Bethan and Ellie, both university students from Enactus Sheffield work with the survivors of human trafficking, domestic and sexual abuse in the Sheffield scheme HOPE.
Bethan was an original member of HOPE, helping to develop it to date, with Ellie now directing the scheme. HOPE started as a jewellery business where the women are mentored one‐to‐one, to gain soft and business skills.
It then expanded additionally to a cosmetics business, which offers temporary employment to the women, helping them find permanent employment. HOPE has so far mentored and empowered 110 women, and raised awareness of human trafficking throughout the country.
