Our Story

Who We Are

Our Main Goal

Fighting Slavery One Purchase at a Time

The Shop for Freedom markets and sells products handcrafted by women once held captive in the sex trade. All proceeds directly support efforts to fight and prevent human trafficking. We partner with freedom businesses (social enterprises) who employ survivors of sex trafficking in Asia. These businesses not only create beautiful handmade products, but also ensure freedom for the women and their daughters!

Why We Exist

Our Focused Efforts

Funding Freedom & Creating Lasting Change

The Shop for Freedom is a campaign of Justice Ventures International (JVI), a human rights organization that not only partners with freedom businesses as a non-profit distributor, but also prosecutes traffickers, trains judges and police to uphold anti-trafficking laws, and works to change the systems that allow injustice to continue.

How We Work

Our Collaborative Efforts

Partnering with Freedom Businesses

Our freedom business partners in India include Freeset, offering fair trade bags and t-shirts, and Sari Bari, offering hand-stitched upcycled Sari purses and home furnishings. We also partner with Starfish Project, making hand-crafted beautiful jewelry. These women are trained, given dignified work, holistic services, a caring community and, most of all, hope on their journey to freedom.
