Reviews for T E N Charities
There is an incredible mission and purpose within this organization. It is particularly impression how much of their funding goes directly to survivors.
TEN Charities provides programming that positevly impacts the course of many women's lives. The board and Founder hold the highest integrity in program, and engage many volunteers in their mission. Perhaps in the future TEN Charities can gain more interest and impact even more women and children to rescue them from the path they are on! This is a mission that affects all of us, as we all need to know and do something about slavery today.
I love this organization. They are lean and serious, and you can see the effects of their work everywhere. I have sponsored a child for the past 9 years, and I have come to know her through the consistent letters and reports I receive. I donated to the "Raise the Roof" campaign and got to witness a new shelter home built in a very vulnerable border area in India. In short, what I find is that when I give, I see results, and I feel good about where my dollars are going. In addition, all the communications and posts from this organization are uplifting, hopeful, forward-oriented. It is clear that the survivors of trafficking and other violence are at the center of this organization's planning and programming, and they are respected and honored as partners, not objects of "charity." In short, this nonprofit has my highest rating and it is the one I give to over and over again.
When I am working for/with Made By Survivors, I feel it is the best time I spend on this earth--aside from raising my own daughter. The founders and staff are all completely committed, as Sarah says, they all go "all in," living their commitment to ending slavery. Working with survivors has been one of the greatest gifts of my life--I have learned so much about resilience, strength, and grace. I will fight the scourge of sex slavery and exploitation until my dying day, but it's so much better having such an amazing group of people to do it with, through an organization that is so very solid, ethical, and visionary.

Made by Survivors does an amazing job, supporting the rescue of many women subjected to human trafficking, and playing a key role in their rehabilitation and reentry into society. Through Made by Survivor's vocational training programs, the women have obtained real skills allowing them to make money for themselves, receive an education, and gain confidence.
My recent service trip to India in support of Animal People Alliance exceeded my expectations in every way. I learned so much about the challenges related to animal welfare as well as the human rights crimes that many young and impoverished people are vulnerable to and actually met some of the survivors that have been helped by APA and the parent organization, Made by Survivors. It was an inspiring and motivating experience to see such great work being done and at the same time learn about the people, language, food and culture of India. The trip was well planned and executed and we really enjoyed the other people on the trip as well as our APA guides and staff - truly made for an even more special and once in a lifetime experience. We hope to continue to support the organization as they grow and expand their scope. My company has a 40 hour volunteer program so I was able to donate some of my work time to the trip and they also made a monetary contribution as well which also made the experience that much more rewarding for me. Overall, it was a great opportunity and we returned to the US feeling enlightened, inspired and in awe of some of the great work that we saw being done as a result of both Animal People Alliance and Made by Survivors!
Amazing products, amazing work i n the world! This org helps women and girls for life providing shelter,education and employment.
I recently got involved with this incredible organization. I have been so impressed with the level of commitment of the team and the amazing work they're able to do in India and Nepal and the neighboring areas. Sarah, one of the co-founders, is beyond smart, motivated and overall inspiring. She is leading the charge in developing the most impactful programming and the stories she shares from her time on the ground provoke such strong emotions and a clear desire to give more back.
Human trafficking is not an easy thing to address. Sarah and her team are making great strides in providing these survivors the shelter, education, and high-wage job training they need to break the cycle of violence and feel economically empowered in their societies. Giving these people the freedom to remain free is an amazing gift and I can't wait for the opportunity to help even more people achieve this peace.
Doing great work that must be done to ensure that each and every young woman in the world can be her best self.
Truly amazing trip with the Ten Charities, Made by Survivors and Animal People Alliance charities. So much so I have returned to the UK to continue to fundraiser for these charities
Wonderful organization! Its program has grown and evolved significantly over the last years, bringing truly meaningful changes in the lives of trafficking survivors by providing them with the training and tools to create economically sustainable lives for themselves.
