Free The Slaves
Free The Slaves is an organization based in Washington DC, USA and is dedicated to ending slavery of all types around the world. FTS believes that slavery flourishes when people cannot meet their basic needs, and lack economic opportunity, education, healthcare and honest government. A holistic approach is required to eradicate slavery forever.
This website has a tremendous amount of information about modern day slavery with videos and links to activists and organizations around the world.
Dwaraknath Reddy Ramanarpanam Trust
Two trusts were established by Mr. Dwaraknath Reddy, Chairman of the Nutrine Group of Companies, dedicating his lifetime personal earnings and wealth toward charitable and developmental activities for the poor.
Although this organization does not directly address slave labor, it does address the root cause of most slavery situations - extreme poverty & deperation to meet basic needs. The trusts are managed by Ms. Anita Reddy—a social activist with many years experience working with the poor.
CNN Freedom Project
CNN is joining the fight to end modern-day slavery by shining a spotlight on the horrors of modern-day slavery, amplifying the voices of the victims, highlighting success stories and helping unravel the complicated tangle of criminal enterprises trading in human life.
CNN will use the full range of our international resources to track and champion this story. We will be in the countries where people are abducted, traded and passed into the hands of the smugglers. We will follow the routes as people are ruthlessly moved to areas where they can generate the highest return on investment.
