If you live in extreme poverty, falling into the human trafficking trade is easy; escaping is not. India-based apparel company Freeset is breaking the cycle of generational poverty and sexual exploitation by offering survivors a way out through employment. Along with providing counseling, childcare and financial planning services, Freeset trains workers to sew (with 100 percent organic cotton) and screen print (with eco-friendly inks). Cincinnati-based nonprofit Freeset USA distributes these fair-trade products to individuals and organizations throughout the U.S. If you’re out of closet space, they also accept grants and donations. Freeset USAfreesetusa.com.
