Child Slavery

  1. 1. Child slavery By: Amanda Purfield
  2. 2. What is the significance of child slavery?
  3. 3. Why I Chose my Topic. I wanted to learn about this, because I feel very bad for the poor kids that have to do this, and because kids should never have to go through that. I also feel bad for the child slaves because they have to sleep on the floor also they are not allowed to play with anyone or go to school .
  4. 4. What I already Knew… <ul><li>I know that kids only have 1 meal a day (not very big). </li></ul><ul><li>I also know that there parents sold them to people they don’t know, and that they thought they could trust them (but they don’t know what they are going to do there kids). </li></ul><ul><li>Also that some kids get rescued. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Research. <ul><li>From the ages 12 to 16 to work at coca farms, and to work in other places you see kids from the ages 9 to 12 </li></ul><ul><li>Broker scouts kidnap children (while they are playing outside) </li></ul><ul><li>Some children in child slavery get punished for not doing what they are told usually beaten some others even get killed </li></ul>
  6. 6. Research. <ul><li>Some places that have child slavery is Angola, Sudan, Somalia, or Chad. </li></ul><ul><li>Estimates there are more than 200,000 children are in Africa in child slavery they call it “ the worst forms of child labor” </li></ul><ul><li>Over 240,000 children have been sold as slaves </li></ul>
  7. 7. Research. <ul><li>Most of our children play with teddy bears, children in West Africa play with machetes. </li></ul><ul><li>27 million people today are under some type of slavery. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Did you know? <ul><li>1). That there is about 27 million people today under some type of slavery. </li></ul><ul><li>2). Every chocolate bar you buy/eat is like saying that you are saying it is fine with how they make it.( Which is usually child slavery.) </li></ul><ul><li>3). That some places in Africa try to limit child abuse. </li></ul><ul><li>4). That there is about 200,000 to 240,000 kids in child slavery. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Question I Still Have… <ul><li>Why do people find it fun to torture kids and then make them slaves? </li></ul>
  10. 10. Work Cited. <ul><li>1). http://www1.american.edu/ted/chocolate-slave.htm </li></ul><ul><li>2). http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/world/africa/412628.stm </li></ul><ul><li>3). http://www.helium.com/items/578667-child-slavery-in-africa </li></ul><ul><li>4). http://afrospear.wordpress.com/2008/03/12/modern-slavery-in-west-africa/ </li></ul><ul><li>5). http://www.thewordly.org/articlespages/articles2006/may06articles/cocoafarmslavery/html </li></ul><ul><li>6). http://www.edusolution.com/ourworldafrifanslavery.htm </li></ul><ul><li>7). http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/12/28/chcild-maid-trafficking-sp_n_153814.html </li></ul><ul><li>8). http://www.infoplease.com/spot/slavery/.html </li></ul><ul><li>9). http://accidentalblogger.typed.com/accidental-blogger/2006/10/child_slavery-i.html </li></ul>
