GSN offers tailored training programmes supporting both individuals and organizations. Our training programs aim to equip people with the knowledge, self-understanding and practical coping mechanisms to deal with the stresses of life, in today’s world, build healing-centered programs, and 

The three main training programmes GSN offers are: 

From Hurt to Healing for peacebuilders, human rights defenders, mental health and other governance practitioners 

Many organizations are beginning to explore how to integrate peacebuilding and development work with issues of deep social trauma and pain that many countries carry due to chronic violence and protracted conflict. Violence causes deep social hurts, deep collective traumas, that stop people from being able to live fully and healthily as individuals and communities. Without healing these underlying hurts, wounds fester and become chronic: violence becomes cyclical.

GSN offers this training both physically and virtually, as a 1 week (5-day) course, or over the course of 1 month.

Workplace Mental Health for organizations

Mental health in Kenya has always been a sidelined issue in our workplaces. Recently on Twitter, a lot of people gave accounts on how the toxic environment at their workplace is taking a toll on their mental health.

We are all:

  • Dealing with uncertainty
  • Dealing with uneven spread of responsibility across the workforce
  • Dealing with cash-flow problems and economic pressures
  • Dealing with repercussions of covid infections
  • Dealing with grief, exhaustion, stress and trauma

Companies are grappling to address these issues, while dealing with the unprecedented pressures of the pandemic itself. Traditional methods of teambuilding are not enough right now to meet the current needs.

Healing-centered Education for schools

Many students in underserved communities are facing multiple crises resulting in high levels of trauma in homes, schools, and the community. This influences a young person’s sense of self-belief, creativity, and even the ability to effectively learn. Trauma negatively impacts a student’s wellbeing, her behavior, as well as the ability to engage healthily with others. This struggle to become a productive part of the Kenyan economy is compounded with increasing instability in areas of youth unemployment, negative health outcomes, poor mental and emotional health, poverty, crime, and extremism.

In response, education everywhere must be re-examined and rebuilt, but for that to happen mindsets must shift. The Green-String Network (GSN) wants to support your school to provide your school with the practical tools to do this, and in doing so, be mindful of what will best contribute to support our children and our families to recover from what they have experienced in their lives. 

GSN offers training and long term support to schools who are interested in adopting a healing-centered approach into their school system regardless of age of grade level or system.
