who are we?

the founders

The Children of Panzi and elsewhere is a Belgian organization, created on September 4th 2015. The organization was founded by a team composed of four women with different political sensitivities but having in common that all are touched by the situation of victims of sexual violence against children in conflict zones

The organization gathers together professionals who deal with the psychological support of children and post traumatic stress disorders as well as other concerned individuals to achieve this objective.
