The Story: In 2007, International Sanctuary (iSanctuary) was created to address the many needs of young survivors of sex trafficking through holistic care and empowerment. The women are placed in mentoring programs, and provided with an education, medical and dental care, scholarships, and micro-loans in order to prepare them for the future. Each young woman who graduates from the program at iSanctuary is equipped with the skills and knowledge that she needs to enter the job market with confidence. These survivors are given the opportunity to follow their dreams and achieve goals that once seemed impossible. No longer hopeless, these young women are now empowered and able to live free from poverty and exploitation. iSanctuary works with survivors in Mumbai, India and Orange County, California, and has served over 300 young women. In 2014 iSanctuary launched Purpose jewelry. Survivors at iSanctuary's center in Mumbai, India are taught artisan jewelry skills. All jewelry is prepared, packaged, and shipped by survivors rescued in Orange County, California. These young women play a critical role in every step of the process, from handcrafting the jewelry to shipping your purchase. 100% of the proceeds from our purchase of Purpose jewelry benefit the survivors through iSanctuary. Each purchase provides employment, job training, and the financial stability survivors need in order to properly provide for themselves and their families.
