There are more than 30 million slaves in the our world today. More than at the height of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.

More than 50% are children.

Child Trafficking is said to be the third most profitable industry world wide, after drugs and weapons.

More than 14,000 girls from Nepal are sold illegally to India for the sex trade every year.

There is up to 8,000 children living on the streets of Kathmandu.

There are approx. 150 million children aged 5-14 in developing countries
and about 16 per cent of all children
in this age group, are involved in child labour.

The Big Umbrella is an NGO based in Australia. The Big Umbrella works with and funds international and local partners to address issues impacting on marginalized youth and children including those affected by human rights abuses, human trafficking, exploitation, forced labour and homelessness.

Our Main Focus: The main focus of The Big Umbrella (TBU) is on anti-slavery and rehabilitation programs in Nepal. We support vulnerable Nepalese children who have been exposed to the dehumanizing impact of child exploitation that is child trafficking and forced slave labour.

Collaborations: The BigUmbrella is proud to hold strong partnerships with Child STS and the Father Bob Maguire Foundation. We place great value on our partnerships as we believe together we are all stronger together.

100% love driven: The Big Umbrella projects are achieved on very modest budgets and are driven by passionate individuals who are all volunteers, there are minimal administration costs and all monies raised go directly into ongoing initiatives.
