Thanks for your support, Jason! Check out video of his Ghana trip here.
Children are enslaved in Ghana’s fishing regions. Women & girls are forced into marriage & sex work in DR Congo. A gold rush is fuels sex slavery in Senegal. Racism & social exclusion enslave residents of Mauritania. Kenyan children are trapped in forced labor & sexual exploitation.
Impoverished children are forced to leave home and toil as domestic servants in Haiti. Migrants are enslaved in the construction, agriculture and hospitality industries in the Dominican Republic. Landless farmworkers are enslaved on ranches and plantations in Brazil.
There are 20 countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Modern slavery exists throughout the region. Our programs are raising awareness and helping local organizations combat traffickers.
Illegal debts & a lack of access to justice plague India’s marginalized. In Vietnam, urban poverty among migrants increases vulnerability. In the Philippines, inequality & migration fuel trafficking. In Nepal, thousands head overseas to find work & are tricked by traffickers.
