At Eden we seek to bring hope to women who have been victims of sexual abuse and trafficking. It is estimated that there are 27 million people enslaved around the world today. Of the female victims, approximately 70% are being sexually exploited. In Asia alone, the annual profits generated from the sex industry is 9.7 billion dollars.
Here at Eden, we are taking a stand against this injustice, and doing whatever we can to decrease the statistics in our region of the globe. We believe that the victims of sexual exploitation desperately need to be free and to receive holistic healing addressing the needs of body, soul and spirit. Every person who comes to us is uniquely created by our Father and has her own set of needs. We strive to meet these various physical, emotional and spiritual needs through our medical clinics, shelters and alternative career training programs. read more >>
It has been 11 years since we walked the streets of our first red light district in Asia, and this is our 10-year anniversary of the jewelry business opening! We began the jewelry business with 3 rescued girls hunched over a coffee table in our first shelter and now 10 years later we have grown to 4 cities and 4 shelters, with one more being set up this year. We now export jewelry to more than 30 different countries and have the privilege of international designers working with us.
We felt it was time for something new in our look and logo to represent where we have come from and what we have accomplished. The butterfly logo has been such a blessing representing the transformation of those trapped in the darkness of red light areas, but Eden has become so much more than that. We have grown outwards in all directions- with our prevention programs, community centres, vocational training, influencing legislation and multi-city outreach. read more >>
