Creating freedom and opportunity since 2006
Our social business model is facilitated by both a for-profit business in India and 501(3)c nonprofit in the U.S. Together, the two entities work hand in hand for the benefit of our artisans. This unique hybrid model facilitates a business which is driven by a socially beneficial mission. Through this social business model, Sari Bari relies on profits from sales as well as grants from funding sources in order to expand its capacity to serve women in poverty who are currently, or who are at risk for, being exploited through the commercial sex industry. Sari Bari seeks to provide a distinct focus on developing and sustaining economically, educationally, and socially empowering opportunities for women in poverty who have already, or are at risk for, experiencing the loss of freedom, choice, and dignity through sexual exploitation and human trafficking. Sari Bari focuses on the empowerment of women so that they have opportunities to make their own life choices, experience restoration, and achieve economic security.
