International Day for the Abolition of Slavery – Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd.

I believe this Government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. – June 1858, Abraham Lincoln

There are approximately 21 million people in this world who are trapped in slavery it includes men, women and children. It has been more than 200 hundred years since slavery was banned in countries in Europe but it was Ashoka the great who in 3rd Century BC abolished slavery in India. However, in modern time, Spain enacted the first European law abolishing colonial slavery in 1542 and became the first country to abolish slavery.

Years have gone by and slavery has evolved in different ways. While few traditional ways have still been there throughout these years, there have been some new ones that have come up. Nowadays, the focus have been laid on the contemporary forms of slavery like human trafficking, child labour, sexual exploitation, forced marriage and forced recruitment of children for armed conflicts.

Some of the forms of slavery that prevails in this world are usually related to most vulnerable group in our societies. There has been a long-standing discrimination against the most vulnerable groups in societies. Most of them are from the low caste groups, tribal minorities and indigenous people of any country. Other forms of exploitation include bonded labourers, child labourers, migrant workers, people who work in domestic servitude, forced prostitution etc.

On December 2nd, 1949, the General Assembly of the United Nations approved the convention for suppression of the traffic in persons and of the exploitation of the prostitution of others. The International Day for the Abolition of Slavery became an annual event since December 2nd 1986. This is day observed as an opportunity for people to share their views on the negative impacts of slavery that the modern era has gone through. Governments are urged upon to work towards eradication of slavery. Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd. believes that without the help of the local people slavery cannot be eradicated completely. Therefore, Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd. develops a robust mechanism that involves local communities and other stakeholders to implement any project countering slavery and empowering marginalized groups.

    A Human Rights Watch report on ‘Bonded Child Labor in India’s Silk Industry’ released in 2003 shocked the entire nation. The revelation of the hidden mystery behind the dingy shacks questioned the Government of India law which prohibits the employment of children below the age of 14 years in hazardous occupations under The Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act of 1986. The Act has been revised and redrafted twice in the year 2006 and 2008, but the current statistics of Bonded Child Labour In India reveals a bleak picture wherein India is sadly the home to the largest number of child labourers in the world.

    To treat domestic workers and labours as slaves has been quite common in India. Proper awareness and capacity building of these people can help to abolish this bad treatment of such persons.

    Children in the United States may complain about school,technology and homework, in India, it’s a bit different. Too many Indian children wake up in morning and immediately begin several hours of back-breaking labor. They work seven days a week under terrible conditions and are not able to attend school. Education is one of the most widely valued attributes of human culture, but ironically it is increasingly taken for granted in our country.
