The Shop For Freedom


Through the Shop for Freedom Campaign, JVI sells products created by former victims of injustice in India and China. JVI’s Shop for Freedom partners, Freeset, the Starfish Project, and Nomi Network, employ women who were forced into prostitution by poverty or trafficking. By providing dignified employment, a caring community, and education in literacy and life skills, these organizations offer a way out of the sex trade, freeing women from a life of exploitation and degradation.

Purchasing bags, t-shirts, and jewelry through the Shop for Freedom Campaign provides alternative income for women leaving the sex trade. Volunteers can also host a Shop for Freedom sale, raising awareness about the human trafficking crisis, while also helping to set women free.
