All People Free works toward freedom for all people held under systemic oppression in Pakistan
All People Free is our saying YES to the call to liberate people through education and empowerment as well as to solve the systemic problem by finding productive solutions for the Brickyard owners. With strong relationships already in place in the education, business, media, religious and political sectors of Pakistan, there is a great opportunity for substantial change to occur in the coming years – the time is ripe and movement has begun. Pakistan is the key to seeing an industry-wide change in the neighboring countries who share the problem.
Our friends, Dr. Harold & Linda Eberle, have been first-hand witnesses to the suffering of the Pakistani people who are enslaved in the brickyards. With their hands full with the important work they are part of, they felt a passion to find someone to spearhead a movement to end the problem of indentured servitude that keeps 2.1million people (mostly children) enslaved under heavy hands in impossible conditions. In April 2018, they asked us to spearhead that movement. We believe global emancipation is inevitable! All People Free.
