Nomi Network got its name from an 8-year-old girl named Nomi, who Diana Mao, the President and Co-Founder along with her other two Co-Founders, Supei Liu and Alissa Moore-Williams, had met while travelling in Cambodia. Nomi had been trafficked by her stepfather and suffered unthinkable physical and sexual abuse. Despite the trauma she experienced, Nomi was a warm and resilient child.
Nomi Network was founded to be the network behind Nomi, to provide a future for thousands of other women and girls like her. Today, Nomi has grown into a beautiful young woman with a generous heart. She inspires them to keep fighting for a world without slavery where every woman can know her full potential.
Nomi Network believes that by providing safe and sustainable economic opportunities, women are protected from being trafficked and are empowered to rewrite the narratives of future generations.
Nomi Network provides training in life skills and technical skills for survivors, and women and girls at risk. Each survivor is taught to draw, design and make products using organic or recycled materials. Every product you buy provides jobs for these survivors and women at risk of human trafficking and helps end modern-day slavery.
