Mr brother in law has recently come back from Kolkatta and shared his experience of Made by Survivors with us. What an amazing charity doing such hard work and making the difference that's needed out there. Hope they are given all the support they need to continue their work

This is an amazing charity that helps individuals and animals alike, who have been through dreadful ordeals, to heal in a safe environment with dedicated people who care for their welfare.
They are treated with the deepest respect and given an opportunity via a number of projects to carry on in their lives with a view to nurturing their self esteem and providing a bright and better future for themselves.
Such a charity and their amazing work gives me hope for the human race and it's future.

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.

Made By Survivors is a great organization that is doing a phenomenal job raising awareness of human trafficking, and actually helping women rescued from that life by providing them with real opportunities to earn a living and support their families.

TEN Charities has made a huge impact on the lives of many women across the globe. Staff and volunteers at Made By Survivors work tirelessly to empower women in India and Nepal. The girls not only make a sustainable wage but also create beautiful pieces of jewelry. I hear the stories of women who were once trapped in sex slavery now have a new life and a career. Thank you TEN Charities for standing in the gap and empowering so many women. World Changers.

I have supported Made by Survivors through my purchases because they are giving girls and women the opportunity to provide for themselves and reduce the risk of exploitation.

I learned about Made By Survivors through a friend with a passion for building awareness about human trafficking. I was instantly impressed with the non-profit that has a terrific business model that helps make a true difference in the lives of those who have been trafficked. The products they have sold over the years have been high quality, and yet reflect those who made them. I have jewelry and a bag that I purchased several years back and they are still in excellent condition. I love that each time I look at one of the items, it makes me think of those who made the items and those who are working to make a difference for them.

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!!
