I had the pleasure of meeting some of these women in Kolkata last year and see them at work, and they are truly amazing and inspiring. This small project helps women and girls who have been forced into prostitution escape the trade by giving them an alternative way to earn money by making these blankets and bags. They also provide simple education, therapy, health care, etc. They also pay off the huge debts that these women owe their pimps, which ends up being why most of them stay in the trade. The girls are sold to the pimps, often by family members, and they have to work until they can pay it back. But the rates are so high that in reality they could never pay it back, but if they tried to escape without paying it off, they could lose their lives.
I saw that they were selling baby blankets so I wanted to share. Please consider! I know a lot of them are already sold but if you email Melinda you can get on a list for the next batch
mama to 5 yr old DS1 , 3 year old DS2 , and nursling DD .
I wish I could afford to help. We'll have to see how much DH's big paycheck is cuz I would love to buy one. They are gorgeous and when it goes to helping a cause like that it makes it worth-wild to purchase. TFS Kristen!!
