Your Help

Some people work,
some change the world,
some do both at the same time

For the world to really make a difference in addressing modern slavery, the private sector must become a more active player. Slave-like conditions have been and will always be incompatible with good business. Every corporation has something to offer. We, therefore, encourage all companies and their employees to explore ways of using their unique set of skills, expertise and comparative advantages to play their part. We also invite companies and individual to donate funding to help with this important cause.

My name is Matthew Keeler and I live in Somerset, UK. I heard about the Mekong Club via a USAID program that aims to eradicate slavery in Asia by the year 2030 and have helped them with pro-bono editing of training manuals, video scripts and promotional texts. I believe that modern slavery is the biggest problem facing the world right now. While governments and organisations like the UN must take the lead, the scale and complexity of the issue means that they cannot deal with it alone. The Mekong Club’s approach of helping the business community to identify and address slavery within their supply chains is exactly what is needed to bring about real change. It’s been a privilege to assist Silvia and her team with this effort.

My name is Emma Franck-Gwinnell and I now like in the UK after attending school in Hong Kong. In 2014, I joined an anti-slavery youth group that opened my eyes to the realities of how much is driven by slavery. I have been volunteering with the Mekong Club for almost a year now with updating their website. I think it’s important that I contribute with my skills and passion for human rights wherever I can.

Lots of people don’t know about the extent of modern slavery, or think it’s something very far removed from them. The best way to fight slavery is to influence and work with companies and industries to help them find more sustainable, ethical solutions in their supply chains. Something that anyone can do which has a huge impact is to tell companies that slavery is important, and support businesses that are committed to ensuring human rights throughout every aspect of their business.
