ROOFTOP MARKET at The PAWN - 20% of all proceeds will support Liberty Asia!
 
Press Room Group has chosen Liberty Asia as their charity partner for the 2nd edition of PRG's popular ROOFTOP MARKET at The Pawn on Sunday April, 13th, 2014 from 11am - 5pm. Join the fight for freedom by purchasing local boutique goods while enjoying great food & drinks as 20% of all proceeds will support Liberty Asia's anti-slavery work in HK and the region!  For more details, click here.

Liberty Asia has been chosen as one of three organisations worldwide to be supported by a  Global Impact Award from Google to form the Global Human Trafficking Hotline Network. This new alliance of counter trafficking organisations will develop a more coordinated global response for victims of trafficking and slavery. 

The alliance will also focus on providing improved and in-depth data on human trafficking trends to facilitate more targeted prevention and victim protection strategies to fight this global issue.

Schools worldwide can now incorporate information about modern slavery into their courses by viewing or downloading the online curriculum. An interactive, eye-opening journey that exposes the reality of this global issue, the 5-module curriculum will provide teachers with the tools to empower students to be inspiring advocates against slavery in their schools and communities today.

Established in 2011, Liberty Asia is made up of a group of dedicated professionals from different industries who feel strongly that a more effective, coordinated response to slavery is essential and that leveraging technology available to the corporate sector and providing it to the NGO sector will facilitate this response. 

Liberty Asia’s goal is to provide new solutions to change the way slavery and trafficking is addressed. Where possible, we will work with existing organisations to avoid duplication and to ensure resources are used efficiently.  

Liberty Asia is a Hong Kong registered charitable organisation.

There are approximately 21 million slaves in the world today, more than at any other time in human history. To put these numbers into a historical perspective, between 1450 and 1900, a total of 11.3 million slaves were abducted from Africa to other parts of the world.

This was over a period of 450 years. 

Slavery is a thriving international crime, with annual profits exceeding US$32 billion globally. Yet annual donations to organisations that fight slavery are only around US$350 million - less than one per cent of the profit generated. It is not surprising that the numbers of people being forced into slavery continues to increase
