established with the mission of providing capacity-building support to local providers who are working to reduce the detrimental impacts of trauma within their communities through its evidence-informed model, “Trauma-Informed Community Empowerment” (TICE). GTP’s services have been lauded by the development community, earning them an Ashoka fellowship and partnerships with the USAID and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

Loan Use & Impact

GTP needs this loan in order to provide TICE services to 250 practitioners in South Sudan, an area of acute trauma-service need. Once TICE services are administered in South Sudan, the UNDP will scale the services and provide payment to GTP for their services, upon which GTP will repay Kiva lenders.
