Have you heard of Freeset?

I hadn’t either until just a few months ago, but I am so eager to tell you about it now! First read this story about a beautiful woman named Rani…
Trafficked into this red light area, Rani felt that she had totally lost her identity and lived with a great sense of both shame and fear. She recalls with some emotion that one day while standing in line waiting for customers, two people from Freeset stopped to talk to her, “Kerry asked me my name. He asked me if I was given a better choice, would I take it or not? I said ‘yes’… I joined Freeset immediately and after 3 months I became a permanent staff member.”
Rani needed to move out of the area in which she was living for safety reasons but had no money at the time. Freeset arranged new accommodation on her behalf. Now she says, “I am doing very well at Freeset. I have been able to become a part of regular society since I joined Freeset. Before, I never had the courage or confidence to talk to any ‘regular’ people in society. Since working at Freeset I have developed the confidence within me so I can now boldly interact with anyone.”

While life still isn’t easy for her, Rani is adamant, “I never look back to the life I had before. I am a free person now.”

I get goosebumps reading that kind of stuff. God is doing big things through this ministry!

More about Freeset…

Freeset is located in Calcutta, India, helping to free women from human trafficking by providing them employment with dignity through sewing bags. Every woman is provided medical insurance, retirement, daycare for their children, classes to learn how to read and write, and three times the wage they would receive “in line.”
From December 1st through the 12th, several bloggers were part of Freeset’s Freedom Tour of 12 Days of Freedom with Freeset – take the time to read through each of the stories – they are so amazing!
You can also watch Freeset’s video, shop their bags, and change lives. I have one of these gorgeous {and sturdy!} bags from Freeset…
And it is worth the $15 and more! I can carry groceries or crochet supplies or towels and swimsuits – it is very versatile!
There are LOTS of sizes and shapes to choose from – I even know people using the smallest bags as gift bags! Fabulous idea!
I hope you’ll take some time to explore the Freeset site and buy a bag or two to free more women from human trafficking!
