Freedom Yarn is not just any kind of yarn-it was specially created to bring freedom to hundreds of “trafficked” women in India. These ladies certainly would never have chosen to make a living by being sold-it was forced upon them by family members whose village economies were based solely on this “illicit trade”.
Because it has gone on for generations in these villages, it was not something to be eradicated overnight. Through several years of discipleship, education and vocational training, we are making a difference in these ladies lives.
Our efforts have grown from 20 to 100 ladies and their children. There will be hundreds more, as soon as we can physically accommodate them.
Thus the birth of “Freedom Yarn”–it is colorful “Rajasthani Tie-Dyed” fabric, handmade into cotton strip/craft yarn. Your purchase of handmade Freedom Yarn will ensure that their freedom is not short lived, but will be sustained for the rest of their earthly days.
So buy it up, make something awesome and pin/post it on Social Media. We want this to go viral, because the more we sell, the more ladies will be employed and set free from generations of bondage.
