Hanne Fellers is the Founder of Passport 2 Freedom, an organization that strives to help those who have been denied their basic human rights. "We hope to be a voice for those who have been stripped of their Freedom." Actress, model and designer Kelly King is the Ambassador to Fashion Hope, an organization that uses the entertainment and fashion platform to spread education and awareness of the plight of human trafficking. Fashion Hope also helps to raise funds for charities helping victims of sex and human trafficking.
Actress and designer Kelly King has been hand making and selling her jewelry throughout California and the US for the last 7 years. "I love making women feel beautiful, but at the end of the day jewelry is a material object. I've long desired for it to have a greater purpose." Helping women build confidence and knowledge through learning new skills and offering them the opportunity to self sustain is the most self-empowering gift you can give.
The World Bank calls investing in women in the third world "smart economicsutrition, medicine and housing. Women are" because research shows it has a multiplier effect. Studies have indicated that when women hold assets or gain income, the money is more likely to be spent on n more likely to share their economic gains with their families and communities at large. When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90% of it into their families, as compared to only 30-40% for a man.* By financially empowering mothers in areas at risk of trafficking you are also helping prevent their young daughters from needing to bring in income, therefore helping them to stay in school longer, and lessening their risk of being sold into slavery.
Our model aims to move away from NGO dependence and instead allow women to be responsible and independent. For example, salaries are provided rather than handouts, housing, or food. Woman budget their own money and live with freedom, respect, and dignity.
