1. A consortium of NGOs attempt to prevent the human trafficking of women and girls into domestic servitude and the garment industry in South Asia through the innovative use of technology. Using websites, tablets, smart phones and other technologies has great potential, but how will it help the most trafficked people in the world - India's Dalits (Untouchables)?
    This video uses real stories from Dalits, and the insight of Indian activists, as they look at the implications for India's Dalits. Filmed by DFN UK's Indian partners to inform an international review conference following the project's pilot stage. Find out more about the trafficking and slavery of Dalits in India: dfn.org.uk

  2. When a girl is given a necklace of red and white beads in India they have little if any idea of the significance. Up to a quarter of a million Dalit women and girls are dedicated to the goddess when they are young children. When they reach puberty they are forced into ritual slavery. This is their story. This is their reality.

  3. Around the world today, 27 million people are in modern slavery. Over half are in India. This video launched the campaign of Dalit Freedom Network UK to bring an end to the human trafficking and slavery of India's Dalits - Untouchables. It would be easy to be overwhelmed by the scope and scale of the problem, but this short film gives tangible and realistic ways in which ordinary people can make a real difference.

    Narrator: Anjali Guptara Khera. Filmed on location by S Samuels. Edited and produced in the UK by Rising Brook Media. Music by Andrew Swarbrick.

  4. India's Dalits - Untouchables - are among the poorest, most oppressed and marginalised people in the world. The request by Dalit leaders to educate their children was very understandable. What we did not realise was how key our schools would be in the fight against human trafficking and slavery.
