Author Namid is the founder of The R.A.P.E Foundation, working to bring peace and healing to survivors of sexual abuse, rape, incest, emotional abuse and to help the people they love understand and support survivors around the world.
I founded The R.A.P.E. Foundation in the hopes to help other rape, incest, sexual abuse, and sexual assault survivors. After having lived through it for the majority of my life, I knew there had to be a greater purpose to all that I had endured. I hope each and every day that using my story as the basis for The R.A.P.E. Foundation, other survivors can be inspired and healed. If we all reach out to just one person, we can have a tremendous impact on our world!
The R.A.P.E. Foundation, and www.rapehelp.org are a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting rape, sexual assault, and incest survivors, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, creed, ethnicity/country of origin or any other possibly discriminating factor. The Foundation will help survivors through such medias as
-Financial support through donations received
-Emotional support through counseling, workshops, books, CDs, DVDs, and more.
-Recovery support through assistance with job placement, donations of clothing, computers and computer parts, vehicles, etc.
-Education and Prevention of rape, sexual assault and incest by lectures, workshops, public media attention, teaching self-protection classes, speaking at schools, advocating for survivors in hospitals, courts, and more.
The ultimate goal of the R.A.P.E. Foundation and rapehelp.org is to assist and empower as many rape and incest survivors as possible, and to help educate the general public about rape/incest/sexual assault in order to create a significant social change regarding these issues.
I am proud to say, that The R.A.P.E. Foundation is affiliated with over 300 organizations and individuals around the globe, including RAINN, The Lamplighters, Perverted Justice, and more. We support and advocate for many people across the country. My small dream is turning into an international reality.
