Care for All – Reach All – Serve All
Child slavery traps children and young people into body-and-soul-destroying labour, such as brick making, clothing/textile factories, cleaning, smuggling or prostitution. It is illegal all over the world yet in many countries laws against it are inadequately enforced. Children may be born into slavery, kidnapped, tricked, or sold into slavery by family members to repay debt, crimes or earn some cash.
Non-Government Organisations work to identify and prevent the root causes of child slavery, while also attempting to free children from slavery.
It is estimated that children are sold into slavery for as little as $20… a debt which can take generations to repay, leaving children trapped in the cycle of slavery.
To free children out of slavery, CARASA needs to raise money to pay for each child’s freedom. The question is: how much is a child’s freedom and childhood worth to you?
The price to free a child can be as little as the cost of three cups of coffee, or two hamburgers. A small change in your habits can make huge changes in a child’s life – that is all it costs to give back somebody’s childhood.
How much is it worth to you?
