Omri and Savita’s Story
In 2007, the United Nations declared March 25 a day of remembrance for victims of the slave trade.
(Fits World history timeline.)
These stories are fictionalized accounts of two children in Asia, a boy named Omri and a girl named Savita, who were made captives by employers who turned the children’s labor into a way to make an easy profit. They are based on conditions reported by various news and advocacy agencies.
PLEASE NOTE: Parents may wish to review these stories before sharing them with their children. They are intended for older children only.
