Nainika's Manchapravesh Fundraiser
Child slavery is a form of modern-day slavery in which children are forced to work against their will in hazardous conditions, often for little or no pay. Child slavery is a serious violation of human rights and affects millions of children around the world. Children who are forced into slavery are denied their right to a childhood and an education. They are often subjected to physical and emotional abuse, working long hours in dangerous conditions that can lead to injury and illness. Many child slaves are also trafficked, kidnapped, or sold into slavery by their own families, or forced to work in industries such as agriculture, mining, and manufacturing. It is essential to address the root causes of child slavery, including poverty and lack of access to education and healthcare, and to enforce laws that protect children from exploitation and abuse.
I am really impressed with the work Breaking the Chain Through Education, a non-profit organization, has been doing to help eradicate child slavery in Ghana, Africa. I and my friends have been personally involved in some of the fund raisers for this organization through our dance academy, Metuchen Dance Center. You can learn more about this amazing organization at www.btcte.org.
For my Manchapravesh, I request you to consider supporting Breaking the Chain Through Education in this noble endeavor and help it support the victims of child trafficking in Ghana through education, housing, clothing and other basic necessities of life to make these children self-reliant in future.
Thank you very much,
