Beauty For Ashes is a non-profit 501-c3 organization founded by Lauren Spiewick (see Lauren’s story below) in 2014. We support efforts in North Africa to prevent, rescue, and restore victims of human trafficking. North Africa is a strategic location for combating human trafficking as it is the literal ground for which majority of the trade routes exist from all of Africa to Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
We currently support two projects in Morocco, in Fes and Casablanca. We hope to expand into other North African countries, to help fight against the injustice of human trafficking.
All human beings are intrinsically endowed with dignity and created with purpose and beauty.
Men and women are equally created for dignity and beauty, and are equal in value and worth.
No human being has the right to claim ownership of another human being, either by physical force, coercion, or deception regardless of relationship or monetary transaction.
Human beings are the greatest assets of every society, and it is in the best interest of everyone in a community to nurture and encourage the natural gifts, creativity, and talents of all its citizens.
