The Speakers

Program Manager,
Freely in Hope, Kenya

Born and raised in Kibera, East Africa’s largest slum, Lydia has experienced the effects of sexual violence, lack of education, and poverty first-hand. Now, as Freely in Hope’s Program Manager, she coordinates, designs, and implements programs that exemplify best practices on ending the cycle of sexual violence. She loves seeing survivors unlock and fully live out their potential. As a survivor of child sexual abuse, Lydia will be sharing best practices and community-driven solutions for ending sexual violence in the community.


Magdalene holds a BA in Community Development. In addition to designing, leading, and developing the strategy of programs at Freely in Hope, she has worked with organizations including Poetice and Young Women’s Christian Association. From Zambia, Kenya, South Africa, and the United States, Magdalene has worked in multiple countries and cultures to share her story as a survivor of sexual violence and forced prostitution. From her own story of brokenness, she desires to give other girls life, hope, and an undying smile.


Joan’s great passion is working with people who have been through traumatic experiences. She supports their journeys toward healing—ultimately helping them rediscover themselves as strong dignified individuals. She believes in empowering survivors through varied
trauma-informed interventions, to help raise the next generation of survivor-leaders who will champion the end of violence. Joan graduated Magna Cum Laude from Daystar University (Kenya) with a Bachelor’s
Degree in Psychology. She is certified in various therapy modalities including TF-CBT and TRE®.

It takes every single one of us to end the cycle of sexual violence.

the Advocates Connect consortium connects global
