There are more slaves today than at any other time in history. Every year, some 2.5 million people become victims of human trafficking.
In Israel today over 12,000 men, women and children are involved in the sex-industry. A recent poll indicated that 76% would like to leave, but feel trapped with no option of escape.
Kite.Pride makes a difference by repurposing high-quality sporting materials such as kite-surfing kites, yacht sails, and parachutes into unique bags. Through the sale of each bag, they provide and create more job opportunities for those in need.

Kite.Pride is a social enterprise that provides jobs to former victims of human-trafficking in Israel. The organization is able to help those in need re-enter the labor market by providing them with a safe work environment and a sense of family and belonging.
