Free to Shine is a Charity based in our home town of Noosa, whose mission is to help young girls in Cambodia to be free from sexual slavery.
Their aim is to get to half a million girls in to school in countries where sex trafficking is prevalent.
Free to Shine say that getting the girls into school and staying at school is not always easy and they need to work closely and in partnership with the family and community to ensure that the girls are able to stay in the program. This will give them the opportunity to complete their education through high school and hopefully into work.
Free to Shine currently has 274 girls who are being supported by generous donations from business partners. Unfortunately they don’t have enough sponsors for every girl as yet. The goal this year is to have every girl on the program to have a sponsor of her own.
James Street Organics have been sponsoring two girls for for many years now on this program. We receive a half yearly update on the girls and how they are doing, it’s so lovely to hear what they are up to and how they are getting on in school.
