Summary

Modern forms of slavery are used in Guatemala, towards young women, indigenous and internal migrants, that are victims of labour trafficking, converting them in slaves, given the necessity of having an income they are subjects to violations. We look to generate social and government dialogue that protects young working women in tortillerias, domestic work and rural areas. Generating awareness campaigns to eradicate modern slave labour.
