...to do a man's job. Help give a new life to a human trafficking survivor or a vulnerable girl. This year, Her Future Coalition launched two new jewelry training programs - one at a shelter home for rescued girls in Calcutta, India and one for stateless hill-tribe women in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Through our incredible and effective training programs we're currently training or have already trained over 100 girls as artisan goldsmiths and jewelry designers, an occupation almost exclusively reserved for men in their cultures.
Our jewelry program is a complete pathway to freedom, independence and dignity. We train and employ survivors to become professionals and entrepreneurs, leaving poverty and exploitation behind forever. We are able to pay professional wages because we balance artisanal techniques with sophisticated business process management and technology.
To promote the artisans’ dignity and self-determination, we offer entrepreneurship training, English classes, employee ownership, advancement opportunities, continuing education, savings plans, housing, and other social programs. Our jewelers are pioneers as some of India’s first women goldsmiths. The success rates of all of our programs are far above industry standards. We are so proud of the courageous and talented women in our jewelry programs. Every penny we raise in this campaign will go to training 25 women as artisan goldsmiths, and opening the door to an incredible, empowered future!
