About Us

Bonjour, Aanii, Welcome, 

Jacqueline Villeneuve-Ahmed (she/her)

SAEF Founder 

Trauma-Informed Care & Sensitivity Educator 


As a survivor of domestic violence and a survivor's rights advocate, I founded SAEF to strengthen reporting systems for survivors of sexual violence. After working alongside fellow survivors of sexual violence within my non-profit work at She Matters and ZLT Hope Homes, I understood firsthand the challenges survivors face when disclosing their experiences to public sector institutions, peers, HR departments, and loved ones. 

Creating a safer society for survivors of all backgrounds was my driving force in creating a company sharing an inclusive perspective of best practices for serving or supporting survivors. 

Why SAEF ?


Sexual violence and harassment are issues that affect us all. 

1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men will experience sexual violence in their lifetime. Despite these staggering statistics, survivors face substantial systematic gaps when reporting sexual violence and harassment through the criminal justice system, academic institutions, and workplaces alike. 

At SAEF, we leverage technology as a tool to connect. 

We fundamentally believe that change is possible, and we strive to work with clients who seek to create safe spaces for survivors of all backgrounds by utilizing innovative tech solutions. 


Meet Our Educators


We are a group of passionate consultants eager to share our knowledge of best practices in sexual violence and harassment cases, lived experiences as survivors or allies, and unique perspectives as women-identifying advocates from diverse backgrounds.
