Over 40 million people worldwide are trapped in some form of modern slavery. People have a responsibility to put a stop to this crime. At Walk Free Foundation, they focus on a multi-faceted approach to engage a number of stakeholders including faiths, businesses, academics, civil society organisations and governments in global initiatives to drive change and build awareness around the complex and often hidden nature of modern slavery.
An estimated 40.3 million people are victims of modern slavery across the world. Those highest at risk include those who are physically or linguistically isolated, culturally disoriented, subjected to crushing debts and have little to no knowledge of their rights.
A strong multi-faceted approach is needed to end modern slavery.
Their integrated strategy includes building a robust knowledge base to inform action, driving legislative change in key countries and harnessing the power of businesses and faiths.
Through a combination of direct implementation, grassroots community engagement and working in partnership in faiths, businesses, academics, NGOs and governments around the world; they can end modern slavery.
