Free A Village

Artists for Human Rights (AFHR) has partnered with Voices4Freedom to free an enslaved village in India from generational slavery.

Schools4Freedom brings entire villages to freedom by educating children and teaching everyone about their rights. At our schools in northern India, children are taught the 3 Rs and everyone learns how to use the legal system to fight their slave owners and free themselves forever. Watch the video below to learn more.

 

Latest News - July 2019

We are so pleased to share the latest news from our village in India that we have supported and funded, is steadily making it's way to a life of freedom.

Six more people left slavery situations which makes a total of 92 people who have come to freedom! Let that sink in.

The 39 children enrolled in Schools4Freedom are not just learning the basic education curriculum, but their rights, helpline numbers, the dangers of child marriage, warning signs of trafficking and so much more. Most have transitioned to local government school for the first time, but also attend S4F because they prefer that learning environment.

We're on the home stretch now and the entire village already has everything in place to live a life of freedom.

We're so proud to be a part of the Voices4Freedom family who work tirelessly to bring entire villages in India out of generational slavery and heart wrenching conditions! We are glad we're getting to share this village’s journey with you and our on going commitment to implementing human rights no matter what the obstacles.

 

AFHR Travels to India to Free A Village

In April, 2017 AFHR Founder Anne Archer and President Donna Isham traveled with Voices4Freedom outside of India’s holiest city, Varanasi, to see the village that AFHR is in the process of bringing to freedom. The 3 year program begins by opening a school for the enslaved village children. As the children learn to read and write, they and their parents are educated about their human rights. Simple. Miraculous. As these enslaved children and parents learn their rights while the children learn to read and write, the parents begin to understand and come together for maybe the first time as a self-determined community based on self-respect and shared human values. With knowledge comes power. They stand up for their legal rights, and the enslavers, like school-yard bullies, begin to back away looking over their shoulders for who else has found them out. Generations of slavery meets freedom forever.
