Day ✌🏻at our #Free2Play camp with #NFSThailand and our supporters @allsaints We took a drive to a school where Buddhist Monks taught the kids traditional Thai massages, like the fire foot massage and Tok Sen massage (wooden mallet and wedge) The kids also learned about herbal remedies and got to make fresh fruit smoothies! The monks even donated some money to #NFSThailand, as well as eggs, and said we could come back next month to pick up chickens to raise on the shelter too! 🐔 #WeAreNotForSale
🏍️ Check out these guys! Our Shelter in Northern Thailand is home to 60+ children escaping exploitation. Our team do a phenomenal job here, from basics like food, education, life skills, to love, affection and play - all vital to childhood. #Free2Play is about taking time for play and the innocence of growing up, something lots of us take for granted. #WeAreNotForSale
🥰🧡 MINI HEARTS! our #Free2Play camp at #NFSThailand started today. Three days dedicated to the 60+ children at our shelter in Northern Thailand. Children that now have the freedom to enjoy the magic of childhood and play! There are 40.3M victims of human trafficking globally, and 25% are children. Joined by team members from @allsaints who continue to fight with us for those that are yet to be free to enjoy their own childhood! #WeAreNotForSale End exploitation and human trafficking 📷 @kateedaws
One day until we kick off #Free2Play We spent time at our children's village, planting rice with the kids and our #NFSThailand director / fearless & inspirational leader @krunamvgcd It's an important experience for the kids, not only does it teach them the importance of self sustainability, but also the benefits of working as a group (many hands make light work) #WeAreNotForSale 📷 @kateedaws

End Modern Slavery #WeAreNotForSale

🐦🌱🧡#NFSPeru continues to work with notable abolitionists to support a shelter for young people at risk of trafficking. The majority of cases include forced labor in mining, logging, and agriculture. We also created an ethical supply chain for sustainable impact with @rebbl Helping both the indigenous population as well as rainforest. End Modern Slavery. #WeAreNotForSale
👀 Hello from #NFSNetherlands. Founded in 2012 to help trafficking survivors from all over Europe. We created @dignitaamsterdam, to offer culinary training to exploited people, eventually hiring them in the restaurant. All profits are returned to the social Enterprise. Now that's good food! 🍨 #WeAreNotForSale #EndModernSlavery
🥰🥰 We're so excited to see these happy faces next week at our annual #Free2Play event in #NFSThailand. Proud to say we will also be joined by some passionate @allsaints team members. @allsaints are a key supporter of ours in the fight against human trafficking. #WeAreNotForSale
#NotForSaleRomania is celebrating summer this week with a camp for all the program’s children - giving them memories and fun for a lifetime 🧡
Not For Sale: paving the way to offer freedom to more than 76,000 people since 2007.
We are Not For Sale! Honored to be featured this week on the Millie App. Find us there, or join us at the link in bio.
In the Kyangwali Refugee Camp in Uganda, we support over 200 girls to attend school - girls who otherwise would not receive an education. We believe no girl is for sale.
“When I was living on the streets I only ate plain bread and drank water. Now I’m living with Blue Dragon I look forward to our dinners - the food is so healthy and delicious. When we come together it feels like a family. We all really care for each other.” - “Vinh,” 16-year-old former street kid. Not For Sale operates the only shelter for boys in Vietnam, in partnership with Blue Dragon.
This is our reason. Today we share sad news. #NotForSaleSouthAfrica participant Mxolisi, one of the older kids in the program, was stabbed to death in Durban. It’s important to remember that street life is brutal, and can be lethal for these children. Director Tom Hewitt remembers a similar incident 25 years ago that brought him into this work in the first place. @nfs exists so that we can prevent deaths like these, and make all lives better. We have so much work to do together.
Every day we receive emails from people who want to know, "How can I help?" 🧡 People who understand how important this work is, and want to change lives and give freedom. Here's how: Follow the link in our bio to become a Freedom Fighter, and click "Fundraise." Create your own personal Not For Sale page and URL to give to friends and family, so they can donate to your cause. We can't do this alone. ✨ 100% of every donation we receive goes straight to our projects. Not one dollar to our administration or overhead. This is our guarantee. #wearenotforsale #freedomfighter
The number of trafficking victims in Bulgaria has reportedly doubled in the last years. Why? Lack of jobs and low-paying work make people vulnerable to traffickers and shady opportunities abroad, often resulting in severe sexual abuse and labor trafficking. #NotForSaleBulgaria is changing that. Link in bio to find out more about how we are supporting farmers and keeping families together, so no one will be for sale.
70% HIGHER MARGIN FOR FARMERS. 🥕 Our #NotForSaleBulgaria project keeps 70% more profit in the pockets of rural farmers who grow healthy, local food. This builds communities from the ground up - so families stay together, and no one is exploited.

Celebrating the bounty of the earth! 👨🏻🌾👩🏻🌾This earth day, will you stand for local farmers? We are calling on our community to invest in #NotForSaleBulgaria, our newest venture that connects local farmers to local buyers - giving 70% more of the profit margin to the farmers themselves. This keeps communities strong, families healthy, and everyone protected against exploitation. Good for people, and the planet.

