Responding to modern slavery in Asia
20 Aug 2017
In late 2014, the Macquarie Group Foundation embarked on a long-term, regional project in Asia around preventing and responding to modern slavery, specifically on issues affecting migrant domestic workers. This has resulted in the release of a regional research report, Modern Slavery in East Asia: Protecting the rights and promoting the autonomy of domestic migrant workers from Indonesia and the Philippines (http://modernslavery.seefar.org/) and subsequent strategic grants based on the report’s recommendations.
Macquarie staff across Asia are also raising funds, volunteering with, and participating in education sessions with non-profit partner organisations working in this sector.
