Join #FREEDOMFORGIRLS and commit to helping end human trafficking and modern slavery.

71% of modern slavery victims are women and girls.1 With an estimated 40.3 million people victims of modern slavery and human trafficking, that’s a lot of girls around the world who are being exploited for someone else’s benefit, or treated like a commodity, unable to leave because of threats, violence, coercion, and abuse of power.

Who are they? Girls like Phoebe*, a 17-year-old victim in Kenya forced into the commercial sex industry, or Sophie*, a 15-year-old victim who felt her childhood was stolen. She said no one seemed to want to help her whilst she was enduring two years of exploitation having been trafficked to the UK.

Sign the pledge to help end modern slavery and trafficking of girls, and join the fight to secure Sustainable Development Goal 8.7:

“Take immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking and secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour, including recruitment and use of child soldiers, and by 2025 end child labour in all its forms.”2

Let’s join together and help stop girls from experiencing what girls like Sophie and Phoebe experienced. If we are big and loud enough we can hold governments, businesses and civil society to account and make ending modern slavery a priority.

#FREEDOMFORGIRLS, and freedom for all.

*Names changed to protect survivor identity and privacy.

First we need to eliminate those who have supplied the demand side of this pure evil.

It’s time to stop treating girls and women like a commodity instead of a human being.

You got to have some sustainable factories or industry that girls and boys on Mindanao in the Philippines can learn skills at and make a high enough minimum wage so that don’t allow themselves to be trafficked to oil rich Middle East countries, such as Bahrain, as live-in, 24 hour a day household slaves, and have their passports taken from them upon arrival and then be forced to sign new contracts at half the wages they signed up for in Manila. May God Bless and protect you.

Not impressed by the video. It shows very suggestive poses for girls in the dance movements, particularly the legs apart and the arms sweeping the body – this kind of dance was never devised to accompany a message of protection and dignity. The whole video resembles a rap music/pop video, which have always struck me as put together by men concentrating on explicit physical and sexual presentation of a person. Looking angry doesn’t offset this.

I will continue to fight for these children. We are their voices. SPEAK UP!



Help us reach 30,000

I believe no girl should risk being a victim of human trafficking or modern slavery. That every girl’s freedom is a birthright, not a privilege.

I pledge to learn about modern slavery and human trafficking, and to use my voice to take action, so that together, in support of Sustainable Development Goal 8.7, we will end it by 2030.

Freedom United will protect your privacy while updating you on campaigns, news and stories about modern slavery.
