Survivors of sex trafficking operate and manage a survivor-led catering cooperative.
Why we care: Impoverished girls and women are highly vulnerable to sex trafficking and prostitution.
How we're solving this: Provide sustainable jobs for survivors of sex trafficking.
Your support will provide sustainable jobs for survivors of sex trafficking in the Philippines. In cooperation with Bagong Kamalayan Collective, Inc., CATW has equipped a core group of women with skills and training in organizational and financial management, cooperative marketing, and cooking to run a cooperative catering business that values shared earnings and fair trade. This cooperative uses raw organic materials as an alternative to competition.
Additionally, this cooperative serves as gathering space for survivors of sex trafficking to support one another and organize.
With your support, survivors of sex trafficking can collectively operate a food catering cooperative in the Philippines. By increasing the number of women employed this will reduce women's vulnerability to trafficking and prostitution.
