I am proud to be working as a Freedom Advocate with Better Way Imports and I can’t wait to tell you what we are all about and how you can be a part of our mission!
The vision of Better Way Imports is essentially to provide a better way of helping people. Billions of dollars in foreign aid has been poured into developing countries over the last 50-some years, but so much of this has either been a temporary solution, fallen into corrupt hands, or has not been used to alleviate the real struggles of the poorest people. This method of aid is also tied to control over these developing nations – forcing their colonial-style dependence on wealthy nations. Better Way Imports seeks to solve the problem of poverty, and specifically the poverty that makes women vulnerable to sex-trafficking, by providing economic opportunities to women. We open up markets in North America to the products that these women make, and ensure that they are receiving dependable, fair-trade wages for their work through the local organizations we partner with.
