FRIENDS OF YOUCANFREEUS..
We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe during these very difficult times.
At YouCanFreeUs, nearly all of our staff have returned to work and are working within social distancing regulations. Our beneficiaries are excited to resume their learning and therapy sessions. We continue to focus on our primary mission: to care for our resident beneficiaries.
We are so grateful to all of our donors. Times like these can prove difficult for non-profits. We have had to put on hold several of our fund-raising events. Please consider sending a gift to YouCanFreeUs.
FACE MASKS FOR PROTECTION
As Covid-19 hit India and the country went into lockdown, our brave beneficiaries were thinking of other victims still trapped in the red-light districts. They quickly began making masks for girls in the red-light area.
QUICK UPDATE ON OUR ACTIVITIES DURING LOCKDOWN
One of our major wins has been the completion of our Life Skills Manual, which will also be made available to other non-profits fighting modern slavery. We were able to gather our years of experience in psychosocial care and life skills training and create a manual that will benefit survivors of modern slavery.
LIBERTAS, our prevention curriculum, is now available as an e-book on Amazon Kindle. Please click LIBERTAS for download.
Operations Management System – We are grateful to Dugnad AI, a Norwegian company, for developing a cloud-based operations management system for YouCanFreeUs. With this tool, all of our beneficiary records will go online, thus reducing our carbon footprint and building efficiency and tools for Management Information Systems (MIS).
Face Masks – Our girls have learned to make masks and we are now receiving orders to make masks for retailers and fashion brands in India.
The YouCanFreeUs website is getting a new look and this new website will go live soon.
We have increased our presence on social media with more frequent posts. We hope to bring awareness to the problem but also highlight our work.
