Our vision is a world where every woman can know her full potential.

Our Mission

Our mission is to end human trafficking by creating pathways to safe employment, empowering women and girls to break cycles of exploitation in their families and communities. 

A Girl with Much to Give

Our organization is named after a girl named Nomi, whom the founders met while traveling in Cambodia. By the time Nomi was eight years old, she had been previously trafficked by her stepfather and suffered unthinkable abuse. Nomi Network was founded to be the network behind Nomi, providing a future for thousands of other women and girls like her. Today, Nomi is a resilient young woman who radiates warmth despite the trauma she has faced. Nomi inspires us to keep fighting for a world where every woman and girl can know her full potential.

“While the situation in India is incredibly worrying, we have hope after hearing about the holistic response of Nomi Network and their women. Nomi Network’s economic empowerment program teaches women life skills, such as how to save money, and maintain proper hygiene. These skills are now essential to them and their communities.”

“Upon graduation from Nomi’s vocational training program, women can celebrate the economic stability that distances both them and their children from a trafficker’s grip.”

“Nomi Network partners with a training center in Cambodia where women ages 18 to 35 learn how to sew and create eco-friendly handbags and accessories. The handbags, made with recycled rice bags, are sold by retailers around the world. Ms. Mao says 100% of the profits from product sales are invested back into training and education opportunities for the women.”
