This page is about the Kenyan tapping project, (tapping as in TFT, EFT, TTT) which began in August 2019. The project has been growing ever since, as we in the team see problems and creatively figure out solutions.
ASANTE means thank you i swahili. Big thank you to all you donors that have and that will give to this small but deeply well thought, step by step project. Thank you from me, the children, their parents and teachers.
We are formally approved as a CBO in Kenya: a charity organization complying to laws and regulations with a board etc. More information below.
In August 2019, I just happened to start a tapping project with the teachers in a really poor slum school in western Kenya where the children had few positive futures to look forward to. I met (online) one of the wonderful dedicated teachers at the school, who asked me for help via Messenger.
Today, 35 dedicated teachers and instructors within "Tapping Team Kenya" teach tapping to soon ... yes in fact ... 15 schools and 4000 children and young people aged 7-20 years.
We also have four groups of women who heal emotional wounds. They have been subjected to genital mutilation, are widows of men who have died of AIDS and have HIV themselves, etc.
The project expanded into Tanzania in the spring of 2021 with a group of young men asking for help. They are involved in crime and use drugs. (Common with poor young adults who do not feel hope for the future.)
(Swish is a swedish way of transfering money from mobile to mobile. If you live in another country please contact med if you want to donate. We are working on finding a global solution.)
The team and the people they have taught tapping tell about very good results.
Some are described further down in video and text.
Watch the video below about how I happened to start the project. I could never have imagined what happened and all the people we have helped. Early on, one of the team saved the life of a young mother and the little girl she was about to give birth to.
Hear about the very good and fast results in the school work that the children achieved with higher grades, being more harmonious and they dared to talk more in the classroom. I like that, since I am specialized in helping people loose their fears, so that they dare to speak in front of groups.
The video mentions the school with girls who escaped from young forced marriages and from being circumcised. They learn tapping from their teachers. Here is an article that shows that Kenya is working to end both early marriage and circumcision.
Every day, the children start the teachings by tapping. Sometimes it is several times a day.
The picture shows an evening tapping led by a teacher. The children are part of the food project I started when Corona Restrictions closed the school.
60 of the poorest children were then completely without food. The only food they got, they got in school. Thanks to my friends and Facebook friends, the kids have survived since March 2020. THANK YOU!
It was not just the younger children who got to learn the tapping techniques
. Here is a photo from a youth group that learned, and then passed on to their friends.
The tapping project is developed into a food project
In March 2020, entire countries were shut down and in Kenya's schools were closed. Then I realized that among our tapping students we had children who wee now without food. Their parents/cartakers are so poor that the children survived only on he food they received at school. My heart was touched.
So I started a fundraiser among my friends on Facebook. I did not think that the food project would continue in Sep 2021 (when I wrote this. It continues, but we have gradually developed it towards self-sufficiency.
Yes, some small siblings sneaked in too :) we could not let some children in the family get food and let others starve. This project has developed itself based on needs, and emergency situations BUT THE TEAM HAS ALWAYS FOCUSED ON TAPPING AND EMOTIONAL HEALING. Food and tapping!
The children had to do their tapping when they came to school to get food during the lockdown. These wonderful teachers took care of, cooked, tapped with the children at the same time as they themselves received no salary due to the closure of the school.
The 60 poorest children in a school get three goals a day through the bottling project. They would not have survived the corona closure of the school otherwise.
A typical house in the slums where the children live and often with up to 10 people. We have a new project to help the parent (usually a single mother) out of poverty through microloans.
The brave founders of Tapping Team Kenya who dared to learn tapping from me - a total stranger - through Messenger and videos I made. I was also brave. Had not made videos before.
Today, the team expands daily. People hear rumors of good results and seek them out. We reach more and more people who want to become instructors. Aug 2021, there are at least 35 instructors.
What the teachers noticed already after two months of daily tapping:
You know the expression: Give someone a fish for the day or teach her/him to fish so that s/he becomes independent. So food independence for the school became the next natural step. Fantastic donors contributed and the team was able to rent a field and start growing corn and beans. We also got chickens. They cost SEK 50 each and the donors can name the chickens. Iris, Alma, Jeanette, etc. (After their grandmothers, mothers and themselves :))
Potash teacher, tapping instructor and responsible for farming and animals. (There are also two cows.) He has the animals at home for the sake of the 60 children. Soooo dedicated in love with the tapping project. THANK YOU Potash!
