We are so excited you are interested in partnering with us! We offer a wonderful way to connect women in North America with the women we serve in under developed countries. Generating an income is not always the first thought when we think of a woman...a survivor...healing from the trauma of sex trafficking. However, it is just as vital as the other areas of her healing process because if she is not able to meet her basic needs of food and shelter it is very likely she will go back into a life of survival sex work. The lifelines to our mission are gently used and new bras, as well as monetary support in shipping those bras from our facility in Chesterton, Indiana to our programs in Uganda, Mozambique and El Salvador. Our programs have implemented our simple entrepreneur-based bra selling program, tweaking it to be as successful as possible in each country. We are beginning to see the long-term impacts and continue to improve and modify the program to provide the best for the women we serve. We are also currently exploring expansion partnerships in other parts of Africa and Latin America. In 2016 we are launching a unique new workshop that better and more fully equips the women to create a personalized path out of poverty, even after they've graduated from our bra-selling program. This new workshop not only teaches business skills but gets to the heart of the matter – reminding these women that they are worthy to be employed, and that they are creative and resourceful human beings who have a place in the marketplace. We are thrilled you've chosen to be a part of this story as we walk alongside survivors on their journey to self-sufficiency and strive to continue to help more and more women each year--and your generous support makes this possible.
