Beza Threads is a Des Moines-based non-profit working to rescue and rehabilitate victims of forced prostitution and sweatshop labor in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Through partnership with an Ethiopian NGO, they have funded the rescue of 130 teenagers from slavery. They sell a variety of scarves and leather products made by program beneficiaries, all of whom are receiving rehabilitation and job skill training that will lead them on a path towards a successful, sustainable career and life.
Join us at the WCC Office Monday, October 23 at 7 p.m. to hear more about their mission and purchase a scarf. Ninety percent of their proceeds go towards preventing and fighting human trafficking in Ethiopia.
You are encouraged to bring friends.
Please RSVP to Jane Johannesen or the WCC office.
