Youth Issues - Modern Day Slavery

Slavery did not end with abolition in the 19th century. Slavery continues today and harms people in every country in the world. People forced to work in agriculture, domestic work and factories. Children in sweatshops producing goods sold globally. Entire families forced to work for nothing to pay off generational debts. Girls forced to marry older men.

There are estimated 40.3 million people in modern slavery around the world, including 10 million children.

Even though most people think that slavery only exists overseas, modern slavery in the UK is thriving. The British Government estimates that tens of thousands of people are in modern slavery in the UK today.

Here are some past winning film that have taken on this difficult and growing issue.
