Courageous Cross Earrings
Each piece of Eden jewellery is designed and handmade by survivors of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Each design carries a true story of a courageous woman who has been rescued and is within the Eden program. The profits from every purchase directly benefit the women in Eden’s comprehensive program which works to be light, bring hope and share love with trafficking victims.
Ei Zin’s mother sold her daughter’s virginity when she was just 14. Ei Zin felt like she had no worth, no voice, and no boldness. Soon she left school and found a job in a factory. She was able to generate enough income for her and her mother and things began to look up. Then factories across the city began to close and she lost her job. Her mother, filled with fury told her to get a job no matter the cost. And so, she began to work in a brothel. After some time of being trapped in this nightmare, she heard about the Eden Drop-in center. A drop of hope sparked in her and she came to the center as soon as she could. She started the nail art and sewing training and soon took a big step forward and decided to join the Eden program, and leave her former life behind.
It takes boldness and courage to leave your former life. It often feels impossible to leave old patterns and fears behind. It is only through taking that bold step forward into new beginnings and through forgiving those from the past and forgiving ourselves that true transformation, liberty, and hope can be discovered. Ei Zin now speaks up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
