Nobel Laureate Asks Countries to End Slavery


NEW DELHI  The U.N. global development pact is a big step towards stopping human slavery, but Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi says now governments must pledge to follow through…

Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi is an Indian who started a non-profit, Save the Childhood Movement.  It is estimated that the organization has saved 80,000 children from slavery.  Satyarthi says:  “Freedom has always been considered a matter of human rights, but for the first time it has been acknowledged that without freedom there can be no development. But now the question is how to implement it.  Governments should now prioritise child-centred development goals and devise more holistic policies interlinking education, trafficking, slavery and child labour and violence against children, because they are all connected.”
