The BFF Approach

Our Workshops Provide:

Mentorship

BFF utilizes art, music and photography therapy programming to strengthen reintegration, empowerment, and provide a level of self confidence for survivors and women at risk of trafficking.

We provide creative inspiration directly to women and girls, as well as mentoring and consulting services to partner organizations to increase their ability to produce local activations and awareness, funds and donations and create a sense of community.

Community

We partner with on-ground non-profits led by locals who know their communities best and focus on rescue, recovery and reintegration.

Creative Development

BFF develops custom curricula with established professionals for the youth and survivors that excites and challenges them from concept, design & development, production and launch.

Students in the educational program do not just partake in the classes & activities, they immerse themselves in the cultures of the arts.

Art, Camera Equipment, and Supplies

Thanks to fundraising events and donations, we are able to work with quality art materials, camera equipment, etc. to teach the young survivors.

Additionally, we are able to provide the youth with proper equipment and materials so they can expand their creativity post workshops.

Our Global Partners

We start by choosing our international partner organizations very carefully. Beauty For Freedom has a strict vetting process (see FAQ page).  The on-ground partners identify high-risk youth who are healing from the horrors of trafficking.  These organizations provide services that include education, health care needs, nutritional support, recreational facilities, legal aid, and advocacy.
