Qaadira will further organize The Sankofa Circle. The Sankofa Circle is a transformative art-based workshop series for adult women living with the after-effects of childhood sexual trauma. Each workshop session invites dialogue around some of the common themes of trauma, such as: trust, honoring the feminine, body image, self-awareness, boundaries, identity, power an control. Qaadira's project will enter it's second phase, which involves coordinating a six month training program to teach other individuals how to organize and facilitate a five session Sankofa Circle in their own communities.
