  • 14. What are they doing?
    • To try and fix this issue they are sending in teams to different countries to interview, help work, helping get their rights, and get food for the people.
    • They are also raising awareness, which is good because not enough people are aware of how drastic international labor is.
  • 15. Things we like about their program
    • What I like most about their program is that its just such a big organization. They can send crews everywhere plus they have a lot of money that they give to charity.
    • Also I like how they directly try to help, not like some other NGO’s that just send money and are satisfied.

    • Make a you tube video because a lot of people go to you tube every day
    • Raise awareness of this issue, very little people know much about it

    • Our group wants to tell people about our issue because of the unfair treatments and labor.
    • In Chinese factories people get abused and they get the worse working environments
  • 25. Purpose and Message
    • In these factories or construction sites people get an unsafe workplace and they don't get the basic protection equipments.
    • In their dorms over 15 men share a dormitory not bigger than a common bedroom. We hope to tell people our message by raising awareness and starting mini organizations in schools all around china.

    • It has images that shows the severity of Improper treatment of immigrants in china.
    • Our wiki also shows statistics about how drastic the problem is here in China

  • 30. Why should you care??
    • People should really care about this because not only adult men are involved in International labor but also women and children are being treated wrong and getting hurt.
