Originally from Oregon, USA, Robin founded Basha on 2 May 2011 to provide a sustainable livelihood through dignified work for women at risk and survivors of trafficking in Bangladesh. That is an amazing feat!
Through Basha, Robin has helped these women gain job and entrepreneurial skills in a healthy, healing and supportive environment. The women's families also value and respect them more as they can generate income from the products they make by hand. Basha provides social support, ongoing education, and children programs for their employees' children to help break the cycle of poverty and victimisation.
Robin is a woman of influence who has made a significant impact on the women in her community. We honour you today, Robin and thank you for partnering with us to empower survivors of trafficking and give them hope and a future!
