How We Got Started

Dawn Manske came face to face with the effects of human trafficking while living in China and decided to devote her life to creating a world free from modern day slavery. She founded Made for Freedom, a social enterprise offering fashion and lifestyle products created by survivors or human trafficking. Manufacturing of these ethically-made products helps to prevent human trafficking by providing dignified employment to victims and women at risk globally. An Arch Grants award-winning organization, Made for Freedom has provided over 9,000 hours of dignified employment for at-risk women worldwide. Watch the story and see how Made for Freedom started on this episode of PBS Startup.
