Watch in full: 'Slavery in West Africa'

In parts of Africa, still haunted by the 19th Century trans-Atlantic slave trade, new forms of slavery are thriving. According to the 2013 Global Slavery Index, four of the world's worst 10 countries are in west Africa. In this film, CNN reporters examine why slavery still exists, including among children. They talk to victims, activists and politicians accountable for stamping it out.

This Freedom Project film aired on CNN International TV in January. Now you can see it here in its entirety without commercial breaks.

CNN Correspondent Vlad Duthiers starts in Ghana, where many of the trans-Atlantic slaves were captured and where slavery now has its roots in different forms. The film also includes reports from Ivory Coast, The Gambia and Mauritania, the last country in the world to make slavery illegal, but where many people remain in servitude.

      Are you serious? you probably have lost the heart in the midst of animal kingdom. i will pray for both punishment and your rebirth as a butterfly. if you make people around you happier, your own life will be worth living.

    If we believe that the children are the future leaders then we need to give the children good education and prepare a better future for then. We need to stop the slavery now. The farmers need better life for they and their children.
