And then they told their friends and family and together, the Girl Set Free community was formed. 

We've partnered in a crowd funding campaign, shared lots of starts and stops, 5 She Speaks conferences, three international sourcing trips, five collections, six photo shoots, 1200 artisan made goods, twelve interns and lots of memories along the way. Our greatest joy comes from walking beside once exploited women who are now set free. Recently, our founder Amy Kratzer shared the heart behind the Girl Set Free name. She was exploited as a child and shares her inspirational story here.
