Slavery is vast and brutal

Slavery is a violent crime affecting millions of the world’s poor.

Annually, slavery generates more than

$190 billion*

That's more profit than Apple, Exxon, Chevron, Microsoft, Google and Facebook combined.

45 million*

people are in slavery and forced labour in 2016

That's twice the size of the Australian population.

Slavery is not a relic of history.

It's a larger reality now than ever before.
*Statistics from ILO 2014 and Global Slavery Index 2016

In IJM’s cases, we have met slaves who report being beaten, gang raped, locked in tiny rooms, starved and who have even witnessed murder. We want you to understand what modern-day slavery is.

We want you to help us stop it.

Slavery is stoppable

Slavery is illegal almost everywhere. So why does it still exist?

Millions of the world’s poor are trapped in slavery, because there is no one there to protect them. In many places the laws against slavery are not being enforced so slave owners and traffickers can prey on the poor without any consequences.

What happens when the laws are enforced?

Traffickers prey upon the world's poor. They use their money, their influence and their access to power to exploit and abuse those who have no defender.

Deploy your money, your influence, your prayers to stop them.
