    Take a stand to end slavery

    Yeong Gwang Girls High School Takes a Stand

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     car0lina says when she discussed the problem of modern-day slavery with her students, 'most of the students believed that human trafficking happened only in poor, developing nations. They seemed shocked to hear that it happens even in the U.S. (where I'm from). I told them that we could make a video for the Freedom Project and they thought it was a fantastic idea.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    I'm an English conversation teacher in Gunsan, South Korea.  After discussing CNN's Freedom Project with some of my students, both they and the school wanted to get involved.  I felt it was a particularly relevent issue for these students, since they are all young women, and so many of the victims of modern-day slavery are women and children.  Yeong Gwang is known for encouraging it's students to be active as volunteers and for giving back to the community.

     

    The school had the banner made for our video and ALL of the school's students participated.
