Forced labor is a form of involuntary servitude, a situation in which an individual is physically or mentally forced to perform a job that does not meet their needs or desires.
According to the International Labor Organization, forced labor accounts for about 4.7 percent of all jobs worldwide, with about 70 million people being subjected to this form of labor each year.
The United Nations estimates that in 2016 alone, some 20 million people were forced to work for little or no pay.
While the number of victims of forced labor is often underestimated, there are currently a number of organizations working to help those in need.
For instance, an organization called the International Fund for Agricultural Development, or FIDAI, works to address the economic, social, and human rights of people in agriculture.
FIDIA’s work is focused on addressing the causes and effects of forced labour.
The organization’s research and advocacy focuses on labor conditions, including the effect forced labor has on people, the economic impact it has on communities, and the health impacts that result from the conditions of forced employment.
In a 2016 report, FIDI reported that, in 2016, forced employment in rural areas had risen by 2.5 million people, which represents an increase of almost 7 percent from 2015.
Forced labor also disproportionately affects women.
According the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, women comprise more than 40 percent of those in forced labor in developing countries.
Forced marriage, forced sex trafficking, and other forms of sexual exploitation can be devastating to women.
FEDAI has worked with the U and FIDIE to develop a range of measures to help address the causes of forced prostitution, forced child labor, and forced domestic servitude.
In 2018, FEDI’s new program, FWD-U, launched a campaign to educate women about the needs of people who are forced to have sexual relations, and to work with them to make sure that they have access to healthcare and education.
FWD and FWDIE work to empower women and girls to speak out and demand the protection of the laws that protect them, regardless of their gender, to ensure that there is no impunity for those who violate human rights.
Fwd and Fwdie are committed to ensuring that those who seek out and exploit people, exploit vulnerable groups, and abuse them are held accountable for their actions.
In 2017, Fwd-U released its latest report, “Criminalizing Forced Labor and Sexual Exploitation in South Asia.”
The report outlines the global trends and trends that lead to the exploitation of vulnerable populations, the harms they suffer, and how these harms can be mitigated through laws and policies that protect victims and protect their communities.
Feddie provides education and training to women and youth, who are at risk of becoming victims of sexual violence.
Fidie’s global advocacy and training efforts also include work to increase awareness among women and communities about forced labor and sex trafficking.
Fiedo is a registered charity working to end forced and bonded labor in Africa, South America, and Central and South America.
The charity, which was founded in 2003, has worked for the benefit of more than 60,000 people who have been forced to be bonded labor or bonded labor victims.
It supports communities in these regions, which are the most vulnerable in terms of the human rights abuses that can be perpetrated by these employers.
Fdedo also works with local NGOs to increase accountability for forced labor, particularly in rural communities.
Since 2013, Fdedi has partnered with the UNICEF and the United Nations Human Rights Office to create a National Framework for the Elimination of Forced and Bonded Labor in Africa.
The framework was created by the United Nation’s Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), the United States Department of State’s Trafficking in Persons Office, and South Africa’s Department for Peace and Justice.
This framework provides a global framework for combating forced and unauthorised labour.
