Freeset currently provides over 200 women with dignified employment. It began in 2001 shortly after Kerry & Annie Hilton left their New Zealand lives and unknowingly moved into the largest red light district in Kolkata. After forging friendships with their neighbors, they knew they wanted to devote their lives to giving these women freedom. They have inspired many more to join them in this effort.
What started with only a handful of women, now has grown into multiple locations with a vision to foster more freedom businesses that can create boundless opportunities. Freeset’s vision is to create jobs for 10,000 women.
