How does QUWA work?

QUWA Structure

QUWA is a rather ambitious project–with multiple actors from different organizations and countries working together to make it happen. Our funding comes from different sources, mainly the Kathryn Davis Projects for Peace award but also from smaller grants through the University of Michigan, sponsorships from humanitarian organizations (like Women for Humanity and Dar El Salam Travel), and crowd-sourcing $$ from generous friends and strangers who believe in anti-violence, collectivist healing models for women of color.  

QUWA currently serves two groups–one for older women and one for younger women–with two components: self-defense training and a sisterhood healing circle. Click the infographic above for a look at how QUWA is pieced together.
