PulseWire Members: Part of Solution to End Slavery
With a lot of pride, I just entered World Pulse's May magazine, Human Trafficking; Survivors Lead Solutions, in Ashoka's Changemakers competition: Ending Global Slavery: Everyday Heroes Leading the Way. (http://changemakers.com/en-us/node/8830)
As I was looking at the other entries, I started to see familiar faces. Click on the links below to see and vote for PulseWire members in action. These are the real heroes!
The Emancipation Network (TEN)
TEN fights slavery with empowerment, 'slavery-proofing' survivors and high risk communities by giving them economic alternatives and education and using the Made By Survivors products to help build the abolition movement in the US.
We provide training to slavery survivors and high-risk individuals and access to education to surivors and youths in order to protect them from being trafficked into slavery.
Impulse NGO Network
A human rights-based approach to end human trafficking through prevention, protection, policing, and prosecution involving all stakeholders, including law enforcement, social welfare workers, and NGOs.
FAIR Fund recently launched JewelGirls, an art-therapy, economic independence, and social integration program teaching young women survivors of human trafficking to make and sell jewelry that allows each purchaser to become part of her recovery.
The Human Trafficking Project
Combine art, information and technology to raise awareness of modern day slavery and take action to stop it.D

TheCode gives tourism industry an operational tool to prevent and combat child sex tourism and to protect children’s rights.
