Sari Bari

Thursday night one of our guests, Beth, shared her inspiring story about the organization Sari Bari.  Beth is a member of Blue Flax Quilters, a group of women that has made 2 quilts for this organization.  The quilts will be auctioned beginning on Monday, October 1 as part of the Sari Bari annual auction. 

Here is an excerpt from the Sari Bari website:

"Sari Bari is a safe place of employment where women who have been exploited in the sex trade or who are vulnerable to trafficking can experience a new life in the making. The name "Sari Bari" comes from two symbols. A sari is the traditional clothing worn by women in India. In India, a sari represents the essence of womanhood. The word bari mean "house or home" in the Bengali language."
