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.

It is my passion to help others, through education and empowerment - Durga Tree provides the perfect way to do this, while allowing full transparency about where your donation dollars go. This organization is 95% volunteer base and even the people who are "employed" are part-time at minimum pay, to ensure that almost every dollar donated goes directly to those at-risk who need it most.

This group is very dedicated to the work they do - after talking with Beth and Jess, you can tell that they are invested in helping others. They are always great at sharing the progress made with the donations they receive, through their website and social media, as well as the newsletters emailed out every quarter. It is exciting to see how far my $10 a month can go, and also to be kept updated on the opportunities to help out that they are sure to offer. No effort or donation is too small to make a huge impact!

This is an exceptional nonprofit that has a big heart and a big call to action. It is so wonderful to see a nonprofit that has a long lasting impact and fosters a wonderful community. I could not recommend being part of this community more! They have an annual walk-a-thon that one can join from anywhere to support their work in combatting global crises such as trafficking and modern day slavery. And in addition, they have an annual Gala that cultivates a generous community that is passionate about giving back and also celebrating the work they do that helps hundreds of persons in need throughout the world. The co-founders Beth, Tim and Jess are such wonderful leaders with big hearts who are the definition of love & action.

I have been actively involved with Durga Tree International for the past 8 months, and I am forever changed in the most positive, heartfelt way. From the devoted co-founders, incredible board members, and all of the amazing volunteers, DTI embraces the art of collaboration and truly understands the wide, multi-layer scope of humam trafficking across the globe and what it will take to dissolve it.

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.

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.

My experience with Durga Tree International has been nothing less than amazing. Everyone has the same passion and drive to eradicate this terrible situation. Durga Tree puts all its efforts in to helping in as many ways possible by education, fundraising, and immersion trips to get the full experience. I am truly honored to have come across this group of people, and to be able to help support this cause.

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!

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!
