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.
I am so grateful to have been introduced to Durga Tree by my friensm Eileen Geraghty, Durga's Community Development Director. Though her I met Durga’s founder, Beth Tiger, who is so inspiring, strong, and passionate about making women’s lives better around the world. Last year, Eileen invited me to join her at her table for a Durga fundraising dinner. I had such a great time meeting the eclectic group of dynamic women who were at the table and the event. My favorite part of the evening was that the conversations we had were so authentic. There was no talk of hair, weight, clothing, or any of the other things that can make us feel less than enough. Instead, we spoke about real ways that we can help women around the world who are suffering. I could feel the power in the room! Last February, my business partner and I had the opportunity to host another fundraiser for Durga Tree called Evening with the Angels at Body Positive Works, our integrative wellness center in Saddle River, NJ. It was such a special evening and again we met so many people who are dedicated to making this world a better place. Durga is such a special organization that is doing great things with so much love.
It has been my pleasure to volunteer for Durga Tree Int'l since its inception. As a volunteer, it have always been treated as a valued member of Durga Tree and have had nothing but outstanding experiences with the team. Each member, whether they are staff or volunteers, works seamlessly with the others to insure that Durga Tree's mission and commitments are honored. I have never worked with a more competent team of people that are full of integrity and perseverance. They truly are Love in Action!
Durga Tree Int'l once again is an example of excellence and transparency in non-profits. The staff and volunteers are compassionate and dedicated to providing the highest quality programs to their global partner organizations. They are truly an example of love in action through outstanding service.
I am honored to be a part of this charity which is making sustainable change in the world.
I have know the energized folks at Durga for several years now and they are true blue. I have attended fundraisers, joined in on movie showings, and actually called Durga directly to report a suspect moment. They immediately referred me to the correct people and I was able to report a possible crime.
I find the entire staff responsible and some of the most honest and ethical people I know. I highly recommend everyone joining in their cause and/or calling them for advice.
I have worked in numerous capacities with Durga Tree since its inception. As a donator, volunteer and former board member I can tell you the level of dedication to their mission is unparalleled and the integrity and transparency they operate with, incredible. The work they are doing is making a huge impact on lives across the entire globe and it's honor to witness and be a small part of.
Durga Tree International continues to make tremendous strides against human trafficking through its authentic collaboration with partner organizations. This is a unique approach to this epidemic yet critical in the creation of a global movement to eradicate slavery once and for all. Durga attracts passionate volunteers who dedicate themselves to both raising awareness and funds for our programs and have a very small part-time staff in order to preserve funds to sustain those programs. I am privileged to work growing our community of abolitionists. As a lifelong activist, it is an honor to work within an organization that provides hope to those we serve by creating educational and economic opportunities to protect them from re-exploitation. I continue to be challenged and inspired by Durga as we work to turn survivors into thrivers.
I am very proud to be involved with Durga Tree Internatiomal. Although my affiliation with this non-profit is less than one year, I am inspired by the drive, determination and dedication of the leadership. Their vision is beyond anything I have ever encountered in my many years of non-profit work. I am fully committed to our collaborative efforts to eradicate slavery in our lifetime.
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.
Every year i donate my skills an talents to Durga tree. I'm a DJ that play at the yearly gala as well as at least one other event. My wife and i donate regularly as well. Having a positive impact on the lives of the woman that are helped by Durga tree makes us feel tremendous.

Durga Tree never seizes to amaze me! Always updating its donors on projects and programs and keeping us informed with current events around the globe about this epidemic. I am proud to be a part of this ever-growing organization and community. Looking forward to raising more funds in 2018 to keep these programs alive!
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.
Durga Tree International, Inc. is a remarkable organization, tackling one of the worlds most intractable problems. The leadership is passionate, engaged and transparent and the impact of the programs is a result. DTI is committed to the folks they serve and the staff and volunteers who work throughout the organization. This level of engagement keeps energy levels high, a key factor when you're working with such a tough issue. DTI does a great job!
It is an honor to be the Executive Director of a non profit that not only cares for every person we serve but our volunteer/donor community. We see both as an intrinsic part of one whole. Our motto is love must act & this small mighty community does everyday. Looking forward to another year of incredible work helping to rid the world of Human Trafficking and suffering.
I am proud, to know and support this amazing organization, Durga Tree International. The excel at raising awareness of this horrific thing called "modern slavery" and "human trafficking" but further their execution of on-the-ground grass roots initiatives are outstanding. This nonprofit does what it takes to honor their mission.
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.
