Frequently Asked Questions
- So how are you helping stop human trafficking?
We have spent most of 2015 and 2016 seeking out organisations both big and small that are passionate about putting an end to human exploitation, slavery and trafficking. Many of these organisations our founder built connections with while doing humanitarian work in Vietnam.
These organisations have developed enterprises to empower the people through training and work with fair wages and conditions and additional support and training. Supporting the enterprise through purchasing their products passes on a life-giving source of income for those affected by human trafficking.
Additionally For Dignity is supporting other initiatives that are helping stop human trafficking, like the work International Justice Mission is doing world wide in awareness raising, advocacy and legal representation. We give donations from the profits to this vital work.
We are continually inspired by the passionate and transformative efforts of our producers and advocacy organisations, and urge you to explore the stories of freedom, hope and dignity experienced by the people they support.
- Why the name for Dignity?
Human trafficking is the world’s fastest growing global crime1. All around the world, people are being treated as merchandise, tricked into transactions for their livelihoods; their humanity brushed aside for a dollar value.
But people are not commodities.
- How is for Dignity environmentally friendly?
We include in our collection beautiful items that are made from 100% organic cotton or recycled fabrics.
