  • About the event

    Since 2010, Freely in Hope has equipped survivors to lead in ending sexual violence across Kenya and Zambia. Partnering with child-centered organizations, Freely in Hope is hosting a virtual event to launch Pendo's Power, a children's book that prevents sexual abuse. This illustrated storybook targets parents and caregivers of children ages 4-10. Pendo's Power centers the story of Pendo, a six-year-old Kenyan girl from Kibera slum who teaches her friends about the power of their voice. She prevents sexual abuse by teaching her friends about body autonomy, consent, safe touch, truth-telling, and the reporting process. Written in English and Kiswahili, children will learn a new language as well as the power in their voice to advocate against sexual violence.

    Pendo's Power, an illustrated children's book, shares lifesaving education and empowering resources that prevent sexual violence.

    Why should you sponsor?

    In the virtual experience, we will share do a live book reading of Pendo's Power, interview the illustrator, and provide resources that prevent sexual assault. We will also sell Pendo's Power and posters on body autonomy, consent, and the power of voice.

    Align your company with an event that:
    - stands against sexual abuse of children,
    - centers the voices and experiences of children,
    - promotes the safety and wellbeing of children,
    - denounces sexual abuse in our society,
    - encourages parents to prevent sexual abuse through education.

    Nikole Lim

    Freely in Hope equips survivors and advocates to lead in ending sexual violence. Freely in Hope was founded by Nikole Lim, a speaker, educator, and consultant on leveraging dignity through the restorative art of storytelling. Nikole shifts paradigms on how stories are told by platforming voices of the oppressed—sharing stories of beauty arising out of seemingly broken situations. Nikole has been deeply transformed by the powerful, tenacious, and awe-inspiring examples of survivors. Their audacious dreams have informed her philosophy for a survivor-led approach to community transformation.

    Nikole graduated with a degree in Film Production from Loyola Marymount University and a masters in Global Leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary. She is a native of the Bay Area and can often be found buying African fabric on the streets of Nairobi. Her vision is to equip survivors and advocates to lead in ending the cycle of sexual violence—believing that they will be the ones to bring us all into liberation. In it, her hope is that the world may be transformed by them—just as she has.
