India: the world's child slave capital ?

Dear friends across India, 

A 13-year-old girl, sold by her uncle and trafficked across the country as a maid, was found locked inside a Delhi apartment while her affluent employers holidayed abroad. It’s time for us to end the shame of child slavery in India. 

This young victim is one of millions of India's children who are sold from poor villages to huge cities, to find themselves enslaved as prostitutes or unpaid domestic servants. The police usually turn a blind eye to breaches of our laws on trafficking and slavery, but together we can push our Home Affairs Minister P. Chidambaram to punish those who profit from the heinous mistreatment of our children. 

Let’s stop ignoring the plight of India's invisible children and call on Minister P. Chidambaram to set up a special task force that will examine how to stop all forms of child trafficking and exploitation, and ensure that the new Anti-Human Trafficking Units get the resources and power they need to act. Sign the petition now and forward widely:
