New Jersey Chapter
Durga Tree International’s mission is to educate and economically empower survivors of Modern Slavery. Through sound business practices, creating economic platforms and educating survivors, Durga Tree supports programs which enable survivors to become thrivers, thereby increasing their chances of remaining outside of the slavery cycle, as well as protecting their next generation. We believe it is the basic human right of every individual to have personal freedom, no matter their socio-economic status, race, gender, or religion. Only through collaboration and unity will we, together, end human slavery in the 21st century.
As a chapter of Durga Tree, we affirm the mission of Durga Tree International and provide support through fundraising, community outreach, and education in New Jersey and the surrounding areas.
Kendra DeBree volunteered her time at Durga Tree International’s 2nd Annual Fall Gala in 2014 and became instantly passionate about every child having the basic right of freedom over their own bodies & lives. She has dedicated herself to this mission ever since. After traveling to Guatemala City with the 2016 Service Immersion Team in March and spending 4 days at the partner shelter and interacting with the very young girls and their babies, Kendra is not just a mother anymore, she is an abolitionist!
