The world map looks depressing when you flag it with the types of slavery that people endure in different countries. But it can look quite hopeful when you also flag it with the frontline projects that are combating slavery around the globe.
That’s what the new Action on the Ground map from End Slavery Now has done. They’re launching their new map this week. It shows where and how Free the Slaves and other groups are taking a stand for freedom. Leading anti-slavery organizations have uploaded their projects, photos and links so it’s easy to find out who’s doing what, where, and how.
Perhaps just as importantly, the map allows funders, activists, organizations and agencies to see the gaps, the places where work isn’t being done. As the abolition movement gains momentum this will help everyone focus resources wisely. 27 million people are counting on it!
