Each year thousands of women are reported as victims of human trafficking. For the women who escape trafficking, the road to restoration is long and hard. One of the most difficult aspects of their journey is finding meaningful employment in a safe enviorment.
At RE + NEW + ALL, our mission is to provide that solution.
Within the RE + NEW + ALL workspace in Memphis, TN, a group of survivors gather each week to learn artisanal candle making. Using our therapeutic work model, we empower survivors by giving them an opportunity to earn an income, build their resume, obtain job skills, ignite their creativity, and grow professionally in a safe and nurturing working environment.
We are a social enterprise, not a non-profit. So instead of collecting donations, we sell candles to provide jobs. This means your candle investment has a direct impact on women being rescued out of the darkness. Every candle purchase gives these women the joy of a job they love, an environment where they are safe and nurtured, and the opportunity to grow professionally into leadership positions.
Each soy wax, hand-poured candle is completed with a cotton wick, ensuring that they are non-toxic and safe to burn. Every single one is infused with hope and personally signed by the candlemaker herself.
