Stolen Dreams is a UK-based anti-slavery organisation, working with schools and governments internationally to help drive action around ending contemporary forms of exploitation (modern slavery). Our work involves educational outreach projects, developing prevention strategies on a local level, taking part in high-level policy discussions/negotiations at the United Nations and Youth 7 (G7) Forums as Youth Delegates, holding governments and businesses to account. Our work has influenced people and policy across the world, transforming awareness into tangible actions, mobilising individuals in the fight against this issue. Recognising the intersections, we also work to combat poverty, climate change, lack of access to education and gender inequality. Join Stolen Dreams in taking action to ensure that every human being has access to basic human rights.
