Nomi Network is a non-profit organization based in New York dedicated to fighting human trafficking. Our organization is based on the desire to personally help women who were victims of human trafficking, by starting at the individual level.
Our co-founder Diana Mao was inspired to start Nomi Network in 2007 when she was on a business trip to Cambodia. She was shocked when a father she and some co-workers were interviewing offered his youngest daughter to a male colleague of hers. She sensed that this was an action done out of hopelessness and a lack of options. When Diana came back to the U.S., she was determined to do something. In 2009 she founded Nomi Network with Supei Liu and Alissa Moore. The mission of our organization is to empower women and their families, helping them to escape the cycle of poverty and trafficking.
Nomi Network works with women in India and Cambodia who are at risk or survivors of human trafficking. Through our training programs and partnerships with other organizations, we teach women the necessary skills to become entrepreneurs, helping them to send their children to school and support their families.
We are an organization committed to using eco-friendly materials, and rely on repurposing fabric for our products. We use recycled organic and handwoven cotton, as well as recycled rice bag material for all of our products.
Each Nomi product is handmade, and some are hand painted or embroidered. We are members of the Fair Trade Federation, because we believe that every worker should be paid a living and proper wage.
