Giving a woman the opportunity to gain job skills and a long-term career with an upstanding employer in a supply chain of like-minded companies is vital, but it’s not enough to end sexual slavery once and for all.
To do that, it’s essential that we break the cycle for generations to come. That’s why, in addition to our Sudara products which provide training and jobs for the women who make them, we also have a non-profit arm that allows us to provide for those same women across their entire ecosystem.
The contributions that come from our supporters, fans and advocates allow us to provide housing and education for both the women and their children. These two sides of our business work hand in hand, and both are essential to creating a pathway for women to escape from sexual slavery and live in freedom.
With the awareness that sexual slavery is an issue that extends far beyond India’s borders, the team’s mission has grown. Expanding their focus to more areas entrenched in the sex trafficking industry, Shannon and her team are working towards developing a variety of new and amazing products—each inspired by the local culture and crafted by the brave women of the community who are looking for a new life, free from slavery and filled with hope.
