The Aruna Project
Bringing Hope to the Brothels of Southeast Asia
WE FREE, WE EMPOWER, WE EMPLOY
As a US non-profit, we mobilize thousands across the US in 5K Runs to raise awareness and money to support outreach programs into the brothel system and our Training Center, where sexually enslaved women receive counseling services and skill/trade development training. Once empowered with skills and choice, our Freedom Business offers employment marked by holistic care to those set free to provide them a future of lifelong freedom. Completing the freedom cycle, our free artisans produce a line of beautiful hand-made bags that are available for purchase in our online store. Visit www.arunaproject.com to learn more.
Be a Part of Our Freedom Story
When you race for Aruna, you run for a specific enslaved woman by name, like Reshma. You run to raise awareness of her need, to raise funds to secure her freedom through outreach programs, and to sustain her freedom through full time employment.
The impact of your donations is life-changing for the women we serve. Women like Priya who survived years of horrific abuse are discovering enjoyment and happiness in their new lives with Aruna. You can read more incredible stories of previously enslaved women employed by the Aruna Project here.
Together, we will give a voice to the voiceless and bring freedom to the enslaved!
