'n Hart vol sand

by Anzil Kulsen

Jenna het geen idee waar die Kalahari-dorpie sy naam vandaan kry nie, want die woord “kepeke” beteken glo “baie”. En hier is nie baie van enige iets nie. Behalwe sand. En klipperige grondpaaie. Hoe op aarde kon haar pa haar dwing om hierheen te trek? Selfs die ouens is vreemd. Maar kort voor lank kom Jenna agter dat daar baie meer in Kepeke se stil stofstrate aangaan as wat sy aanvanklik vermoed het.

His eye upon us

by Cynderella Helen Handwatch

Sasha, a young college graduate, is unable to find a job in a predominantly white corporate market. She coerces her mother into letting her go to Johannesburg to seek employment. In her new job she proves herself a fast learner, intelligent and ambitious. Promotion however evades her, and family financial setbacks force her to look for alternative solutions. She answers an advert for a waitressing position, a set-up through which she is lured into the trafficking industry. Things start spiralling out of control when she is tricked into attending a photographic modelling shoot and finds herself being shipped out of the country. (Book is based on a true life experience)

Motivated by the Human Trafficking pandemic, in this book Cindy has endorsed the prompting of the Holy Spirit to guide her into capturing some of her experiences in the fight against all forms of Abuse and Trafficking. Inspired by the knowledge and the revelation of the word, she has skillfully applied this insight and has succeeded in bringing the characters to life on print. Her primary aspiration is the reader is encouraged and finds comfort between the pages in knowing, whatever the need, aid, support and care is available.

Part six of the book includes some answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

The world around us 21st Century Slavery

Die wereld om ons 21ste Eeuse Mensehandel

by Joan Groenewald

The book covers diverse slavery topics and deals with the knowledge about 21st century slavery. This human trafficking occurs in normal, ordinary families like yours and mine. There are perceptions and assumptions that most people who are traded are poor and unemployed, but there are also stories of well-qualified people – like the social worker – who was almost caught in the trap of human trafficking. There is no difference in colour, gender or age. So, by reading this book you are vicariously familiarised with the lives of, amongst others, Elrie, Beauty, Nanna and Amy. They were all totally vulnerable and had similar experiences that changed their lives significantly.” 

Die boek is divers en gaan oor die deling van kennis ten opsigte van die 21ste eeuse mensehandel. Hierdie mensehandel kom voor in normale en doodgewone gesinne soos ek en jy. Daar is waarnemings en aannames dat die meeste mense arm en werkloos is, maar daar is ook verhale van goed gekwalifiseerde persone, soos van ʼn maatskaplike werker, wat amper in die strik van mensehandel vasgepen is. Daar is geen onderskeid in kleur of ouderdom nie. Dus word u blootgestel aan die lewens van o.a. Elrie, Beauty, Nanna en Amy wat baie kwesbaar was. Hulle het soortgelyke ervarings gehad wat hul lewens ingrypend verander het.

In Order to Live

by Yeonmi Park

A North Korean girl's journey to freedom

'I am most grateful for two things: that I was born in North Korea, and that I escaped from North Korea.' Yeonmi Park was not dreaming of freedom when she escaped from North Korea. She didn't even know what it meant to be free. All she knew was that she was running for her life, that if she and her family stayed behind they would die - from starvation, or disease, or even execution. This book is the story of Park's struggle to survive in the darkest, most repressive country on earth; her harrowing escape through China's underworld of smugglers and human traffickers; and then her escape from China across the Gobi desert to Mongolia, with only the stars to guide her way, and from there to South Korea and at last to freedom; and finally her emergence as a leading human rights activist - all before her 21st birthday.

Unthinkable

by Kris Hollington 

To order the book click HERE

The UK was shocked to its core in May 2012 when a gang of nine men was convicted of the systematic sexual abuse of disadvantaged teenage girls in the Rochdale area - the crimes including counts of rape, aiding and abetting rape, sexual assault and trafficking girls within the UK for sexual exploitation. Yet many childcare experts reckon these crimes are just the tip of an iceberg of wide scale exploitation occurring across the country.  Award-winning journalist Kris Hollington tells the inside story of some of the most shocking and heartbreaking crimes of recent years, focusing on the Rochdale case but also analysing recent cases in the London area that have echoes of the brutality of organised slavery. His findings expose how the British justice system is failing to protect children in the 21st century. It is a scandal that cannot be ignored.

A gripping story of a child’s journey through hell and back.

In A LONG WAY GONE, Beah, now twenty-six years old, tells a riveting story. At the age of twelve, he fled attacking rebels and wandered a land rendered unrecognizable by violence. By thirteen, he’d been picked up by the government army, and Beah, at heart a gentle boy, found that he was capable of truly terrible acts. Eventually released by the army and sent to a UNICEF rehabilitation center, he struggled to regain his humanity and to reenter the world of civilians, who viewed him with fear and suspicion. This is, at last, a story of redemption and hope.

A Crime So Monstrous

by E Benjamin Skinner 

To order the book click HERE

Two hundred years after Parliament passed the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act, over 27 million people worldwide languish in slavery, forced to work, under threat of violence, for no pay. In Africa, hundreds of thousands are considered chattel, while on the Indian subcontinent millions languish in generational debt bondage. Across the globe, women and children, sold for sex and labour, are already the second most lucrative commodity for organised crime.

The personal stories related here are heartbreaking but in the midst of tragedy Skinner also discovered a quiet dignity that leads some to resist and aspire to freedom. He bears witness for them and for the millions that are held in the shadows - all victims of what is the greatest human-rights challenge facing our generation.
