|Help End Child Slavery in India|
On the day that Durga Mala was rescued, she lay crying on the stone floor, where she was attempting to cool her back. She was 11 years old and her skin was covered with blisters, from her shoulder blades to her buttocks. A few days earlier, her owners had poured hot oil over her because they thought she was working too slowly.
Millions of children in India could share the same fate, trapped in the nightmare of modern slavery and forced to work in brothels, stone quarries, factories, homes and brick kilns. Kept from school, with no choice and no realistic chance of escaping, these children are at risk of serious physical and psychological harm.
But all this can change. The Indian Parliament is considering the legislation "Child and Adolescent Labour Abolition Bill" that prohibits employment of children up to 14 years of age and has the power to protect the futures of millions of children.
For today's Daily Action, watch this video on child slavery in India and ask the Indian Parliament to pass a bill that could be a crucial step towards ending child slavery in India.
