Child slavery in India - in pictures

Up to 200,000 children a year fall into the hands of slave traders in India, many sold by their poverty-stricken parents for as little as 11


"African women and young girls are regularly sold into sexual slavery all over Europe, especially in Italy. These women and young girls are made to sacrifice their dignity, psychological, mental and physical health, while slaving away to repay the pimps who ferried them to Europe, under the guise, that they were taking these naive and helpless African females to Europe for a better life. Many of these women and girls do not even make it to Europe."

“Women are secretly sold in China.”

Kim Sang-hun, director of the Database Center for North Korean Human Rights, estimates 20,000 to 30,000 North Korean women are now entrapped in China in what many observers see as a form of slavery. "Most of the women," he says, "are forced into sexual slavery." Link


UNICEF places 16 percent of children between the ages of 5-14 years old in developing countries are engaged in forms of child labor, and in the least developed countries the number almost doubles to 29 percent overall, while Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rates of child labor at 33 percent" Link

    "In nature, 105 boys are born for every 100 girls. This ratio is biologically ironclad. Between 104 and 106 is the normal range, and that's as far as the natural window goes. Any other number is the result of unnatural events.

    Yet today in India there are 112 boys born for every 100 girls. In China, the number is 121—though plenty of Chinese towns are over the 150 mark. China's and India's populations are mammoth enough that their outlying sex ratios have skewed the global average to a biologically impossible 107. But the imbalance is not only in Asia. Azerbaijan stands at 115, Georgia at 118 and Armenia at 120. " LINK

    African Slavery Continues!

    "The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) estimates that global human trafficking is worth between $7-billion and $12-billion annually, making it the third most profitable criminal activity after trade in narcotics and arms.

    "The situation is nothing short of, I would say, a modern-day slavery," Dr Sadig Rasheed, UNICEF  regional director for South Asia, said at a meeting in Colombo.

    "It is one of the blights of South Asia. The situation is getting out of hand."

    Around 500,000 women and children are being trafficked each year in Asia, with the lion's share of them in South Asia, Rasheed added. That compares to a worldwide figure of 1.2 million."

    CHINA .....  More Persecution of China's Women and Children
    "Assistant US Secretary of State Arthur Dewey testified, "China's birth planning law and policies retain harshly coercive elements in law and practice. Forced abortion and sterilization are egregious violations of human rights, and should be of concern to the global human rights community, as well as to the Chinese themselves. Unfortunately, we have not seen willingness in other parts of the international community to stand with us on these human rights issues." He said that Chinese government officials have recently promised to roll back some of their coercive measures, but noted that it is "practical implementation of these measures that matters, not public pronouncements.""

    Human trafficking and slavery is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world. So serious is the problem that the United Nations has made 2004 an anti-slavery year.


    "West Africa is one of the areas that are the most exploited by criminals who sell people into modern-day slavery. According to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), some 200,000 children are trafficked out of western and central Africa each year. UNICEF defines child trafficking as the transportation and exploitation of unwilling or unknowing children, often for slave labor or sex work." National Geographic Special Report

    "Slavery in Niger is not an obscure thing, nor a curious relic of the past, it is an intrinsic part of society today.
