“Compassion is not religious business, it is human business, it is not luxury, it is essential for our own peace and mental stability, it is essential for human survival.” Dalai Lama XIV.
Help support our Thought Field Therapy (TFT) volunteers as they bring trauma relief to Rwandan prisoners, their families and staff—a significant contribution to the genocide healing process.
A Country-wide Prison System Project
Help us make it a reality!
Your gift will help launch a landmark humanitarian effort by supporting travel,
lodging, food and other local logistics for our TFT volunteers in Rwanda.
With just $25,000 we can make it sustainable.
In a historic, humanitarian decision by the Rwandan General Commissioner of Corrections, a Memorandum of Collaboration with TFT Foundation has been signed to bring TFT to all Rwandan prisoners, their families and prison staff nationwide.
Just imagine how this model would open the doors to offering similar rehabilitation and reintegration opportunities in prison systems worldwide and help reduce recidivism!
A long-term vision for Peace in Rwanda
The RCS project represents a key opportunity to support the healing process in Rwanda. Furthermore, a successful deployment of TFT as a core competence within the prison system in Rwanda, for both staff and inmate, would open the doors to offering similar rehabilitation and reintegration opportunities in prison systems worldwide.
In the medium and long-term, one can imagine taking this TFT deployment model with credibility to any country, especially as TFT is now registered in the United States by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as part of the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).

The perspective of potentially bringing this model back to North America, with the highest rate of imprisonment per capita worldwide, is very heart-warming. Both inmates and re-entry populations, while on probation and beyond, would tremendously benefit from TFT training and treatment, potentially helping reduce recidivism. This long-term vision would, of course, be carried out in partnership with organizations that have had success with rehabilitation and reintegration work, to leverage other proven methodologies and practices in this area.
