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.

Our 2020 Highlights!

The pandemic was difficult for us all. Overall, it has challenged us to innovate and find unique ways of serving our communities in Kenya and Zambia. Together we reached over 13,172 people this year! Programs provided critical resources for survivors, engaging programs for our global audience, and important education on ending sexual violence. This year we reached thousands more than we would have before!

How Language Perpetuates Sexual Violence

The use of violent language against women and girls is rooted in toxic power dynamics, and if we are to deal with it we must uproot it from it’s core. I believe that the starting point would be to call it what it is: sexual violence.
