I had the great honor to accompany a small group of volunteers with Made By Survivors to India and witness first hand the powerful difference that Made By Survivors/T.E.N. Charities is making in the lives of women and children - those who have been rescued from trafficking and those at risk of being trafficked. I have visited shelter homes where monies donated by T.E.N. Charities have added entire wings and buildings, I have watched in awe as the young women in their jewelry program have grown into confident artisans and entrepreneurs, and I have experienced the appreciation, joy and the love that not just the girls in the program, but the program directors and other charity partners have shared with the volunteers and with Sarah Symons. Another reason I believe T.E.N. Charities stands out as a great nonprofit is Sarah's due diligence with who T.E.N. Charities partners with and supports. Apple of Gods Eye in Nepal, Women's Interlink Foundation, Rescue Foundation and Destiny House in India are all samples of charity partners that are doing amazing work, changing lives for the better. And finally, I am impressed by the quality of goods that are offered through T.E.N. Charities and love that I can purchase a gift that makes a direct difference in the life another.

I had the opportunity to serve with Made By Survivors on a volunteer trip to India. I wanted to see first hand how support gets to the children and young women. I can't say enough about all the good that Made By Survivors is doing for victims of slavery and trafficking. Through education, restoration, and empowerment, they are changing so many lives. It is evident that every possible penny is going straight to the survivors and to the shelter homes where they live and are supported. Sarah and John have truly created a sustainable and meaningful solution to help survivors thrive through the rest of their lives.
