BRAS? YES, YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY.
Bras and the second-hand clothing market provide a safe and powerful economic opportunity for women in the developing countries we serve
SAFE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY: Survivors can earn a safe income selling bras in the second-hand marketplace. We journey with them on the path to restore who they were designed to be- whole, worthy, and powerfully FREE.
A bra is a unique item that actually has the power to bring freedom and hope to survivors. The second-hand clothing market is a thriving industry in many countries around the world. Bras are a sought-after item in the countries we work in, and command top dollar in the marketplace. By receiving a starting inventory from Free The Girls, the women are able to begin their business and become an entrepreneur in their own communities. This income allows them a safe economic opportunity, and for many of the women, provides not only for themselves, but their children as well!
In other parts of the world, bras also tend to be an item that many women have sitting in drawers for a long time un-touched. Maybe you have one or a few in your drawer that you don't wear? We accept new and gently used bras in good condition.
