2018 Year End Highlights

look at all we did together in 2018!

Freely In Hope

We piloted our first sexual violence prevention curriculum, called ENEZA, in one high school in Kibera. The program was so successful that we are expanding it in 2019!



Through ENEZA, we have reached over 1,333 students and children in schools and children’s homes throughout Kenya. Next year, we aim to reach 6,000 students!

We continued our monthly program for women in prostitution by providing life skills trainings, entrepreneurship programs, and links to vocational schools. The program is called Malkia, which is Swahili for “Queen.”

Freely In Hope

16 Malkia women graduated from our year-long program!

 

We hosted 2 Advocacy Trips to Kenya with 9 Freely in Hope donors from California.

300 high school girls came to our annual International Day of the Girl conference! It was our biggest turnout yet!



In Zambia, we held weekly gatherings all year long with 55 girls from Kalingalinga, a slum outside of Lusaka. Our team helped to identify and seek justice for 3 survivors of rape.

At our retreat for scholars, we taught on post-traumatic growth which included an element on developing personal strength through self-defense.

We are excited to announce that 2 scholars graduated from high school and 1 scholar graduated from university! Alice, our university graduate, studied nursing and is ready to heal the world!

ASANTE SANA!
Thank you for an incredible year—we are grateful for your support that has allowed us to achieve all of these dreams.

Mental Healing, a photo series

I was that sad girl because of the rape and trauma that had impacted me. I felt so hopeless. I even altered my name to pretend to be someone else. I had lost trust in everyone and thought that they were going to harm me just like the perpetrator did, I knew him well too.

Mental Health Practices for Survivors by Survivors

As a survivor, we often feel alone in our pain and suffering. This sense of loneliness may lead to depression, withdrawal, or self-harm. It’s important to remember that we are not alone and that there are systems of support available to help us heal.

Nurturing Your Child’s Mental Health

When it comes to children, you as the parent are the first level of support and that sometimes can feel like a daunting task. Beginning to care for your child’s mental health begins with knowing your child and what their “normal” looks like. Use that as a basis to understand and appreciate their uniqueness.
