Is what you wear more than just a garment?
There is more to what you wear than just how you look. The garments you wear have a story to tell. The story of the garments you buy includes the story of the life of those who make them. Many, are trafficking victims. We are in a fight to end it. We see many lives changing. The garments we sell are the handiwork of victims of human trafficking, often a recovering sex trafficking victim. Your purchase is a piece of their rescue.
Debbie and I are engaged in a cause focused effort seeking to provide hope and restoration to those victims of trafficking. We engage in education initiatives, job training for victims so that they can overcome their past and move into a hopeful future. A future they could not imagine without help. The garments made in one of our village development enterprises is made by the hands of a victim who is being assisted in ending a life of abuse that surrounds them. Your garment gives them hope for better tomorrows. Your garment is a piece of restoration.
We are now working with village craftsmen making garments, beautiful hand crafted jewelry, and items native to their community. We then work to develop export opportunities so that the profit they make provides a sustainable, non-weather dependent income. Your garment is a piece of reintegration.
Parents who once trafficked a child into brothels and KTVs (night clubs with “girls available”) in order to feed a family now have hope and means to feed, educate and care for their children without the atrocity of sex-trafficking. The wage they earn, the opportunities we offer, fill the void that once seemed impossible without engaging in the tragedy of trafficking. Your garments are a piece of prevention.
What you wear is really much more than just how it makes you look. You are changing lives when you purchase fair trade items for yourself and as gifts. The story spreads with each item purchased. Your garments are a part of a cause to end this atrocity.
