My daughter in law is very involved with Made by Survivors. She introduced me to the plight of these young girls and the wonderful workmanship they do. I am a proud recipient just recently of a beautiful necklace and Sarah Sympns book... This is no ordinary joy.... What a wonderful book. A real eye opener. Last Christmas I purchased three necklaces for gifts and I'm ready to order earrings and necklaces for my family and friends. My gift to my daughter in law Debra Rouse will be a check made out to "Made by Survivors". I am so very proud of her and every one who works so very hard for these girls. I'm also so very proud and in awe of how strong these young women are.

I held a couple of Human Trafficking Awareness Events with information supplied by The Emancipation Network, which included a video and talking points. These events allowed me to reach many people in my community and let them know about human trafficking, what's being done to fight it, and what we can do to help stop it. I also held a few fundraisers with the beautiful handcrafted items made by survivors of human trafficking--women and girls who were given a new start in life and control of their futures through TEN. This is a wonderful organization that deserves recognition and support!!

I love this group of people! Every day they are working to bring freedom to so many people who have never known it. They deal with people's pain and the unbelievable cruelty people inflict on one another. The survivors get to be in a safe place where they can learn and grow. I am so inspired by these survivors and those who work with them to give them a chance to earn a living wage and support themselves and their families, and work through the pain they have known to find hope.

Encourage them to set up centers for survivors in the United States as well.

I have peripherally been connected to Made By Survivors since 2009. This amazing organization has been consistent in its support and sponsorship of women and children who are survivors--survivors of greater tragedies than I have ever known yet are pillars of bravery and strength with smiles that still light up rooms. MBS creates economic opportunities for a mother to have a better way of life for herself and her family, thus breaking the cycle of oppression and poverty. I recently visited the jewelry center in Kolkata and was amazed by the quality of the products. Skilled teachers have trained women in the art of jewelry-making, but these women then make it their own by creating new and intricately designed pieces. Whether it is volunteering, donating, or buying products, support this organization! They are truly making a difference in this world.

This organization is amazing. I had the pleasure of going to India and meeting with the women and children and the staff. The women are so proud of what they have accomplished and they were a pleasure to work with. They taught us how they make the jewelry and showed us some of their sketches of the their designs that they did themselves. They are so smart and very talented I would not have missed it for the world. The children at the centers are so loving and playful. The centers are well kept and the girls showed us around their rooms. We had lunch with the staff and you could see and feel the pride they have in the women and children. Made by Survivors has made such a difference in the lives of so many just showing love and encouragement to women and children who have been through so much. And the founder Sarah Symons should be commended for her determination and sacrifices she has made to make this dream of hers come true, she is truly an
amazing women that founded an amazing Non profit THE BEST!

My girlfriend and I had the extreme pleasure to visit the Jewelry Center and Destiny this year. The women amazed me with there work ethics and there pride. They work so well as a team and support each other. They are so talented with their work and they do it so well. While there the ladies trained us on the some of the work they do and it was amazing to actually see the jewelry in the end. They told us they have their own savings and talked about starting their own businesses some day. The atmosphere at the center was filled with a lot of love and pride. They made us feel so welcome. The day my girlfriend and I left to come back to the states we didn't want to leave, we wanted to spend more time there. I have so many of the products they make and I've shown them to other people and they want the web site and are amazed at what they see these ladies make. The staff of this non profit are very dedicated to helping these women and children make a better life for themselves. I was actually in awe of the work they do.

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!

The Great!

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

by receiving pictures and correspondance regarding the sponsored children.

Ways to make it better...

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

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.

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.

The Great!
