SASP Culturally Specific Chapter from the 2016 Biennial Report to Congress
Read about program accomplishments from July 2013 - June 2015 and hear from grantees in their own words.
Sauti Yetu served 30 victims by providing short-term crisis intervention, 12-14 weeks of cognitive behavioral therapy, and advocacy and interpretation. These services would not have been possible without the SASP-CS funding. In addition to the services, we have been able to conduct language-specific outreach in Fulani, Soninke, Bambara, Mandingo, and Moore, just to mention a few. Clients tell us that hearing of services in their own languages has reduced their isolation and the stigma of speaking out against sexual assault.
