From virtual slave to business owner... thank you!
By Eimi Olson - Project Leader
“Alina” was sold into servitude at the mere age of 11. For three years she was denied her basic human right to education, and worked to exhaustion. After being rescued by NYF, her lack of education meant she was unable to find work.
Frustrated and unemployed, Alina had almost given up hope — until she enrolled in NYF’s vocational training program. After taking a course in tea & snacks-making, Alina had the tools she needed to start her own food stall business. Now, at 26, Alina is finally happy, knowing that she is able to provide for her family, including her newborn son.
Thanks to caring friends like you, NYF has provided vocational skills training to 145 freed Kamlari girls this quarter. These courses empower women rescued from virtual slavery by providing them with employable skills.
Your continued support helps to ensure that Alina, and many others like her, can lead happy and independent lives. Thank you!
