Combating Human Trafficking through Business: Annie Hilton and Freeset

"There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires"

~ Nelson Mandela

In 2001 Kerry & Annie 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 learned about what has been done thus far and what is possible for the future!.
