About us

Chrysalide is a rehabilitation centre dedicated to women in substance abuse (drug and/or alcohol), including also substance abusers who are engaged in sex work, ex-prisoners and HIV positive. The centre is located at Royal Road, Bambous.

The name “Chrysalide” is the French translation for “chrysalis”. It symbolizes the process of change in our beneficiaries towards the emergence of their true inner beauty. Just as the butterfly comes out of its cocoon, beautiful self-assured women will come out of the rehabilitation program.

Philosophy

Behind every woman suffering from substance abuse hides a woman who is wounded and bruised by life and whose suffering is ignored and stifled by society. Chrysalide offers to lead her out of her cocoon, to break the silence of her suffering and accompanies her through her personal reconstruction so that she can regain her social autonomy in dignity.

Mission

1. To treat, rehabilitate and reintegrate into society women suffering from substance abuse, including also substance abusers who are engaged in sex work, ex-prisoners and HIV positive.

2. To take care of any baby and child up to 12 years old living with their mother during her rehabilitation.

3. To do all such things that are conducive to the attainment of the above objects.
