Artisans from Asia

Eden Ministries

Eden Ministries serves to restore freedom for the captives of Asia’s red-light districts through holistic programs—transforming body, mind, and spirit. Young women rescued from human trafficking and sexual exploitation are provided a new career, skill training, and counseling—empowering young women for a new life and future.

Eden’s jewelry is handcrafted by rescued young women like Yen. Yen was full of anticipation when her older cousin promised a well-paying job at a restaurant in the big city.  However, when Yen arrived in the city, she was immediately drugged, locked in a brothel, and forced into sex slavery. At first she cried daily, but she soon learned to force down her tears, as the boss threatened to burn her with hot water if she cried again. After Yen met Eden’s street outreach, she was rescued and is now starting a new life at Eden.

Eden Ministries’ calling is to be a voice to the oppressed, a light to the darkness. Partners like WorldCrafts help enable Eden Ministries to live out this passion and employ more rescued young women.

Starfish Project

With a mission to restore hope to exploited women in Asia, Starfish Project established a socially responsible jewelry company in 2006 as a means to offering meaningful alternative employment, vocational training and educational grants, and a wide array of social programs to women trapped in exploitative situations. Each woman who leaves an exploitative situation for employment at Starfish Project is given opportunities to heal her physical and emotional scars in ways that transform every aspect of her being, including in her relationships with family, friends, and colleagues. By operating under three main values—the holistic transformation of lives, implementing ethically based business and organizational practices, and raising up local leadership—Starfish Project continues toward a vision of seeing every woman valued. Each piece of jewelry purchased directly funds the empowerment of exploited women in Asia.
