Millions of men, women and children around the world are forced to lead lives as slaves. Although this exploitation is often not called slavery, the conditions are the same. People are sold like objects, forced to work for little or no pay and are at the mercy of their 'employers'. Slavery exists today despite the fact that it is banned in most of the countries where it is practiced. Contemporary slavery takes various forms and affects people of all ages, sex and race.


Anti-Slavery International works at local, national and international levels to eliminate all forms of slavery around the world. Our international programmes involve working closely with groups in local communities, learning from their experience and empowering them to combat slavery through awareness raising at the local level, education and community building. We also raise awareness through public campaigning, education and outreach, and lobbying of national and international governments
