January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month. In my search for unique handcrafted items for Scooch A Mi Boutique, I came across PURPOSE® Jewelry. It was the style and beauty that caught my eye, but it was the purpose that truly captured my heart. PURPOSE® Jewelry is beautifully crafted by young women and girls rescued from human trafficking.
Did you know that millions of people around the world are exploited for profit and held in bondage? It is unthinkable in 2019, yet it still occurs. Every country in the world is affected by human trafficking, as countries of origin, transit, destination, or a combination of all three.
PURPOSE® Jewelry is International Sanctuary’s social enterprise. International Sanctuary is a non-profit corporation which aims to bring hope, dignity, and freedom to every girl and a young woman escaping human trafficking. Through iSanctuary’s wide range of holistic care services, young female victims can begin to heal and grow in mind, body, and soul. It is iSanctuary’s mission to not just sustain victims of modern-day slavery, but to provide the tools and life skills they need to embrace their true identity and worth and transform into survivors with true freedom
PURPOSE® Jewelry has worked with hundreds of young women around the world for the past 11 years. The art of jewelry making paired with holistic care ensures every artisan receives freedom and hope for the future. The program provides every artisan with the life skills and opportunities to succeed.
From creation to shipping, young women escaping human trafficking are playing a critical role in every step of the process. The young women are able to earn a fair wage and gain employable skills.
