Destiny Foundation, based in Kolkata, India, is a social enterprise committed to producing high quality accessories, home decor and stationery products. We focus on providing livelihood opportunities for both, rescued women who have been victimized by human trafficking, and for those whose circumstances make them vulnerable to being trafficked.
Destiny Foundation was founded by Smarita Sengupta and Rebecca Bavinger in 2007. In their effort to create a platform for empowering girls rescued from trafficking, the founders received initial support from Made by Survivors and the Clayton Family. Over the years, the operations of the Foundation have been extended thanks to the continued support of a number of partner organizations across the world.
Our journey so far would have been much more challenging, if not impossible, without the help of the organizations who have partnered with us over the years. We have a number of wonderful associates sprinkled in all parts of the globe who patronize the products made by us and ensure that they reach out to as many consumers as possible.Over the years, the Foundation are been helped greatly by its many volunteers and interns. Coming from all over India as well as from other countries, our volunteers and student interns have contributed in diverse ways to our evolution helping in every aspect of the organization, from record-keeping and documentation to training and counseling.
