For years, the talented seamstress, teacher, and entrepreneur has been faithfully helping Kinship United take on a preventative approach to Human Trafficking. Fatima’s life-long passion for sewing and teaching has given her a unique way to connect with vulnerable women and create sustainable change in high-traffic regions throughout Africa & Asia.
She generously donates a portion of her earnings, helping to take human trafficking one step beyond raising awareness. Her gifts help to give fair job opportunities to the group identified as the most at-risk for being trafficked - women living in poverty.
Gifts that are given to women’s issues open up opportunities for women in our Kinship communities to become entrepreneurs for the first time in their lives. Learning to bake or sew, for example, not only creates an incredible amount of self-worth, but more importantly, minimizes the risk of being sold into sex slavery.
Women who have escaped and been rescued from the horror of slavery are brought into a Kinship Home where they can begin to heal – where they can process – where they can follow their dreams.
Fatima Bey has taken a stand against human trafficking and knows that giving women an opportunity to learn a skill like sewing can be life changing. Selfless dedication is just what God calls us to do – and Fatima does it with boundless grace and love.
With no plans of slowing down, together we will continue to advocate for our sisters and brothers in Christ who are either at-risk of being trafficked or have been rescued, starting their road to recovery. “God created each of us with a purpose,” Fatima said, “and this is mine.”
Join us and stop human trafficking before it begins.
