Hear My True Story
How and why the cartel of modern slavery is growing in Uganda, East Africa!
Show Notes

In this episode, we continue our conversation with a Ugandan human rights activist. She shares her personal story in the fight against modern slavery, in which most Ugandan girls are enslaved in the Middle East and Gulf regions. She helps to bring victims of modern slavery back to Uganda and has so far rescued dozens of girls from the hell of modern slavery in the Middle East and the Gulf region.

Through her organization Over Seas Workers, she focuses on bringing enslaved young women from the Middle East back to Uganda, where they end up as victims of modern slavery in the hands of the growing cartel of modern slavery that plays out in the background of government efforts to export labor to the Middle East. However, most of these labor export companies are owned by corrupt, powerful government officials who are directly involved in the sale of young girls and women to the Middle East through the labor export agencies.
