Read below to see the continuing great work our teams are doing in Rwanda.  This work and the 3 published studies from our work there are what contributed to TFT becoming recognized as Evidenced Based with SAMSHA and NREPP.  This work in Rwanda not only has treated over 20,000 individuals but facilitated the healing of a country while also helping us get TFT recognized here in the USA.  We desperately need your help with funds for the remaining months of the mourning period.  We need an additional $1500 to cover the rest of June and July.  Please help us with this important work.

TFT Kigali, team leaders and practitioners are working hard to help the masses of people who have been traumatized and retraumatized during the 2018 Annual Mourning Period throughout Rwanda, facilitating healing from the 1994 Genocide.

Our leader, Celestin Mitabu, says, “When TFT practitioners serve the community with psychologists from the public institutions, we are all equal in the way of doing things, that is why we hold Hospital badges, showing we are treating people that have been traumatized.”

They work in many regions around the country.  He said, “We are very pleased to share with you more pictures take during our tapping and healing programs at Rwabicuma Sector Nyanza District southern province.”

We also share some pictures showing the funeral of bodies exhumed in mass graves 24 years after the genocide.  This is very traumatic for family members and TFT is helping them to heal.

Sponsored by the TFT Foundation and supported by the Nalaniikaleomana Foundation in Hawaii, Dr. Caroline Sakai and Cyndie and Gary Quinn went to Rwanda in September to help give more TFT trainings–and to support, however they could, the TFT IZERE Center, Byumba, and TFT Kigali. This included TFT trainings for the Rwandan Correctional System, part of the TFT Foundation’s new Rwandan Prison Project.

In order to expand TFT to all the prisons of Rwanda, which has been requested by the Rwandan General Commissioner of Corrections, funds are greatly needed. For more information about these efforts–and to help the foundation heal the hearts of Rwanda’s prisoners, their families, and prison staff–click on this link. Such a powerful way to contribute to World Peace.

Written by a practicing TFT therapist who deals with clients that have addictions and co-morbidity issues dealing with past traumas that compound their progress:

…treated a client for a 50 year past molestation by a parent utilizing a complex trauma algorithm [a simpler version of the protocol taught on this site]. Client who arrived with a somewhat aggressive and commanding presence and demeanor could barely whisper thank you, thank you upon completion. Just as I was starting to walk him back to the checkout area I asked him to tell me again in a couple of words how he felt. He replied slowly, “I feel clean, I have been washed.” That night I thanked God for him allowing me to play a part in lifting this horrible burden that another human-being has had to carry for so many years.
