Made by: Freeset

Freeset is located in Sonagacchi, the largest and most infamous sex district in Kolkata, India. Within a few square miles, more than 10,000 women (mostly trafficked) stand in line selling their bodies to thousands of men who visit daily. Freeset works with over 190 women to set them free from the sex trade through their fair trade business offering employment, safety, and dignity. Their goal is to see the 10,000 sex workers in their neighborhood empowered with the choice of leaving the profession they never chose in the first place.
