Ruth Doane, resident of Holland, Michigan started managing Craft/Vendor Fair events. These are fundraising events for her ministry called Freedom Goods, which sells craft goods mainly made by women coming out of sex trafficking or by people trying to provide for their families in Third World Countries.
All fundraising and selling efforts go to a non-profit in Uganda called The Gift of a Girl Foundation. This organization helps girls in a remote area of Kumi. They help pay for the girls tuition so they can get an education. This organization does so many things to help the girls such as having local leaders come in to talk to them about things like hygiene, sewing, cooking, bible study, and much more. They are working on different projects to try and become self-sufficent, but this is in the beginning stages.
