About the Book

Liberation Is Here is the story of Nikole Lim’s journey as an idealistic freelance filmmaker. Her career allowed her to step in and out of the lives of people who had experienced oppression around the world. But when confronted with the prevalence of sexual violence in Kenyan and Zambian communities, she commits to advocating alongside the courageous survivors whose lives have intersected with her own.

These women’s powerful stories inspire her to embark on a new vocation, partnering with survivors of sexual violence to launch Freely in Hope—a nonprofit organization that equips survivors of sexual violence to lead through their rewritten stories.

But as Lim embarks on the journey towards liberation with the survivors she serves, her perspective is radically altered. Exhausted and deathly ill, she witnesses how these young women become her healers—the once oppressed become her liberators.

From the slums of Nairobi, hospitals of Lusaka, killing fields of Kigali, and the back alleys of Barcelona, Lim weaves together stories presenting a narrative of God’s grace and healing amid fear and trauma. Her journey proves that liberation is not just near, but it is here—in the eyes of the broken, the hearts of the oppressed, and the untold stories of our global community.

celebrate the stories of Freely in hope at our virtual book launch party!

At the party, you’ll learn about the formation of Liberation is Here, engage with Freely in Hope’s international staff, and celebrate with Nikole Lim and special guests!

ABOUT FREELY IN HOPE

TEN YEARS AGO, WE BEGAN TO ENVISION A WORLD THAT WAS FREE OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE.

Through the powerfully transformative stories of survivors of sexual violence, we equipped their dreams through education, leadership, and storytelling—creating a platform for their voices which were full of beauty amidst brokenness. Deep within the slums across Kenya, we learned of the plight of girls and young women affected by sexual violence. Their courage, tenacity, and hope inspire us daily. Their dreams have become ours.

Their dreams of arising from violent oppression, achieving their educational goals, and encouraging others through their rewritten stories drive our programs. We provide holistic education, helping our university scholars achieve degrees in law, counseling psychology, broadcast journalism, business, and education. We equip survivors and advocates to lead through our Leadership Development programs. Our Storytelling Platforms support over 3,000 people across Kenya, Zambia, and South Africa by providing a safe space for women and girls to learn about leadership, trauma healing, spiritual formation, legal rights, entrepreneurship, and violence prevention.

We invite you to join us in the fight against sexual violence—celebrating and equipping the dreams of the young women of Freely in Hope. May their dreams become yours as well.
