    I think the modern-day slavery should not actually exist as every human being has right to freedom. Somehow, there are countries which are called developing countries but in fact they are actually poor countries which cannot fulfill the basic needs of its people. I am from Nepal and its hard for me to see these things but I can feel what they have to go through everyday and struggle everyday to make their life better and beable to afford a meal in a day. I am glad that there are projects that can support children who are deprived and struggling just to survive.

    They are Nepalis and look like Nepalis. Let's not be in a self denial mode. I am from India. I agree with Joanne. Many developing countries have to ficus on kids education and eradicate poverty. Unless this is done the country cannot become a developed country. I wish all the people all this mother earth have freedom and basic necessities.

    This is something that exists and should be eradicated. There are plenty of people (Nepali as well as foreigners) and plenty of money invested in I/NGOs claiming to work in these fronts. Most of that amount goes for salary and allowances of their employees. (I had read somewhere are almost 40 percent of donor's money in certain INGOs go back to the donor country in the name of salary and allowances of top executives!!!!)

    To everyone who do not know...Nepal is celebrating year 2011 as Nepal Tourism Year. All Nepalis look forward to seeing you in Nepal this year...please visit the website of Nepal Tourism Board for more!!!!

    There is exploitation of poor by the riches. Riches and slefish corporates promotes child labour. Its easy to say no child labour, but due to ambitious profit making plan of corporate, they doesn't hesitate to take advantage of poverty and add money into the pocket of riches. Poor need money ...for their living, growing up their children and providing them better education and making them self sustainable. We need to take strong action against the corporates who get the service without providing adequate compensation and health care. Its also not only about child labor but the working condition itself is not hygienic. Poor just paid a penny at a cost of their health. I m from Nepal and I have witnessed it.
