How do you gift wrap hope? For a young victimized girl trapped in the horrors of the sex slave industry, hope means the possibility of rescue ... hope means safety, security, compassionate care ... hope means family, home, a new life ... hope means life for her precious unborn baby...
Each Freeset bag tells a story of one woman’s journey to freedom. She used to stand with 6,000 other prostitutes in a small but well-known town in North Calcutta. She didn’t choose her profession; it chose her. Poverty does that. It robs people of their dignity and children of their innocence.
She still lives in the same area, but instead of selling her body she sells Freeset Bags. Now she has choices, the choice to work decent hours for decent pay, to reestablish her dignity in her community and to learn to read and write. Now her daughter won’t stand in the street selling her body like her mother used to. Freedom has been passed on to the next generation.
