So fare this semester, I have been assigned two major projects. I can't say that I am worried about it because I already have awesome ideas in my mind as to what I am going to be doing.
First, my advanced English class has a project due that involves researching a Non-profit organization and volunteering for 5 hours. I'm excited about this project because I have worked with non-profits in the past and this one is for an amazing cause.
The non-profit is called Rethreaded, and in a nut shell they rethread old clothing and rebrand it in to accessories. The whole process helps women that have been victims of the the sex slave trade. They basically give them jobs and help them to understand business. I think it is very positive and an organization that is needed here in America. No one should have to be slave of any kind ever!.
According to their website, Rethreaded is a social entrepreneurship that is breaking the cycle of the sex trade by offering viable and creative work to those affected by the sex trade (i.e. human trafficking prostitution, drug addiction, pornography and strip clubs).
