I am proud to say that I have worked with and volunteered with Durga tree. I did not realize the importance of this human rights issue before I was involved with Durga! The organization is made up of passionate board members, volunteers, and supporters who truly put their hearts and souls into making a difference in the lives of those who have been effected by trafficking. They also work diligently to educate others on this important issue that is happening all over the world.

Durga Tree International is on a forever quest for the next step for the survivors of human trafficking and modern slavery. They continue to build awareness and raise much needed funds for the ongoing projects it supports. I am empowered when I participate with this organization and they are consistently on the path to eradicate this plague. I am always grateful to be in service to these children who can't speak for themselves.

Watching this Organization help so many in such a short amount of time is prideful to say I support them. They reach out to educate the community and bring in other abolitionists who believe that one voice matters. They are a rising voice against Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery. They have made it possible for their partners to do the work that is needed by fundraising for them. I support this organization because they speak to my life purpose. "I am the resounding voice of the voiceless who stands beside those bound by the chains and atrocities imposed upon them."

They are selfless and genuine. I am blessed to be a part of something so great. The organizations they partner with as well are uplifting and grateful for this work done by Durga Tree International. They are a transparent non profit who expects the same of those who they partner with. Their work in Guatemala and India is showing positive results.

It is a pleasure to be able to be a part of this organization.

Durga Tree International has opened my eyes to so many things that are happening around me, most of which I was not aware of. Everyone involved in Durga Tree is honestly there to make a difference, we all chose to make a difference. We want everyone to have the freedom of choice in this world as well. Human trafficking has become slightly more prominent in the media and politics, but not enough. Durga Tree International is trying to change that, we want to educate, help, and maintain everyone on this topic.

I am so proud to be a Board Member at Durga Tree International. It amazes me to think what we have accomplished in one short year and the potential of what lies ahead for our charity, the charities we serve and the survivors that we all care for.

I believe in the model of this charity, we have created a unique community of service that I feel will be a model for many other charities in the future.

My involvement in this cause has also changed my life personally for the better. The dedication & hard work of the three co-founders has made being a part of the board an opportunity to grow personally, to see dreams manifested and gives me a great sense of self worth. The potential of this charity is unlimited and will create a movement for the future that I feel blessed to be a part of.

Being so involved with this organization not only opens your eyes to the reality of human trafficking all around the world but what you can do in everyday life to help change it. This organization really works hard to encourage these survivors to thrive. With the start of their Bloom Program in several locations they will be doing even more of a service to these young women and children to help establish a skill to be able to provide for themselves and their families, rather than be trafficked again because of money. I am so proud to be able to work along side everyone at Durga Tree and make such an impact!
P.S. - Their events are always so much fun!

I am so proud to be apart of such a wonderful nonprofit. Durga Tree International Inc is such an inspiration. Bringing awareness and educating those who don't realize just how prominent human trafficking is in the black market. As an employee in the airlines industry, I know I am surrounded by this daily. I have never felt so connected to a nonprofit before. Durga's mission is the driving factor to help fight to end modern day slavery!

I am very proud to be a donor and volunteer for Durga Tree International. In just over a year, the money they have raised to help eradicate human trafficking and promote the continued growth of people who have been saved from the international slave trade is beyond remarkable. The care and hard work that Beth and Tim Tiger and Jess Hoertel put into Durga is inspiring. In addition to taking part in the Walk with Ambe in May, I also attended the Gala in 2013 and will be volunteering at the Gala this year. Both events were so delightful and put together so well due to their diligence and attention to every detail. Their integrity is beyond reproach and I can't wait to help them in the months and years to come make Durga Tree an internationally known name and force against the plight of human trafficking and slavery.

I first heard about Durga Tree International shortly after they started their important work in India. Working with survivors of sex trafficking, DTI saw past the immediate need of food and shelter and crafted a motivational and inspiring program to give this incredibly young women real skills to thrive in the world. That was a creative, and much needed development in helping to end the cycle of slavery (many people will re-traffic themselves if they can't earn a living wage elsewhere!).

I was impressed with the seriousness of their work, and the deeply felt sense of personal responsibility I encountered with the team who founded the effort. I joined their international advisory board and got to know their work more deeply - every new layer revealed a thoughtful, caring, and serious approach to tackling the daunting challenge of ending modern slavery.

Today, I work with the New England Chapter of this outstanding group. I feel confident, knowing that my donations of time and money are well spent and leveraged fully to make an important difference in the world!

This is just a huge feel good nonprofit organization. Great work, great people and the opportunity to see directly the good their fundraising and volunteering does. I've been blessed to be involved in this organization on many levels (volunteering, donating and working) since its inception and it has always been a rewarding and humbling experience. My husband and I will continue to work with them as long as they will have us!

Over the years, I have volunteered for many non-profits and Durga Tree International is by far the hardest working organization for which I have had the pleasure of working. They never forget their mission of service, which is reflected in their meticulous planning of programs and events as well as their focus on transparency of plans and accounting. They are indeed a role model for non-profits looking to truly serve.

I am extremely selective about where I spend my money and my time. As a volunteer for and donor to Durga Tree, I am impressed with their transparency around money and their projects. They hold themselves to the highest standards and this is what makes them a philanthropy worthy of the highest rating.
