  • 2. 27 million of slaves There are more slaves today than were seized from Africa in four centuries of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

  • 5. Fact Book The Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) www.catwinternational.org India, along with Thailand and the Philippines, has 1.3 million children in its sex-trade centers. The children come from relatively poorer areas and are trafficked to relatively richer ones. (Soma Wadhwa, "For sale childhood," Outlook, 1998) In cross border trafficking, India is a sending, receiving and transit nation. Receiving children from Bangladesh and Nepal and sending women and children to Middle Eastern nations is a daily occurrence. (Executive Director of SANLAAP, Indrani Sinha, Paper on Globaliation and Human Rights"
  • 6. Fact Book The Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) www.catwinternational.org About 5,000-7,000 Nepalese girls are trafficked to India every day. 100,000-160,000 Nepalese girls are prostituted in brothels in India. Bought for as little as Rs (Np) 1,000, girls have been known to fetch up to Rs 30,000 in later transactions. Girls may not leave the brothels until they have repaid their debt, at which time they are sick, with HIV and/or tuberculosis, and often have children of their own. (Soma Wadhwa, "For sale childhood," Outlook, 1998)
  • 7. How We Can End Slavery By Kevin Bales One of the world's leading experts on modern-day slavery; Director of Free the Slaves; Professor of sociology at London's University of Surrey Roehampton; Consultant to the United Nations on slavery and trafficking. To bring people to freedom and to end slavery, three things have to happen:
  • 8. How We Can End Slavery? 1 - Public awareness has to grow, and there has to be public agreement that it is time to end slavery once and for all. 2 - Money needs to be spent to eradicate slavery, but not nearly as much as you might think. 3 - Governments must enforce their own anti-slavery laws.
  • 9. Imagine that after 5,000 years of slavery we commit ourselves to achieving its eradication in our lifetimes. Imagine that your children and your grandchildren will grow up in a world where slavery is just seen as an ugly blot on our history. Imagine a world where every person is born in freedom and lives in liberty.

  • 19. Some people quietly reveal In the manner of the meek Some people shout the way they feel To a radical degree Some people sing it to express While others hear another call Some people speak with subtleness Some don't rely on words at all But let me tell you 'bout... We all are pieces of the whole With different feelings to evoke Giving distinction to the role Different players-different strokes But let me tell you 'bout… Some people walk Some people race Some people vary in their pace But God can use what you can give Within the mystery of His ways Don't underestimate...
