I love the work that The Emancipation Network is doing in our world! Creating a life for those who've been denied basic rights. Giving these women hope and love. The women then pass-on the hope and love. It is a never ending cycle. Thank you to all the partners of The Emancipation Network, the volunteers, and the people who continue to resuce others from slavery!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've used the products made by the survivors of slavery. These are wonderful, high-quality products. T.E.N. provides the materials, teaches the women the skills to create products, and helps them gain the respect in their community that they deserve.

Getting the word out is tough. So much competition in our country with other worthy causes. Celebrity endorsements might help. But, spending the time to get those endorsements takes away from the time spent with the women who've been rescued. It's a catch 22.

This organization helps women and children who have been trafficked for sexual purposes. They also help women and children who are at threat of being trafficked. They are changing lives every single day for thousands and thousands of people. Not only do they help in the rescue of human beings but they also help the same people to create a life that was stolen from them by giving them a place to stay, food, clothes and most importantly a sense of self worth. They also help by giving vocational training in different areas and education to the younger victims. I cannot say enough good things about this organization.

Volunteering at some fund raisers when I lived in Boston. I saw what the impact was on the average person to hear the stories of the girls and how it motivated people to do something to help.

Do some more online marketing or do marketing in women specific businesses (gyms, salons, etc).

I have been following Emancipation Network/Made By Survivors for years. Their passion and dedication to meeting the needs of human trafficking survivors is remarkable and far reaching. In addition to providing education and employment skills to survivors, they also work to prevent human trafficking by reaching vulnerable people through their programs and partnerships in multiple countries. The Emancipation Network is effective and works hand in hand with many other organizations in the fight to end slavery.

Being a part of the work that The Emancipation Network does has been an absolute gift. I have learned so much, met so many wonderful people, and filled a spiritual void that had been very much needed in my life. I can not express how much I have gained from being a part of this organization.

I am currently sponsoring the school for a 13 year old girl in Kathmandu, India. The staff has been wonderful with answering all my questions, and ensuring that the money and my letters are actually going where they're supposed to be going. The moment I received the pictures, report card, and correspondance of the young lady was a moment I'll never forget. I highly recommend sponsoring all the children you can. The Emancipation Network makes it easy to do, and the cost is very reasonable. The only thing that would make this experience better is to actually meet the sponsored child in person, and hopefully this year I will!

recruit as many screened volunteers as possible to go to India and Nepal to spread the word about human trafficking to rural areas, work the border crossings in search of violators, and teach English and business skills to survivors and children.

Volunteering for the Emancipation Network is a wonderful experience. You learn much about how to approach women and girls moving away from horrible circumstances. You are reminded these women and girls are survivors. I love telling people about the economical model behind the organization. It's a smart model.

The Great!

that I have learned that the economical opportunities made available through artisanship and education can provide for longterm results.

In January of this year (2011), I traveled to Kolkata with a group of volunteers. It was an incredible and life changing experience. I am committed to returning again next year. I met wonderful staff who serve the organization, had my heart sung open by the beautiful smiles and open hearts of the girls in the shelter homes. In spite of what one would think, that visiting survivors of trafficking might be a terrible and heavy task it was SO not that at all. The girls are focused now on their present and their future. Their love and joy was palpable. I want to sponsor a child to go to school, and am committed to rounding up others in my life to do the same. This is a hands- on wonderful organization. I made lifetime friends and cannot wait to go back!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my personal life, in that I cannot continue to live in the same way, knowing that there are others out there (that I have met firsthand) that are in need of our support. I want to tell everyone I meet about it and have them get on board. For the prices of a few cappuccino's per week, ($30 per month!) we can change the life of another human being FOREVER! Isn't it worth it??!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have longer internships or volunteer time available in their programs!

My family recently sponsored a child's education through The Emancipation Network. Today we received a beautiful card made by the child we are sponsoring. My own children beamed as they held this piece of artwork in their hands. Knowing they are helping a young girl go to school makes them so happy and it makes me happy to help such a worthy organization. I've been part of other fundraising and awareness events with TEN, and it's one of the most wonderful organizations. Fighting human trafficking could seem daunting and dark, but TEN brings hope to such an awful reality. Being involved with TEN has lifted me up in so many ways, and I hope to become more involved in the future.

In my experience, The Emancipation Network is an amazing organization comprised of truly giving people. I spent a month in Kolkata, India teaching survivors of human trafficking and slavery metalsmithing skills so they can produce jewelry and become economically independent. An entire metal working studio needed to be set up, not an easy feat, a language barrier needed to be tackled amongst other challenges. We accomplished these goals through the dedication of the Network but so many more survivors could be helped with increased funding.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In India. I've seen the sense of purpose economic solvency gives these young women. A huge win for them emotionally. Witnessing their progress, drive and creativity was a special treat. A girl who was a complete introvert started speaking and smiling.

I love helping The Emancipation Network change lives, plant seeds of awareness and make a difference in the lives of survivors and those at risk. I sponsor a child in school and want to sponsor a thousand more! Awareness events are fun to do and are very rewarding because we can see the difference TEN's programs and partners make! Check it out on the website or first hand and volunteer in India!

Through helping local survivors in my area and also through the awareness I spread at every event I do - or through the fabulous people that I speak with who want to help or learn more every day.
