We are on the third week of my Marketplace Discipleship Training School with University of the Nations in Kona, HI. We already started to prepare for the outreach trips. My group will have two teams. 10 people will go to Thailand. Me, Oksana, Suyeon and Karen will go to Nepal. The project that we will work in Nepal with is called Beauty for Ashes.
Beauty for Ashes International, Inc. was formed in Nepal to provide employment for the women who became the victims of sex trafficking. This is a non profit organization which provides job skill training, education, and micro business financing to hurting and exploited women. Beauty for Ashes helps to break the cycle of poverty that fuels human trafficking and sexual exploitation through employment of women at risk. They also provide trainings and teach the women to take care of their children and have good parenting skills. The mission of Beauty for Ashes is to give women a choice where they’ve had no choice and make a lasting difference in their lives.
The office in Nepal is a wholesale gift items manufacturing business. They are focused on making high quality and stylish products as jewelry, bags, sari, and accessories.
