ABOUT OUR PARTNERSHIP
We partner with many different countries in Asia, but for the safety of this artisan group. We can only share that these women live rural Asia. These women often fall prey to sex trafficking while trying to support their families. This artisan group is changing lives by rescuing women out of the brothels and providing these women with healthy work and rehabilitation in a supportive environment. They are given holistic care which gives each woman the opportunity for vocational training, healthcare, shelter, counseling, as well as education grants for the women and their children. Through their community outreach programs, they have provided a path for hope and restoration that empowers these women towards a joyful future.
ARTISANS: MEET ZANG
Hear from Zang who has been rescued from the sex industry in Asia. Your purposeful business has the power to save and give hope to women around the world.
“I worked in a brothel for many years until this group reached out to me. I joined the team and began working in production, but my struggles did not end there. My son was born with an ear that did not fully develop, as it should have. The only solution was surgery, which was very expensive. After working in production for a year I was able to save up enough money for my son’s surgery. It was successful and he now has a fully formed, completely healed ear. While I am extremely happy that my son is now healed, I quickly realized after his surgery that his health had been my primary concern for so long that I did not know what to do next. Thankfully, this group’s Holistic Care program helps women like me work on our educational, professional, and personal goals so that we can continue improving our lives. Now I am developing my sales and marketing skills by representing this group at different bazaars. I am learning how to develop my career goals so that my son and I can continue to experience freedom and establish our independence.”
