Freedom Stones is a key project of the non-profit organization Not Abandoned. Its purpose is to not only create beautiful jewelry, but also to train and employ artisans who are either survivors of sex slavery or at-risk of being trafficked. 100% of proceeds from the jewelry line go directly back into our work for freedom. At Not Abandoned we are driven by the fact that SHE IS STILL THERE. She could be 8 or she could be 45, but her situation is the same. All over the world “She” is daily being sold into sex slavery. While we are living in freedom, the reality remains that without our help she is still there, trapped and alone
"Our mission at Not Abandoned is to combat sex slavery through prevention, intervention, employment and restoration. Along with outreach to victims of slavery, we offer transitional housing, counseling, employment opportunities, business mentoring, life skills training and support throughout their community reintegration.”
