Modern Slavery

Bonded labor is the least known method of slavery, however is the most widely used method used to enslave people. They are subjected to sexual and physical violence on a daily basis. A person is usually tricked and trapped into working for a no pay job or a job that pays very little for seven days a week.

600,000 to 800,000 women and children are trafficked through international borders. Out of the 79% women made up 66% while girls made up the other 13%. Sex trafficking is mainly caused from inequality since women are undervalued in places such as India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

Child Labor is often defined as work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity; thus being harmful to physical and mental development. It refers to work that is mentally, physically, socially, morally, and harmful to children. It refers to work that deprives them of the opportunity of attending school, interfering with school, obliging them to leave school, and requiring them to combine both school work along with increasing long and heavy working hours.

In Afghanistan- an ancient practice called the Bacha Bazi is the practice of young boys are taught to dance They are often forced to wear traditional female dresses and put on a show for older men. Afterwards they are sexually abused and most of these young boys come from very low income families. Impoverished young boys who usually don’t have a family to rely on and live on the streets are drawn to this practice due to their lack of financial support.

Thailand such as Burma, Cambodia, and Laos, supply 90 percent of the 300,000 shrimp workers in Thailand. Some are lured by promises of well-paid factory jobs only to be forced aboard.
