We work for TRUE FREEDOM and prove that something simple can be made extraordinary.
Our solution is built on empowerment - we believe that the women we serve are already perfectly made to be powerful and free, but freedom has been stolen from them. We believe cultivating economic opportunity and independence through empowerment is the critical path to reintegration.
1. Safe Economic Opportunity: to earn a safe income selling bras in the second-hand marketplace. We journey with them on the path to restore who they were designed to be- whole, worthy, and powerfully FREE.
SOMETHING SIMPLE can be EXTRAORDINARY:
The surprising reality is that something simple like bras, can be a vehicle for freedom and hope! Bras are a common item in many households around the world. Many bras in good condition are left sitting in drawers. With our unique model, we allow everyday people to make an impact on a trafficking survivor's life! By collecting bras across North America and other parts of the world, we can ship them to our programs in El Salvador, Mozambique, and Costa Rica, and the women in our program can sell them in the market to make a safe and sustainable income. You can learn more about bras by clicking below, or check out our Frequently Asked Questions here.
2. Holistic Reintegration: programming that empowers freedom in four key areas of economical, physical, emotional, and freedom for the future. We partner with local organizations who incorporate these keys areas in their work with the women. Because of our partnerships, we've seen survivors begin to thrive. Those who have children are able to pay for their schooling, and some have even bought land or a home for their family.
Economic Freedom: A safe home, debts paid, sustainable income, job skills, and inheritance.
Emotional Freedom: Supportive family and friends, belonging within community, trauma management, spiritual wellbeing.
Physical Freedom: Sobriety, access to healthcare, physical health, mental health.
Freedom for her Future: Literacy training or secondary education, children attending school, permission to dream again.
The goal of our model is TRUE FREEDOM. Not simply distance from a trafficker. True freedom is nothing less than women walking in wholeness physically, financially, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

And now, PEACE. Now I'm open and free."
