They are loving their new life of freedom. Visit freeslaves.org and check out other families that are waiting for this to become their reality too. Give to love and love to give! ... See MoreSee Less
30 years enslaved - a life sentence for doing no wrong.
William (senior) took a loan from the brick kiln 30 years ago to pay for his wife's medical treatment. They had a son together while in slavery but she subsequently died. William's son has never lived outside the brick kilns or known what freedom is. Imagine that? We are halfway there to setting these two free - $800 remains on their debt. Can you help?

Freeslaves.org is run by Acacia Projects, a registered NZ based charity (CC54139). We work in Pakistan to redeem families from slavery and establish them in work. We also run five schools for slave and very poor children, and support a number of refugee families who have been forced to flee due to violence and persecution.

Turning dreams into reality - the smiles say it all!
On the first day of Spring, the season of new life, Freeslaves was able to set eight families free from bonded labour slavery in the brick kilns of Pakistan. Thanks to our US and NZ donors, that's a total of 37 people who are now able to begin a new life of hope and freedom.

Outram students lead the way to freedom!
A few weeks ago, we posted about two Outram school students who sold baking and slime to raise $150 towards setting a family free. In true Kiwi style, other donors got in behind and by the end of the weekend, we had enough money to free the Allah Wasaya family! They had been in bonded labour slavery for the past two years but are now able to begin a new life and dream of a new future.
Thanks girls for leading the way and changing the world! ... See MoreSee Less

FROM MAKING BRICKS TO MAKING SCHOLARS!
At the beginning of this year, Mr Sadiq and his family were trapped in bonded labour slavery after taking a loan to pay off a business debt 2 years ago. Thanks to a US donor, this family were set free in January and Freeslaves was able to employ Mr Sadiq as a teacher in a freeslaves-sponsored school in Chattain Wala (15 students) and in Katloil (25 students). He's doing a great job! ... See MoreSee Less
