No One Is Free Until All People Are Free
There are over 2,100,000 people enslaved in the brickyards of Pakistan – almost half of them children. It’s time to do something about it.
Modern Day Slavery
In Pakistan, approximately 1,000,000 children are hand-making bricks in devastating conditions to pay off ever-increasing family debts – and they have been since they were 6 years old. The brickyard owners use a system of housing debt and substandard pay to enslave whole families for generations, creating a cycle nearly impossible to escape from.
Whole families have been enslaved for generations due to the vicious cycle of debt and poverty
Brickyard owners charge families more for housing than they pay them in wages, effectively ensuring they never leave the brickyard
Without an education, children have no chance to find opportunity outside the brickyards
How do we Free all People?
Pay off an individual or family’s debt to free them from the brickyards
Inspire and activate hope for the future through education and training
Invest in a brickyard to initiate a more efficient, profitable way of making bricks
"For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."
