March is International Women’s Month, and in honor of women worldwide, we’d love to invite you to our virtual Hope Circle Launch!

Programs provided critical resources for survivors, engaging programs for our global audience, and important education on ending sexual violence. This year we reached thousands more than we would have before!

When schools shut down in Kenya and Zambia, the dreams of our scholars started to disappear. But Freely in Hope staff quickly mobilized programs at our live-in community centers. Help us raise $16K in 16 days to continue this important work.
