Meet Someone New: Shop to Stop Human Trafficking with Rahab's Rope + a Giveaway





Did you know that January 11th was National Human Trafficking Awareness Day? A lot of times I look at the stats and am heart broken, but I'm paralyzed because I don't know how to help. Today, I want to introduce my friend Meredith (I actually know her in real life from college). She works with Rahab's Rope and I've asked her to share about their organization that encourages people to shop to stop human trafficking!

___________________________________________

Did you know that 200 women and children are trafficked in India everyday? Out of the world’s 27 million modern day slaves, India is estimated to be home to 14.9 million slaves, the majority of whom are in forced prostitution. 

Rahab’s Rope, a 501(c)(3), exists to bring hope to women and children throughout India who are forced or at-risk of being trafficked into the commercial sex trade industry. By creating a safe and loving environment, they enable the at-risk and victimized to develop physically, mentally and spiritually. Rahab’s Rope provides basic education and vocational training for each girl and woman who comes through their centers; ultimately, allowing them to integrate into their communities in a positive and constructive manner.


Rahab’s Rope raises support through the selling of product to maintain their ministries and programs which cover prevention, direct intervention and aftercare in India. They are currently working in Goa, Mumbai and Bangalore, and have a full time missionary staff living in each of these locations. 

There are several ways to get involved which include: having a host-a-party event, partnering to raise awareness, child sponsorships and short or long term mission opportunities. 

Rahab’s Rope would love to give away one of their handcrafted rice bag products, which are made in their stitching center in Goa, to a lucky Revolutionaries follower!

They have sooo many amazing products in their online store-- scarves, jewelry, bags, accessories, home decor, and journals. My personal favorite? These owl wood coasters! If you live in Georgia, they also have a retail store in Gainesville (north Georgia area).

Even if you can't shop to help, you can share! Pin the image below or share this post on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc!



One of my goals for this year is to put my concerns into action. Let's keep each other accountable?
