“I have watched the LWR team come into Mumbai since February 2015. They are different. They love us, and take care of even our personal needs.”
The vision of Project Butterfly is to provide job skills to sustain business growth for the women who have been rescued or released from slavery in the red-light districts of Mumbai. For these women the cycle of slavery will be stopped once they have a steady income. They have learned a lot of skills in the last year with new sewing machines. From tote bags to makeup bags and simple cardigans to scarves, the lessons are advancing.
However, we learned that the production could be streamlined if the ladies had a basic level of education. The tailors were educating the women on basic number recognition. Educating the women in the local language will empower them and enable them to walk in greater confidence. Education is the key in the reintegration of these young women.
Will you join with us in restoring dignity and value to the women of Project Butterfly? Your gift of any donation will entrust them with basic education that will ensure that they will never be sold as slaves again!
