About me / About business or organisation:
Senhoa Foundation began as a counter-trafficking program under VOICE, a
501(c)(3) non-profit organization, based in Washington D.C. The name “Senhoa”
was conjured in 2007 for a jewelry line to support vulnerable persons and survivors
of human trafficking in Cambodia. Senhoa (pronounced “suh-no-a”) is a
combination of two Vietnamese words - “Sen” (lotus) and “Hoa” (flower). A lotus
flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with
breathtaking beauty, untouched by its impure surroundings. It is against this
imagery that “Senhoa” was conceptualized to represent women and children,
vulnerable to sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking.
In January 2010, Senhoa Foundation became its own independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit
organization, based in California, USA. Since this time, Senhoa has
established three programs with local implementing partners that address the
prevention, rehabilitation and reintegration of survivors of human trafficking and
persons vulnerable to sexual exploitation. In March 2011, Senhoa, LLC was
incorporated to produce and sell jewelry, handmade by vulnerable persons and
survivors of human trafficking and exploitation. The goal of Senhoa jewelry is to
create opportunities for survivors to earn an income, share their stories and raise
awareness against modern slavery. Senhoa, LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of
Senhoa Foundation.
Career history / Company history:
Senhoa Foundation has received numerous awards for their humanitarian
endeavors. In 2012, Senhoa’s founder was awarded the Inspiration Awards for
Women. In 2013, Senhoa Foundation was chosen as one of three organizations to
represent the girl effect as it received the Crystal of Hope Awards, presented by
Hilary Swank, Bill Clinton and Elton John. Most recently, Senhoa jewelry received
the SOURCE Awards, the global awards for sustainable fashion. Senhoa
Foundation and its jewelry lines have been featured in various magazines, including
Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, The Huffington Post and the Daily Telegraph.
