On this edition of The Paths Forward, we’re going to speak to team members at The Freedom Fund. Their mission is to mobilise the knowledge, capital and will needed to end slavery. We’ll begin with their CEO, Nick Grono, and then hear from other members of the staff.
Modern slavery is a hidden crime with over 40 million people around the world finding themselves in this horrific situation. Given that it is prohibited under international law in almost every country, why is it so widespread and pervasive? And what is being done to address it? For the answers to those questions, it’s a pleasure to have with us, Nick Grono, the chief executive officer of the Freedom Fund.
