Revere on the Road


Made by Survivors is an international nonprofit and social enterprise, which employs and educates survivors of slavery and people at extreme risk, including many women and children living in extreme poverty. 

Their jewelry program, lead by Revere graduate Dianna Badalament, provides training in highly respected professions and wages high enough to pull people out of poverty and support themselves independently. Beautiful jewelry and gifts made by our survivor-artisans are comply with Fair Trade standards and support women's empowerment, with 100% of profits going to support rescue and aftercare.

The Academy is currently collecting good functioning, gently used tools for donation to this important project that Dianna will take to India. The project is in desperate need of hand tools, especially Swiss or German files, and needle files. Tools can also be shipped to Dianna's US address. See the project's tool wish list for more details.
