Slavery is illegal everywhere, yet ...

40.3 million are enslaved … some less than 4 years old. Get engaged NOW

There are an estimated 46 million, according to Walk Free’s Global Slavery Index. That’s four times more than those taken out of Africa during the 400 years of the Atlantic Slave Trade. Modern slaves, however, are disposable, cheap, and being hidden from plain sight have no human rights. Very young children are now in greater danger than ever before as sex traffickers exploit opportunities arising from natural disasters, deprivation, civil conflict, and mass migration. So let’s Get Engaged.

RAGAS, formerly RACSRAG, working with others globally will change that by

  • Creating awareness: Telling Rotarians and the wider public that millions are held captive for illegal gain – MANY NEAR WHERE YOU LIVE!
  • Taking action: Supporting, working with and promoting global anti-slavery bodies and activities through Rotary Clubs, campaigns and projects that help protect children and adults from slavery and its consequences.

YOU can help make that change
