Hey everyone! So, after several e-mails back n forth from Eden and myself, I give you a little surprise!
This means for you as my valued reader, when you purchase something from me whether that be my Cinematography to my photography services 10% of sales will go to Eden.
Eden serves to restore freedom for the captives of Asia’s red light districts through holistic programs- transforming body, mind and spirit. Using their international jewelry business as a platform, they provide career and skill training- empowering women for a new life and future. Eden continually innovate prevention and outreach programs- transforming entire communities. Eden is a voice to the oppressed, a light to the darkness.
Eden Ministry began in 2003 when a group of women sensed God's burden for prostitutes as they walked the streets of Asia's red light districts.
Since that time, they have discovered that most of the women they meet didn't choose the life they are living. Many were tricked into prostitution through deception or trafficked through organized crime syndicates. Others simply left their villages in search of employment in the big cities, hoping to earn an income for their poverty stricken families. However, their limited education and lack of contacts in the cities seldom lead to decent job opportunities. Instead, the lure of a high salary with no educational requirements, drives many such women to prostitution.
Eden's approach to serving the needs of these woman with God's love takes many forms:
ALTERNATIVE EMPLOYMENT: JEWELRY MAKING: To enable women to have a sustainable income during their journey of restoration, we created Eden Jewelry, an international jewelry company. Jewelry making has been one of the most effective alternative career options available through our program. All the proceeds from the jewelry sales go to salaries for the girls and food and shelter expenses, as well as providing new training opportunities. So, hurry, go to their shop and purchase something! They make great gifts for loved ones and they are hand made!
SHELTERS: Eden Ministry has set up supervised apartments, where women who are ready to leave prostitution can get free room and board. Trained counselors are on site to mentor, disciple and counsel the women through their healing journey and to help them grow spiritually in Christ. The women can also learn life skills and train for a new career.
MEDICAL CLINICS: Due to the spread of HIV/AIDS and other STDs in Asia, Eden is involved in helping these women understand more about the daily health dangers they face. We also offer crisis pregnancy counseling and free medical check-ups and treatment as part of our holistic approach to reaching out to these women.

i absolutely love what Eden is doing for these women, kids and even some men. Things like this is what makes the world a better place to live in. So, I encourage you to either purchase a photography session, cinematography session, or something from Eden. so i can start giving back to our community.
