30th Anniversary of UN Slavery Fund

Slavery Fund

For 30 years, the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund on Contemporary Forms of Slavery has assisted hundreds of thousands of victims of slavery to access vital rehabilitation services in every region of the world.

ACRATH has been a very grateful recipient of five grants. The funds have enabled ACRATH to assist victim/survivors of human trafficking, forced marriage, forced labour and sexual exploitation in their journey to recovery.

For 30 years survivors of slavery have found safe spaces, healing hands and even life affirming counselling, through programmes funded by the UN Voluntary Fund on Contemporary Slavery and the Fund has supported more than 800 projects meeting their most urgent needs.

To mark its 30th anniversary in 2022, the Fund published a series of 30 profiles. The stories feature people from all corners of the globe who have survived the unthinkable and have managed to rebuild their lives and give back to society. All of them continue to fight for the right to rehabilitation, healing, and humanity for slavery survivors. Click here to view the profiles. (Image: UN Slavery Fund)
