About VEAW

Mission
Promote individualized safety planning based on our belief that women are the experts in their own lives, through promising and best practices in education intervention and prevention. We seek to advocate that the Voice of East African Women is heard, by bringing the community together to support each other in times of crisis and change.

Vision
Health and Wellness Empowerment support groups, which allow women to share their stories and experiences. Safe individuals, families and communities.

Who we are
Voice of East African Women Was Founded because of an urgent need for East African and Muslim women to have a place where they can be safe, receive the services and healing that they need, as well as connect with other women to support each other. We are a 501©(3) non-profit organization founded in 2012 by Farhio khalif to offer shelter, support, advocacy, prevention and education services to survivors of violence as well as to help create a community to overcome abuse and succeed in their renewed lives. We know that the development of this comfort zone is critical, as cultural and language barriers are severe and severe to dissuade East African and Muslim women from seeking services that they need in the outside world.

Protective Environment

VEAW will be opening the Farhio House, a shelter where East African and Muslim women and their children will have their own facility. Farhio House provides short-term shelter for women and children who are escaping an abusive situation or sex trafficking. At Farhio House, they will be able to be comfortable in getting the help that they need through shelter, counseling, individualized safety planning, and other services that will improve their health and well-being. They will be able to connect with each other to share ideas and receive the important support that leads to healing.
