This iReport is part of an assignment:
Take a stand to end slavery
Yeong Gwang Girls High School Takes a Stand
- 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.
