We are joining the Justice Run to raise money to enable women exploited by the sex industry to craft new lives!! We use fashion to provide dignified employment opportunities and training for women to experience a new freedom.
Emily and Andrew Schmidt started Awaken with a vision that a business could create amazing products and change lives at the same time. We always felt we were blessed to grow up in a country that supports freedom and has given us opportunities many would only dream of.
We set off to find partners that were doing amazing work, through a lead at a Fair-Trade conference we heard about NightLight Design a Thai business that employs those formally in the commercial sex industry. We headed off to Bangkok to share our vision and hear theirs. We have been working together for over 4 years and are just at the beginning of the grand vision we share.
Please consider supporting our vision, and help us offer employment to more women waiting to experience freedom a reality.
