05 Nov LR International Partners with Free The Girls
LR INTERNATIONAL is proud to announce our new partnership with Free the Girls, a non-for-profit organization based in Denver Colorado with offices in Maputo Mozambique. Free the Girls provides used clothing to women involved in forced prostitution in Mozambique so they can create a business and earn income from the used clothing market in Mozambique. Over 90% of all clothing sold in Africa is used, and the women in the program receive shelter through a safe house called Project Purpose as well as clothing inventory they can sell and earn money to keep them out of the forced prostitution they were sold into when they were just little girls.
In March, LRI will ship an ocean container load of clothing inventory to Mozambique for Free the Girls at no charge to assist in the rescue of these women.
Stay tuned for more details and pictures when we ship the container from our Chicago warehouse.
