FOUNDED BY A SURVIVOR

Nasreen Sheikh, the founder of Empowerment Collective. As a survivor of modern slavery, Nasreen's journey began in small rural village in Rajura, an undocumented village on the India-Nepal border, where she witnessed and experienced the harsh realities of forced marriage, child labor, and extreme poverty. Determined to change her fate, she escaped to Kathmandu, where she became a child laborer in a textile factory. Her life took a turn when she met Leslie John, an American intellectual and writer, who became her mentor, teaching her to read, write, and understand basic human rights.

END MODERN SLAVERY

End Modern Slavery Now, founded by Nasreen Sheikh, is a movement dedicated to ending modern slavery in all its forms. Spearheaded by Sheikh's inspiring leadership as a survivor, this movement emphasizes the crucial role of informed consumer choices and transparent supply chains, while advocating for global policy changes and increased awareness to ensure a future where every individual lives free from exploitation.
