Make 100 girls Free Forever in Jalpaiguri

Fully Funded!

The funds needed to building the shelter and employment center in Jalpaiguri is fully funded!  Thank you for your generosity!  Additionally, Tarsadia Foundation, The Denver Vision Board, UCC-Tolland, and other private donors have supported this project to make 100 girls Free Forever.

The ground has been broken for construction and 30 girls are already living in a temporary space.  Some of the survivors are also being trained as artisan goldsmiths.  

"I visited the site of this project in March and go to know 30 of the 100 girls that will live in the new shelter. Many were very recently rescued and the trauma was some of the worst I have seen. Despite that there was a spark of hope and such huge potential in each girl. In their young lives they have experienced so much suffering - beyond my ability to even express. Now they deserve to be safe and loved and to be able to create a beautiful future. I feel we have to give them that." - Sarah Symons, Made By Survivors Founder and Executive Director

Thank you for helping transform these girls lives!  If you would like to continue to give to support the vocational training and employment of survivors please visit this project
