Lunch discussion with Kerry Hilton
Co-sponsored by EMDC, Net Impact & DSAS – Samosas & Chai provided
In 2001 Kerry Hilton founded Freeset Bags & Apparel as a means to provide alternative employment and economic freedom to women who were victims of India’s notorious sex trade. Operating in Sonagacchi, India’s largest red-light district, Freeset has enabled ~200 women to escape debt, servitude and social exclusion and brought light to the issue across the world.
Today, Freeset is excited to take the next step and use sustainable businesses to bring economic freedom to the heartland of India. Attendees will learn about what has been done thus far and discuss what is possible for the future!
