Free the Girls & CNN Freedom Project Update
Free The Girls was honored to be featured in a series of stories by the CNN Freedom Project. The stories aired in 3 parts on 3 consecutive nights: Mon Feb 20, Tues Feb 21, and Wed Feb 22, 2012. A heartfelt thank you to CNN for bringing modern day slavery to light through their CNN Freedom Project, and for helping tell the story of the survivors we work with. The response was amazing, with an outpouring of support from all over the world! As a result, we shipped 32,000 bras to Mozambique in July 2012. Since the bras arrived, we’re happy to report that we’ve been able to replicate the results of our successful pilot program and add 7 more women to our program, for a current total of 10. These women sold 2,700 bras in just 6 weeks! CNN will be airing a 30-minute follow-up story in late 2012/early 2013, so stay tuned!
