About This Lesson

Bonded labor is a form of modern-day slavery, where ordinary people lose the most basic freedom of movement, the freedom of choice. They are forced to work long hours with little rest. Over five million children are born into such slavery. Their parents or grandparents may have borrowed a petty sum from a local landlord and consequently generations and generations have to work for the same master. Check out this resource to learn how Kailash Satyarthi is fighting to end child labor in South Asia. Read the INTERVIEW WITH KERRY KENNEDY.
