#MyFreedomDay 2019: Students teach the world about modern slavery


CNN’s Isa Soares took part in a “power shuffle” with pupils at Yeading School, London, sharing case studies of human trafficking survivors.

A Chinese man transported in a shipping container and too scared to seek medical help. A 13-year-old girl forced to marry a man twice her age and work 70 hours a week.

“Now I’m thinking about people in different countries who have to work all day long without earning money or anything,” reflected one student.

Last week, pupils from Yeading School joined thousands of children at We Day UK, an event organized by WE charity, to empower students to create social change.
