Human Slavery

[Tradução para português em breve]
There are an estimated 27 million people enslaved by violence and held against their wills for the purposes of exploitation in the world today. These are human beings... each one of them, forced into bonded labor, trafficking, forced labor, commercial sexual exploitation of children, early and forced marriage, child labor and/or ‘chattel’ slavery (traditional slavery). Through this Interactive Map you can take a look at slavery as it is today around the world.

Maiti Nepal 
Maiti's focus has always been on prevention of girl trafficking, a burning issue for Nepal. Rescuing girls forced into prostitution and helping to find economic alternatives have been our key struggle. Rehabilitation, although not literally possible especially with former prostitutes, is one major challenge we have accepted in our work.
