Considered a modern day form a slavery, sex trafficking is one of the worst human rights abuses of our time. As young women ourselves, we consider the restoration and rehabiliation of sex trafficking victims to be not just an act of charity, but a moral obligation. By purchasing a cake, 20% of the profits will go to Bay Area anti-trafficking safe houses and policy organizations. For more information see Bay Area Anti-Trafficking Coalition and Freedom House.
If you have a cause you are passionate about, nominate it to be featured on this page by emailing DorisDriveDelights@gmail.com your name, cause, and the organization of your choice addressing this issue.
Today 1.2 billion people live in extreme poverty, on less than $1.25 per day. Economic development organizations, such as Village Enterprise have designed innovative ways of empowering the rural extremely poor to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. Through mentoring, training, and a $150 grant, the Village Enterprise program supports East African microentrepreneurs as a sustainble form of poverty alleviation. By purchasing something from our Delights Menu, 20% of the profits will go towards a Village Enterprise small business grant. For more information see Village Enterprise, a San Carlos based nonprofit that operates in Kenya and Uganda.
