2017 Transformative Highlights

This was truly the year of transformation for us.
Take a look at everything that you helped us accomplish this year!


16 women in prostitution learned about sexual health, parenting, micro-business, and trauma healing in Nairobi. This program was designed by Maryclare, one of our alumni who is now our program designer and storyteller.

12 children practiced their literacy skills in our program that prevents child abuse which often occurs during school holidays. This program was led by Jean, our scholar studying psychology.

220 students in Machakos learned about how they can prevent sexual violence through our new high school curriculum that will impact even more students next year! This program was designed by Lydia, our first Fellow.

21 girls learned how to value their body as girls in Lusaka. This program was led by Elena, one of our Fellows in Zambia studying Community Development.

7 Freely in Hope survivor-leaders practiced their leadership skills by sharing their stories of hope, facilitating discussions, and leading sessions with hundreds of students in Nairobi. Eunice, our very first scholar now counselor, walks with our leaders in their journey toward transformation to help them become the leaders they dream of being!

1,200+ people were directly reached through our survivor-led programs that end sexual violence across Kenya, Zambia, and South Africa.

#BlackLivesMatter Everywhere

At Freely in Hope, we believe that recognizing the inherent dignity of oppressed peoples is essential to the pursuit of justice.

The Disproportionate Affects of COVID-19

With mandatory quarantine being in place for months now, disparities between how the pandemic is affecting people of different race, gender and class have never been more apparent.

Jean: Empowering Others to Dream

I want to ensure that the system adjusts to meet the needs of disadvantaged women in the community, and until we see change, we can empower these women to be the ones who will take a stand within their spheres of influence.
