International Sanctuary, a non-profit organization, empowers survivors of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. Founded in September of 2007, in Orange County, California, iSanctuary empowers and equips survivors for their future.
With its production base in Mumbai, India, the girls, 12-19 years old, receive skills training, creating handmade items. The products made by survivors are sold in the US at home parties, retail shops and community events.
Through these avenues, awareness generates action to fight human trafficking. iSanctuary is working to ensure survivors receive all the elements necessary for restoration, including education, counseling, vocational training, and mental, emotional and spiritual healing.
