About Nomi Network

Nomi Network is an international nonprofit agency fighting human trafficking in India and Cambodia. Human trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery that enslaves 46 million people worldwide. Nomi Network’s mission is to provide economic opportunities to survivors and women at risk for human trafficking by equipping them with leadership, entrepreneurship, and production skills to become financially independent.

Nomi Network provides training, job placement, and production opportunities for women in Cambodia and India to create beautiful, quality products that we then sell online, in stores, and at events. Proceeds from all sales go back to our programs to increase each woman’s financial independence and provide protection from slavery.
