The reduced interactions and opportunities for connection occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic have left many children and young people without the much-needed support and guidance that they previously received from religious institutions, CBOs, and organizations like Freely in Hope. Parents and guardians have their hands full with putting food on the table and few are able to notice and respond to the emotional, psychological, and physical needs of their children.
In response to this need, we continue to modify our programming to address different emerging issues in the community we serve. In July, we held our first in-person workshop with two high school girls. We discussed different issues that they have been navigating including their identity, sexuality, relationships, and academic dreams.
The young people in our communities need to be constantly reminded that they are beautiful, they are enough and they can overcome barriers to achieve their dreams. We are grateful for the small and big opportunities we have to keep doing that and we appreciate our donors' invaluable role in making that possible.
