Seam by seam... sale by sale... each one is significant because of what these collective movements enable.
As we launch this new website, for us, it's a fresh face for our visitors to meet our Freeset family and to hear our stories; the diligent staff who give their most precious asset everyday - time - to secure sales, move the carefully crafted products from one geography to another, massage our online presence, and of course, greet and share our mission with those who will listen.
Since its birth 14 years ago in the modest grounds of India, the Freeset family stands humbled and encouraged by progress that has been made possible by people like you. One woman and then another said yes to opportunity when this freedom movement started; one person on the other side of the world listened and supported, then another then another, and as the sales grew, so have the number of women sitting in our buildings... and I can tell you, they are smiling and living in a healthy and empowering reality many of them never imagined to be possible.
One click around the site, your order, your sharing of our message tells us loudly that we are still headed in the right direction.... to end the nightmare for many girls who don't have choice.
At Freeset, we see the end of this nightmare for many individuals on a regular basis.... and we continue to vision for that day when the final end of slavery is realized.
Vision with us. Seam by seam. Sale by sale.
I watched in utter disbelief as a small boy jumped on the bus exclaiming, "Good Morning!" (in English, mind you) and opened up about half a sandwich bag of dry coffee creamer--his breakfast.....
I can choose not to eat dry coffee creamer for breakfast. I choose what college I attend. I choose where I will live at college. I choose what I will study there. I choose whether I will throw on a t-shirt and Chacos or dress up for class. I choose what I eat for lunch. I choose my friends. I choose my boyfriend. I choose if I will grab Starbucks or Juice Bar for a pick-me-up; I choose my job; I choose EVERYTHING. But the snake that is poverty has a funny way of wrapping around and around as it gets worse and worse until it is so restrictive and choking to a person that they can't move. They can't choose anything. They get what poverty allows them to barely grasp and they take it.
In 2015, CLF began to explore suitable community projects and, Michelle Pratt (CLF Founder/Director), Nik Webb-Shephard (Child Labor Free CEO) and I were connected with fellow New Zealander, Phillipa Rea of Freeset. Freeset is a social enterprise, based in Kolkata’s Sonagacchi district, which aims to free local women from the sex industry by providing them with the opportunity to learn new skills and earn a decent wage by creating fair trade, organic goods.
The Freeset factory also provides a social network for the women working in the factory and provides health, financial, counseling, housing and education support. The three of us visited Kolkata in March 2016, to conduct a site visit to further scope out potential projects. During this visit, we met with many of the women working in the factory. Hearing the stories of these women, who have left the sex industry to better support their children and families - and also to better care for themselves - you cannot help but feel pain for those who have never had a choice. It is in these moments you know you have to be a part of the change too.
