The Issue

There are now more slaves than in any other time in history. Of an estimated 46 million* victims of modern-day slavery, seven out of ten are directly related to the private sector – making the products we buy or harvesting the food we eat, exploited for labour – bonded or forced.

Despite the best efforts by governments and NGOs around the world, the problem is growing exponentially.

Real change is needed and The Mekong Club is this catalyst for change – engaging, inspiring and supporting the private sector to lead in this fight.
