Purchase With a Purpose: Check out this great new organization
Purchase With Purpose®!
iSanctuary is a social enterprise that employs young women rescued from human trafficking in both India and the U.S. through the production and sale of fashion jewelry. With programs in Orange County, California, and Mumbai, India, iSanctuary provides survivors with necessary tools for reintegration: education, medical assistance, life skills counseling, and financial stability.
iSanctuary’s India program employs girls ages 15-25, who have been rescued from the commercial sex trade and taught the skill of making beautiful handmade jewelry. Proceeds are set aside for the girls, enabling them to become self-sufficient once they transition out of shelters, and helping them to regain a sense of dignity, self-worth, and hope.
In Orange County, women rescued from human trafficking in Southern California are provided with professional development opportunities and employment within the iSanctuary jewelry business. iSanctuary’s goal of helping human trafficking survivors heal, thrive, and reintegrate is made possible through the generosity and selfless devotion of time and resources from community members, partner organizations, volunteers and advocates.
Find them on Facebook or visit their website at www.iSanctuary.org to learn more about how you can directly support the growth and healing of survivors today.
