In this powerful talk, Tabitha recalls a time when she was consumed by an overwhelming desire to do something about the sexual violence and trauma she saw in her community. Trauma is like a relay baton, she says, trauma not transformed is trauma transferred. What kind of baton have you received and what will you pass on? more about her work here: www.edjafoundation.org/ Tabitha Mpamira-Kaguri is a founder and Executive
Director of Edja Foundation, which is now partnered with
Nyaka Aids Orphans Project. She works with girls and
women who are sexually assaulted and/or have been victims
of domestic abuse.
Tabitha is Rwandan, grew up in Uganda as a refugee and
currently lives in Michigan U.S.A for the last 18years, with
her four children and husband. Having experienced complex
trauma herself, she was moved to act on behalf of the
victims by providing FREE medical, legal, and mental health
support. In addition, doing outreach, and advocating to end
gender-based violence because she strongly believes:
“Enough is Enough.”
Her work has been recognized by Global Citizen, where she
won people’s choice award 2018. She has been invited to the
The Vatican to speak about the urgency of the work to end sexual
violence.
Tabitha is currently pursuing her Doctorate in Clinical
Psychology but also practices as a mental health therapist.
When she graduated with her Master’s Degree, she moved
back to Rwanda and served women who had been raped
during the genocide as well as their children. She is highly trained in trauma & diversity work. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at www.ted.com/tedx

    Tabitha, I have been using your concept that trauma (or anger, grief, dysfunction) gets transferred or transformed with corporate clients. I know your heart is to heal women, and the precept seems to be pretty universal, as powerful leadership teams are loving it and making progress! Thanks for delivering such an inspiring and helpful talk.

    This is a video that needs to be seen by every healer in the world. Every therapist, coach, energy worker, social worker, teacher. This is the urgency we need to connect with. We hold within us the ability to radically change the world in the future. We cannot accept things as they have been. We must tell our stories and do our healing work with conviction.

    When I suspected my partner was cheating, I hired Genius-Tracker to help gain access into his WhatsApp which the hacker was able to accomplish remotely without any type of access to his phone. At first, I thought hacking was just one of those lies we see in movies but Genius-Tracker is a hacker for hire that has been able to prove me wrong and also, the services he renders are quite affordable and guaranteed. So if you need remote access to WhatsApp, Text messages, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and both deleted and incoming ones, Imessage or any other social network. You can contact this genius-tracker via gmail(geniustracker701) or via whatsapp him +1 (724) 330-3252 and let the hacker know what you need done. Thank me, later.
