ART AND ABOLITION EXISTS TO HEAL, EMPOWER, AND PROTECT YOUNG GIRLS IN KENYA WHO HAVE SURVIVED SEXUAL VIOLENCE AS A RESULT OF POVERTY. WE DO THIS THROUGH ART THERAPY, EDUCATION, FOSTER CARE AND ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT.
Over time Brittanie realized that she is most fulfilled by pursuing art and it’s healing qualities while working to abolish child sex slavery at the same time. She then founded Art & Abolition, which is a marriage of the two. Her heart is to see survivors liberated, fully healed, and empowered to live wholesome, creative, and colorful lives. She also enjoys singing, brunching, reading, traveling, worship, and dancing. When she’s not dreaming of a rape-free world she is probably dreaming of a world where every night is girls night with her best girlfriends having girl talk, drinking wine, and laughing until the sun comes up.
Brittanie has joyfully given her life to restore justice to oppressed persons in marginalized and impoverished communities, and lives to see the power of Love bring freedom, equity, joy, and creativity. After years of performing arts training and performing in the USA and South Africa, Brittanie began her work by launching a theatre program in South Africa which allowed children suffering from trauma to find healing through the arts. After seeing several children complete that program successfully, Brittanie moved to Mtwapa, Kenya and served as the house manager for a rescue and rehabilitation home for child survivors of sex slavery. She also served as a coordinator of a campaign in primary schools aimed at preventing child prostitution before it starts.
