As a survivor of modern slavery I devoted my life to raise global awareness and taking action to end modern slavery now! I do that by taking every day risks to share my testimony openly, to investigate my own personal experiences with modern slavery so hopefully one day we can understand this complex issues and build a bridge to free about 50 million people that still remain in slavery.


My work impact more than 160 countries and serves as a catalyst for global reconciliation via Transpara Trade agreement and Seven Keys. By raising awareness and taking action I champion the causes of all survivors of modern slavery by working with Local women’s Handicrafts, Empowerment Collective and Global commission to end modern slavery.  Along with my artistic skills, I champion the causes I document and have been invited to deliver speeches at the UN, EU Parliament, The Vatican, & TEDx stages.

Let's connect if you would like to work with me.

Empowerment Collective

Empowerment Collective not only transforms individual lives but also shapes societal norms, driving us closer to a world where freedom and dignity are inalienable human rights.


Local Women's Handicrafts

Local Women’s Handicrafts was founded with a big goal: To lift artisans up who have been exploited in fashion industry; to provide them dignified jobs that give them opportunity, skills, and a sense of independence; Nasreen Sheikh founded LWH as a small shop in Kathmandu when she was still a teenager. As a survivor of Modern Slavery, she opened LWH to take control of her own destiny and give herself the kind of hope she’d previously never thought possible. Nasreen soon began supporting artisans who made handcrafted textiles they could sell at her shop and receive living wage. As she saw the artisans  gain confidence and light return to their eyes, she realized she had the opportunity to support disadvantaged artisans. With your support we have touched 100's of artisans life. Our goal is to support all artisans and create a textile industry that honors sustainability, human rights and dignity.
