Bonjour Mes Chers Amis,
Did you know that every year over a million children are lured or forced into the sex trafficking trade? There are many wonderful organizations dedicated to education and prevention. They also focus on rescuing these children, securing arrests, and shutting down brothels. The Butterfly Project is a non-profit organization that has partnered with Born2Fly to help in the healing process of the women and girls who have been rescued.
In many instances, once a girl or woman has lost her virginity, no matter how violently, she is no longer considered of value to her family or community. Being forced into prostitution is a source of shame, and there is nowhere for them to turn. Fortunately, there are safe houses all over the world where these survivors are able to begin the healing process. Some safe houses are devoted to prevention and awareness, providing a safe shelter for young girls who are at high risk for trafficking In many of these shelters, the survivors are creating beautiful pieces of jewelry as a way of helping out with expenses and learning skills. It can sometimes be part of their therapy.
The Butterfly Project brings this beautiful, handmade jewelry straight from the safe houses to you. The money is given directly to the women in the safe houses, so they earn every cent. These beautiful pieces are definitely head-turners, giving the wearer an opportunity to talk about the sex trafficking industry and get others involved in the efforts to end it.
Please join us and the countless others who are working to end this horrific practice.
The Butterfly Project founder, Jané Gautier-Shadoin, travels worldwide speaking out against human sex trafficking. She brings awareness to church groups, women’s groups, abolition coalitions, and any other groups interested in not only fighting the industry, but in supporting the survivors.
Jané has hosted teas and other events showcasing the beautiful jewelry made by these beautiful women and will be happy to help you host an event.
