There are over 20 million people living in slavery in the world today. We believe that every person deserves to live free. Through PURPOSE Jewelry, you are able to give freedom to rescued young women around the world.
We were founded in 2007 to provide hope, dignity, and freedom to women escaping human trafficking. Our nonprofit organization has grown to five locations globally (India, Uganda, Mexico, the United States, and the Philippines). Each Sanctuary provides young women the tools they need to rebuild their lives. We provide income, health, education and community, filling the gap between rescue and restoration.
The Sanctuaries give girls and women a community to belong to. We provide the space where they are able to love and be loved, feel safe, and where they are able to heal, grow, and experience unconditional love from their co-workers as well as trauma-informed staff. For many of the survivors, this is the first healthy community they have experienced, and we have found that community is a necessary ingredient to unlocking true freedom for each woman.