Potash with the donated named hens that lay many fine eggs. He wears Little Barbro. My goddaughter. The only Kenyan-born Barbro in the world!
April 24, 2021 came huge amounts of rain and lasted for several days. The corn field was completely destroyed. The cows' simple shed became just mud and they got a little sick before we got donated money and built a new cement floor for them. Now the farm other crops that can withstand rain better, on that field they also have a corn field at another place.
The normal outflow of the river is hindered by a large dam that Ethiopia has built further away from. So the water is flowing backwards and causes problems in Kenya.
The two nice cows are called HOPE and LOVE. They are donated by people who follow the project. The names are chosen because we want the tapping to give people HOPE and Love.
The children are 13-15 years old and go to "eight". (Swedish equivalence.) They have passed national tests with good grades. They used tapping before and reported ZERO nervousness. It's big because in Kenya those tests decide everything. Get into "secondary school" or not.
Unfortunately, this does not mean that everyone will study further. Five of these children in the picture could not afford it. They all live in slums, orphans and other difficult circumstances. They have made a fantastic study effort in school but could not study further. It costs SEK 1,200 per year to study at "Secondary School" / gymnasium.
So :) I quickly started a scholarship project in the middle of my vacation and contacted friends who had given money before. With a few days margin, I got the money so they could start on the 2nd of Aug 2021! YES! Thanks donors!
The good results from the tapping are spreading...
Interest is growing all the time. Parents notice that the children feel better, neighbors and the municipality spread. May 2021, there are several groups of women: circumcised women who heal trauma, pregnancy and baby programs, women with HIV heal the stigma of having the disease, single mothers who struggle, with more
Here is Osoque who was the one I started chatting with via Messenger, and who asked me to teach him for the sake of the children. Here he teaches tapping to Madame Margaret. She is a teacher and wants to spread to her students. Interest is growing for the team has good results.
March 2021 eleven more schools joined
Understand a little more about the terrible things that happen in a girl's, woman's life when she is circumcised. Not just the pain of the moment (without anesthesia) but the rest of life. Article in English from Kenya. They really work to change attitudes. (It's not better to do it on little boys.)
Tapping can at least help in part with this trauma, which women's groups have noticed.
We start help for self-help.
Teaching people to fish instead of getting food for the day.
In the spring of 2021, we began our fourth step: help for self-help. The 60 children in the food project need a long-term solution to the food. One parent / guardian (many are orphaned) at a time (we can not afford to more now) is offered a microloan (SEK 1,000) to get out of their external poverty (no food, no decent housing, etc.)
With the loan, they can start a small business that provides income plus participate in a common field of cultivation with the other children's parents so that they have food.
Terms for microloans:
Zulfa our first parent with microloan
Zulfa is our first with microloan. A creative single mother with five children, plus she helps three neighbor children with no food. Her small shop expands now with the microloan. She is doing her daily tapping and teaches others around her.
The shop that will expand so she can feed her own five children and the three of a neighbor.
In all the subprojects we have, tapping is the hub. The dumpsterbabies and children are taken care of by a non-profit organization that one of our teachers has started. They have rescued newborns thrown in the trash and they support the older children with encouragement, food and sometimes housing. The volunteers and some of the children learn tapping to heal their trauma. Volonteers healing from what they see and children from everything they have lived through. With more money we can expand.
These children were found newborn among rubbish at Nairobi's landfill. Volunteers walk around looking and taking care of them. These children were adopted, and the photo shows the one year meeting. Today they are 10 years old and have a good life.
Female volunteer ensures that the boys receive food and support. If they had more money, more children could be helped to a better life. Our tapping instructor offers tapping knowledge.
Nairobi has a huge landfill. Tens of thousands of abandoned children and young people are fighting there to survive. It is impossible to imagine the misery, the drugs, the crime, the famine, and the lack of love. The school where we have the food project also has a landfill close with similar conditions.
Feel free to watch the documentary about the landfill in Nairobi to get a small picture of the children's misery. It takes large and time-consuming projects to change the reasons why babies are abandoned and why tens of thousands of children move around in a desperate life without hope.
Our "tapping drops" in that sea of misery still has to be
counted. EVERYTHING counts when it comes to doing good for each other. Tapping is our contribution.

