I saw the Nomi Network table at a concert and was drawn in by their cool front pocket T shirts. When i learned of their vision and mission I couldnt help but fall in love! Great cause that I fully support! The staff were sweet and helpful and explaining the non profit and I enjoyed my expierence at the Nomi table.
I learned about Nomi through its founder. Over the years I have continued to be impressed with her commitment to her faith, sacrificial love for victims of slavery and dedication to a God-driven way to freedom. I am confident that under her leadership Nomi will grow as a force against oppression for those who need it most.
I met Nomi's founder while I was working for an anti-trafficking organization in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. She impressed me as someone who is not only compassionate, but also disciplined, focused, and driven. In the last four years, I have seen the organization grow in vision, depth and scope. I love Nomi's mission, which provides hope for women as it builds economies, educates consumers and builds anti-trafficking partnerships around the world. I'm proud to have played a tiny role in this organization's invaluable work.