Just last month, 20-year-old “Thinh” graduated from his IT and design course and started an internship at a printing company in Hanoi. Born into poverty, Thinh had never imagined this would be possible. Thinh grew up in Dien Bien province, a mountainous region in the northwest of Vietnam. Every day his parents toil the fields, trying to make enough to feed the whole family. Life is tough. To add to it, Thinh was born with a disability in his leg. With his mobility compromised, he relied on his father driving him to and from class. As a child, Thinh watched his elder brother leave school because his family couldn’t afford the fees. But Thinh was lucky. Because of your care and support, he could stay in school, and continue chasing his dreams. Through Not For Sale Vietnam's career guidance, Thinh was able to discover his passion. After graduating from high school, Thinh travelled over 500 km to Hanoi to begin his vocational training. Thinh finds joy in doing what he loves: practicing his newly found skills and fulfilling his dream of becoming a designer. Thinh’s journey wouldn’t have been possible without you. Your support means children like Thinh are getting the chance in life that they deserve. Thank you for changing lives.
@REBBL & Not For Sale have been named finalists in @fastcompany’s third annual ‘World Changing Ideas Awards'! Out of nearly 2,000 submissions across 17 categories, our team was named a finalist in the Social Justice category, alongside companies like Upsolve and The Billion Dollar Fund for Women. Our submission was focused on the Brazil Nut project in Peru and the launch of the new Banana Nut Protein REBBL. Congratulations - we're so thrilled that #socialenterprise is being seen and appreciated; so we can all change the world together! https://drg.io/2P6B5Ka
#NotForSaleNetherlands has recently opened its own training center. The center supports @dignitaamsterdam, our social enterprise restaurants in Amsterdam where women who are survivors of trafficking are given professional culinary training. The training center has a spacious professional kitchen and classroom. Trainees learn to prepare healthy soups in the kitchen. The space is also used for lessons in hygiene, basics in cooking, facilities, hosting, and theory. Because the center also serves as a production center for our Dignita brunch restaurants, trainees can also get intern and intensive one-on-one guidance from our chefs. Thank you to everyone for the support and donations that Not For Sale has already received to make this a reality. Link in bio to keep building this dream.
At #NotForSalePeru, women and girls are particularly vulnerable to exploitation. Many of the only jobs available to indigenous communities in the Amazon are in illegal logging and gold mining, taking the men out of the communities and the women left alone to raise children, exposed to exploitation and lack of any options. We are changing that. 🧡 We are investing in local jobs to sustainably harvest Brazil nuts, so men can stay with their families and communities. We are investing in education, so all girls can go to school and dream big. We are investing in infrastructure and training, so women can create small agribusiness and nutritious subsistence farming in their communities, together. • • • #endtrafficking #sustainableimpact #notforsale #dignity #endslavery #socialenterprise #dignity #freedom #choice #sustainability #wearenotforsale #notforsalesquadgoals #internationalwomensday #womenshistorymonth #girlsarenotforsale #womenarenotforsale

It's a time to celebrate women - how far we've come, and how far we've got to go. 🧡 Our Not For Sale projects focus on lifting up girls and women around the world, and we're so proud to work with companies who share this belief! @AllSaints has launched a t-shirt to honor all of our commitment to women - so we can all pursue our dreams with dignity and freedom. A portion of revenue from every shirt sold goes straight to Not For Sale, so we can empower girls with education, support, and freedom from exploitation around the world. With your purchase you show that no woman or girl should ever be for sale. We're all worth more than that. • • • #InternationalWomensDay #dignity #socialenterprise #notforsale #girlsarenotforsale #womenarenotforsale #girlsdontjustwannahavefun #girlswanteducation #girlswantdignity #girlswantfreedom
Swipe to see the before picture at #NFSRomania. A little nurturing is sometimes all that is needed to create a sustainable impact. In Romania, we started with a plot of earth. Now, we have a greenhouse garden that feeds everyone in our shelter. We serve over 100 survivors in Romania every year. What can you grow, to change the world for someone? • • • #endtrafficking #sustainableimpact #socialenterprise #notforsale #dignity #endslavery
We are humbled and amazed! This year’s Entrepreneurship Challenge winners knocked our socks off with their sustainable enterprise ideas, business savvy, and sparkling determination. • From left to right, our first place winner Jesca, creating a business of reusable feminine pads. Alfred, creating a much-in-demand motorcycle repair shop; and Kevin who has crafted a rechargeable and eco-friendly stove. Every participant this year received seed funding from @nfs and @shopspence • • • #socialenterprise #uganda #refugees #wearenotforsale #entrepreneurship @shopspence
Entrepreneurship creates opportunity for individuals, their families, and their entire communities. For 3 days the Entrepreneurship Challenge participants - all refugees - worked to refine their social enterprises ideas with business leaders, mentors, and other refugee entrepreneurs. On the first day, it was just an idea. On the last day, it was an actionable business plan. • #socialenterprise #uganda #refugees #wearenotforsale #entrepreneurship @shopspence
Uganda has over 1.1 MILLION refugees. The conflicts that drive people from their homes and into Uganda can be linked to unethically excavated diamonds. Each year, @nfs turns the tide through our Entrepreneurship Challenge - to bring training and seed funding to top young entrepreneurs in Uganda’s refugee camps. We are joined by @shopspence, who commits a portion of the price of every artisan, non-excavated diamond sold, to the seed funding for these entrepreneurs to create their social enterprises. This is good business. 💫
Our 2018 Entrepreneurship Challenge Winners reunited today for our 2019 challenge! These extraordinary people - all refugees living in Uganda - have made tremendous impact by starting their own social enterprises this year with seed funding from @nfs and @shopspence . This year, Simon, Benard, and Estheur return as mentors and friends to all the new applicants. Who will win this year? Stay tuned ... 🧡 #wearenotforsale #socialenterprise #refugees #uganda #entebbe #entrepreneurship #entrepreneur #sustainable #socialimpact #community #solidaritynotcharity

Happy Birthday Not For Sale! 🎂 It's been 12 years since we opened our doors, and our hearts. 🧡 It's been 10 years since we built housing for rescued children in Thailand.
