Day 231

Because their parents were trapped in slavery in a brick kiln, Shiva and Madesh weren’t able to go to school. Instead, they had to work. Pranitha Timothy, IJM’s Director of Aftercare in Chennai, said this:

This is slavery. It is more than just work for little or no pay. It steals a family’s freedom and dignity. It denies children an education. It strips parents of their roles as protector and provider.
