Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Aruna Project is an international human rights nonprofit dedicated to freeing, employing, and empowering survivors of human trafficking. By providing empowerment through employment, Aruna creates lifelong freedom for women by helping them find their voice, experience independence, and develop a marketable job skill alongside a sisterhood of others who have overcome. Through its products and events, you can literally help set free and give the liberating power of choice to women like Reshma, Fathima, Pooja and so many others, while also celebrating freedom in your own adventure.

The Aruna Run Race Series is the catalyst of the freedom process, with the money raised flowing into Aruna’s Training Centers in areas of high sexual exploitation in South Asia. Once freed, the women are offered full-time employment in Aruna’s Freedom Business, where they are trained to produce the line of Athleisure bags and headbands sold in its online store, at events, and at select retail locations. The proceeds from the sale of the products are reinvested into the Freedom Business to fund the holistic care each Artisan receives: a living wage, safe housing, healthcare, retirement savings, and counseling.
