As a parent. If you are a parent, you could:

  • use various methods, including art exhibitions, essay competitions and the internet, to bring home the damaging consequences of slavery-like practices and the worst forms of child labor.  


As a school student. If you are in high school or secondary school, you could become one of the Society's reps.


As a member of a youth group. If you belong to a youth group, you could use anniversary occasions to focus attention on problems of exploitation through slavery-like practices.


As a member of a church group. If belong to a church group, you could mobilize interested members to campaign against child slavery, the worst forms of child labor and the trafficking in children.


As a labor unionist. If belong to a labor union, you could:

  • mobilize interested members to campaign against the worst forms of child labor;

  • support the work of your union and the AFL-CIO (the TUC in the UK, the ACTU in Australia, etc) in its campaigns against child labor.

As a member of the Society. The Society:

  • rescues children from slavery and bonded labor;

  • makes representations to governments and international organizations;

  • supports other groups fighting slavery and child labor in their own countries;

  • informs the public about slavery and mobilizes support for campaigns.

You can help these children by becoming a member.


Donation. As mentioned, the Society:

  • investigates and exposes slavery, bonded labor and child labor; and

  • rescues children from slavery and bonded labor.

The Society receives no government funding and relies totally on donations raised from members of the public and on the work of unpaid volunteers, and, therefore, any assistance you can give, either by becoming a member, by making a donation, or becoming a volunteer, will assist the Society’s charitable work.

You can help by making a donation.  You can nominate which of the Society's projects in Africa and Asia you would like to fund.


As a volunteer. You can also help by becoming a volunteer (even if you can't afford to become a member or make a donation).


Chapters. If you wish, you could participate in forming local committees or State Chapters or with suggesting possible local organizers.


Concerts. Concerts could be organized to raise funds for to help children in Africa and Asia.


Morning teas.  If your children have grown up and you have sufficient time, you could — as some of our members do — organize morning teas to raise funds for the Society’s work.


THE ENSLAVEMENT OF CHILDREN IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TOO!
You can become a member of the Society and join the struggle towards freedom for children in servitude throughout the world.
