Challenge

There are over 150,000 women working in prostitution in Kenya. The cause? Poverty. Women in prostitution are frequently stigmatized in ways that predispose them to marginalization. For many girls as young as 13, sex work is the only option for them and their families to survive. This project will equip 10 young women in prostitution in Sinai Slum with knowledge about their rights, psychological support, and vocational skills to help them lead their process of reform and rehabilitation.

Solution

Freely in Hope equips young women working in prostitution with vocational skills that prepare them to pursue their dream vocation. We do this by providing a safe space for women in prostitution to be empowered, educated, and strengthened as role models who restore hope. The women are also educated on their sexual and reproductive health rights which helps to reduce sex and drug abuse and promote safety. We also provide psychological support to enhance their emotional healing and well-being.

Long-Term Impact

This project will rehabilitate and empower 10 young women, ages 13-30, working in prostitution by allowing them to overcome barriers of poverty and stigmatization and making them role models that will inspire other young women to lead their own process of reform.
