Strength & Stem UK
Jess Visser who founded Strength and Stem loves that flowers are a symbol of new life, resilience, and hope and that the creativity and flexibility in the floral industry is well suited to helping women heal from the trauma they have endured. Women who have often ended up in a foreign country with little support after the job they thought they were coming to ended up being part of the modern slavery sector and not what they were promised. Strength & Stem exists to empower female survivors of human trafficking through meaningful employment, life-giving community, and skills training, breaking the cycle of exploitation. Helping survivors not only to survive but to flourish.
