Australia’s first Modern Slavery Bill is passed


An historic day as Australia’s first Modern Slavery Bill is passed.

Modern Slavery Bill 2018

Orphanage trafficking and exploitation in orphanages is captured in the Act’s definition of modern slavery.

Orphanage tourism has now been recognised as a modern slavery risk!

Thank you Senator Linda Reynolds for your tireless advocacy.

Congratulations to our team at ReThink Orphanages Australia in this monumental win.

As momentum builds to rethink orphanages, we hope other countries will follow suit.
