OUR 2019 SPONSORS

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.
