Free The Girls

“Something Simple Can Become Extraordinary”


Free The Girls is a U.S. based 501©(3) non profit organization working to equip and empower girls and women who are rescued from their sex trafficking nightmare.

 With the help of this organization, women survivors are offered the opportunity to open small businesses selling bras in the second-hand marketplace.  New and gently used bras are collected and sent to Indiana readying them for trip abroad. Selling bras offers these women a very profitable venture in a safe, well-managed environment.

The model for Free The Girls is two fold.

The first area is to offer SAFE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY. Bras collected across North America are shipped to established programs in El Salvador, Mozambique, and Uganda, where women can sell them to make a safe and sustainable income in conjunction with viable support from Free The Girls staff.

 The second area is HOLISTIC REINTEGRATION.  This area encompasses support for restored health, education, and social well being.

Freethegirls.org offers wonderful information and stories about this cause.

The GFWC Vernon Township Woman’s Club is presently involved in helping our surviving “sisters” by hosting a bra collection.  Our club has collected over 72 bras in two months, and we are now ready to widen our horizons by inviting the community to join us with our collection. Our goal is to collect 500 bras by May and we are determined to help these surviving women make a new life for themselves. If you would like to be a part of helping these incredible women in need please join our collection. We would love any gently used or new bras that you would like to add to the collection.  We are in the process of establishing two drop off sites.
