Eneza, our program that teaches high school kids on sexual violence prevention, kicked off a few weeks ago! We are having some pretty intense conversations in the high schools on consent, the definition on sexual violence, and causes of sexual violence.
We asked our students to discuss the root causes of sexual violence and one group answered, "What a girl wears." We asked who else agrees with this, and the whole class raised their hands. But one male student disagreed and surprised us all!
Justice took a stance against victim-blaming and after he shared, many in the classroom also agreed with him. This is what it looks like to be an advocate against sexual violence and we are seeing young leaders rise up to the challenge!
Eneza is starting to create a ripple effect of change in our high schools in Kibera! Thanks for your support!

Growing Academically through mobile Tech!
By Nikole Lim - International Director
Freely in Hope is excited to partner with Eneza Education to better support the academic growth of our high school scholars! By harnessing the power of mobile technology, Eneza Education reaches rural communities by offering tutoring programs through text. The platform even has an "Ask a Teacher" feature which allows students to text questions directly to teachers.
We are excited to partner with Eneza Education to increase the academic growth of our high school scholars! Your donation is helping our students with tuition fees, counseling, safe housing, health care, and now academic tutoring through mobile technology!
Thank you for supporting the holistic growth of survivors of sexual violence.

The Students Shall Lead Us
By Lydia - Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator
Students in our Sexual Violence Prevention Program
We are constantly amazed with the sponsored students in our high school program. As our high school students graduate from high school, they enter our leadership development programs that train them on facilitation, public speaking, and sexual violence prevention. Equipped with knowledge, these survivor-leaders go out into the communities to teach on sexual violence prevention in their communities!
Your donation is not just providing an education, but it is also providing leadership skills so that they can build a better tomorrow. I believe that if every single one of us stands together, we can create a new normal— one that provides platforms for women and girls to lead in our world.
