Family Resources

See how your whole family can join the movement to end slavery in our lifetime.

Bring your whole family
into the heroic movement
to end slavery in our lifetime

These resources will help your child begin to understand modern day slavery. We encourage you to watch and read through the stories of Esther, Mallesh, Arul and Pachayamma, below, and think about the questions your child might ask.

As your son or daughter experiences these stories they will learn that nearly one in every four people trapped in slavery is a child — someone who also longs to laugh and play, sing and learn.

It’s probable that your child will want to do something to help end slavery. Please encourage that! Taking action will help your son or daughter understand that children can help make the world a better place.

What is Slavery?

Meet Arul and Pachiayammal

IJM was able to find survivors like Arul and Pachaiyammal who have now not only become survivors, but real-life heroes who have joined us to find those still hidden.

Story Pack

Meet Esther

Esther was forced to work on Lake Volta in Ghana for 10 years of her childhood, until IJM found and rescued her.

Meet Mallesh

Mallesh was enslaved on a rose farm for five years. He picked flowers until his tiny fingers bled. Today he is thriving and free. But no one should be trapped in slavery producing products that we consume every day.

Now you've met some of the children who IJM have worked with, we would love you to write a letter to children just like them to showing them they are seen, valued and loved.
