End Child Slavery Week
My memories of childhood are peppered with many things—school, recess, Saturday morning cartoons, friends and more. A few things that are not there are long days, back-breaking, dangerous and hazardous work, abusive and unsafe locations and exploitative situations and people. But for 5.5 million children around the world—those are not memories, they are daily realities that have snatched their childhood from them.
We are coming to the end of End Child Slavery Week 2014but there is still time to act—join recent Nobel Peace Prize winner, Kailash Satyarthi in a petition to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that supports making ending child slavery a priority for the UN Sustainable Development Goals agenda for the next 15 years.
Sign the End Child Slavery petition.
