These women are now living as artisans, creators and artists with sustainable careers, and have access to education and medical care that’s supported by your purchase.
Skills Training & Employment
SNF's social enterprise provides fair-wage employment and vocational training to women and girls who are at risk or victims of human trafficking in New Delhi. Women and girls join the training and capacity building program to gain experience and earn income that acts as protection from forced sex work or child-marriage. Financial literacy, soft skills training, and professionalism are key components of the training program. Clothing and housewares are stitched from up-cycled or sustainable sourced textiles.
Since 2014, SNF has provided supplemental education to the victims of human trafficking, sex workers and their children. Creche Center provides as a safe childcare space for babies as their mother's learn and grow. Tutoring programs engage children in after school activities, tuitions, and exposure trips.

Focus is placed on women's health, prenatal care, vaccination, and HIV preventative services.
