Freely in Hope celebrated the launch of Pendo’s Power, our very first illustrated children’s book that teaches parents and children how to prevent child sexual abuse. Our launch was held in Nairobi, Kenya with sponsors including Kenya National Library Service, ICEA Lion, and the Directorate of Children’s Services.
GivingTuesday’s Starling Collective is a global fellowship and experimental learning lab for grassroots leaders and movement builders. This year, our founder, Nikole Lim, was selected as a member of the 2021 cohort!
Pendo’s Power is Freely in Hope’s first illustrated storybook that equips children to use the power of their voices and stop child abuse. Lydia Matioli, our Program Manager, created Pendo’s Power to empower parents to build trust and establish safety measures with their children.
Freely in Hope had great suffering and great celebration in 2020. This was our 10th Anniversary, and, though we couldn’t celebrate as wanted to, we spent much time in reflection to celebrate the successes of the year as a global community.
Take a look at everything that went down at the Book Launch Party where we celebrated the release of Nikole Lim’s new book, Liberation is Here!
At Freely in Hope, we believe that recognizing the inherent dignity of oppressed peoples is essential to the pursuit of justice.
