2018 Year End Highlights

look at all we did together in 2018!

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.”

16 Malkia women graduated from our year-long program!

 

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



We held our 8th Anniversary Gala in San Francisco with Lydia, our sexual violence prevention coordinator from Kenya!

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.
From the Freely in Hope team.
