You can make a difference in the lives of women affected by trafficking.
You want to be an advocate for the vulnerable, but the issue of human trafficking can feel overwhelming. It’s tempting to believe your involvement won’t make a difference. But through the restoration of hundreds of women and girls, we’ve seen proof it will.
You can lead a life of impact.
We have a place for you at Woven.
Buy jewellery with a purpose
It’s not easy to find ethical jewellery you’re excited to wear. You shouldn’t have to choose between fair-trade and trendy when you’re shopping…with our jewellery, you can have both!
The women in our SE Asia safe homes create beautiful earrings, necklaces and bracelets in modern colours and designs. Proceeds from jewellery sales are given back to the artisans and our safe work program.
Visit our new online store to check out a limited selection of hand-picked styles, which will be continuously updated as we receive news designs directly from our jewellery workshop. Previously, all our jewellery was available only at markets and events in a few cities...now we will ship it straight to your home!
My fears and doubts narrowed my vision—but God reminded me I simply had to be willing, and he would gently guide my steps.
Sometimes we underestimate the impact our lives can have on those around us. Even if my part in Woven seems small, I know it’s part of a bigger picture. I have a sense of purpose and peace I’ve never experienced before. I get to be part of something significant that changes lives!”

Ambassador Training is a structured 2-month training program for justice-minded individuals. Participants conduct guided research under the supervision of our Global Director, and meet bi-weekly on Skype to discuss their findings together.
Study topics include: the fundamentals of modern-day slavery, human trafficking issues locally and globally, history and modern-day practices, effects on world economy and impact on communities and families, as well as relevant terminology.
Following the 2-month period, participants visit the project for a week to learn directly from our staff. On your trip, you’ll learn about our safe homes, trauma counselling, prevention, outreach and ethical storytelling.
After your training, you’ll be equipped to understand human trafficking and advocate for sustainable solutions in any setting. Get in touch to find out if ambassador training would be a good fit for you!
