Has Anyone Ever Seen a Photograph of Rape? - WUNDANYI
My project is about creating a conversation which engages with rural villages in Kenya about rape and defilement. It begins in a small village in Taita Taveta County called Wundanyi. Around 62,340 people reside in this village. 3 to 4 cases of rape and defilement are reported every month to the Police Station, these are cases which are considered old or cold cases as they were not reported immediately, furthermore, the police state that there are many cases of this nature that go unreported. The community choose to ignore these topics because of myths, taboo and often stigmatise, stereotype and ostracise survivors of rape. My project engages with such communities, to help create safe spaces for survivors to be heard.