The team has more groups, more ideas that they want to implement. The positive rumor is spreading. They receive inquiries and have their own creative ideas. We must expand slowly and steadily. On the one hand, the lack of money slows down the expansion and on the other hand, new instructors need to be trained in new smart ways so that they can pass on to others with quality.
Quite exactly two years since we started, the team has now registered a CBO (Community Based Organization) in Migori where the school is located as we started with, and other schools that are now coming in as tapping schools.
It is the first step to becoming an NGO (Non Govermental Organization). CBO means approved by authorities for non-profit work. The team has a board, treasurer, bank account that is monitored, etc. Big step and we were so happy.
You can donate through Paypal. We always need money :) for new steps.
The team collaborates with a fantastic project /network Peaceful Heart Network. They have been working for about 10 years to help traumatized people in e.g. Africa. They work in refugee camps, with people after the genocides in Rwanda and other traumatizing areas.
I and the team in Kenya are certified in their method TTT (Trauma Tapping Techniques). New team members are encouraged to become certified so we become a competent team.
Peaceful Heart Network's method is called TTT (Trauma Tapping Techniques) They sent their best instructor Placide Nkubito, called "The Master of Trauma Tapping". He has healed himself by tapping after experiences during the genocides in Rwanda. THANK YOU for that gift to the team!
The children keep in the photo holds Peaceful Hearts nice brochure about Tapping: Finding calm and pass it on. My team would also like them to be able to afford such a brochure.
New collaborations from May 2021
"ARHF / Source medicine" is another fantastic project / work for the good of humanity.
They have been working since the beginning of the 2000s in African countries with a focus on healing malaria, HIV, AIDS. In Kenya, they have had a school project with 100 schools for 10 years, where the children heal the body and at the same time get help to increase concentration in school and grades.
New type of frequency medicine via sound, for those who are curious. Follow the link above.
Schools that the team works with will start a medical malaria program.
I and Tapping for Wellness and Change gratefully accept donations so that
we can continue to expand to even more schools, women's organizations,
youth groups, prisons and more.
We need to:
But if you feel like supporting the other parts that have emerged, it's fine:
But I proudly present that we in August 2022 are celebrating 3 years of projects with tapping, providing food for 60 children, microloans for women, tapping groups for both women and men... and other good things from the heart.
A big problem that has been concerning us since we started, and is known by the teachers since forever, is that when girls in poor areas have their period they can´t afford pads, so they don´t attend school.
A negative circle starts! They are absent and miss time in school, they get behind, they have less possibilities of doing good at the tests and the especially important nationel tests that decide if you can continue to high school and then even higher education.
They are denied the possibility of a good job with a decent income. They can only get jobs with unsecure conditions, hard working, low income and not on a regular basis.
They are stuck in the circle of poverty for themselves and their children. We want to break that circle.
We have a tapping program in schools with over 4000 children. During the whole year of 2023 we are re-visiting old schools with tapping programs and initiating tapping in new schools. We have "lost" some schools. Some instructors have gotten a new job elsewhere.
So we are visiting every school (over 20) inspiring old and new instructors to continue the daily tapping in the schools. But we are also starting programs in new schools.
In every meeting with the old schools there always come teachers from, for us unknown schools, that demands to be part of program. They just appear at the workshops and will not leave :). They have heard about the good results and want their children to benefit from tapping as well. We love that the results speak form themselves.
lady in maroon is called madam M.She is a teacher in one of our
Tapping schools.The other one in red is also a teacher in the same
school and our Tapping instructor.
A BRIEF STORY ABOUT MADAME M.
It all started as a normal work related pressure,financial and marital problems. She later got into depression to a point of almost quitting her teaching job.
She recovered from depression but still has stress and high blood pressure. The good news is that our Tapping instructor has been doing this " bench Tapping " with her for sometime now. The results are quite encouraging. Madam M can at least sleep peacefully these days and her blood pressure keeps normalising.
Tapping is just changing situations!
We call it "Bench tapping" inspired from,among others, Tanzania where they have a project where people that are not feeling well emotionally gives the opportunity so sit and talk to another wise human (not professional) sharing the problems in their lives. By listening and giving advice people come a long way, plus they get practival help to start a business or others things.
I love the idea of combing this kind of community help with tapping!
