March 2013 MBS Jewelry Center Report

There has been so much going on at the Made By Survivors Jewelry Centers!  

Recently, Made By Survivors received a grant from Global Seva Off the Mat Challennge, to expand the Calcutta Jewelry Center.  We will be opening up space to train more girls and to include more aftercare shelters!  Then the yogis who raised the money came to visit with the girls working at the center and made jewelry right alongside of the them.  Many of the visitors were owners of yoga studios, who are now carrying Made By Survivors jewelry to sell in their studios and empower even more survivors!

Sarah and John, along with additional volunteers and our jewelry trainers are in India and Nepal visiting the shelters and jewelry centers.  Sarah said the visit to Jalpaiguri was hard, because the survivors there are still pretty traumitized, but she sees hope as the permanent shelter and vocational training center are being constructed. Calcutta was fun, feeling the energy of the girls and excitement for the expansion.  Now Sarah and John are in Nepal visiting the girls who make the Nepali collections.  Sarah says she feels very blissfull in Nepal.

Plans are underway to start a jewelry center in Bangladesh as well.  Many of the girls trained in our centers in India have been repatriated to Bangladesh.  They are ready to start a center there so they can keep working for Made By Survivors and provide employment to other at risk women.

What an exciting season Made By Survivors is in - growing, growing, and growing!  Thank you for your support as we empower survivors of slavery to design their own futures!
