My name is Matthew Keeler and I am a freelance editor. 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.
