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.

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.
