  • TASC co-founders @princesseugenie and @juliadeboinville met on the bus going on a school trip and knew that it was just the beginning of a life-long adventure and friendship! 'In 2012 we went on a trip to Kolkata, India where we visited an organisation called The Women’s Interlink Foundation which was founded by Aloka Mitra. Aloka rescues girls from modern slavery, gives them a home and teaches them a simple vocational skill – fabric printing. During our time in Kolkata we were shocked to discover the extent to which slavery still exists. In fact, there are more enslaved people today than at any other point in history, and at any one time someone is being trafficked within a mile of where you live. We founded TASC to help raise awareness of modern slavery in the modern world.'
  • #TB to when TASC co-founder @princesseugeinie joined a panel discussion with Dominika Kulczyk, Tony Maddox and Nima Elbagir from CNN - it's important to us that we work together to bring an end to modern slavery. @kulczykfoundation #myfreedomday
  • This #InternationalWomensDay we're loving @graceaforrest latest article for Marie Claire discussing the oppression and abuse of power in supply chains linked to some of worlds biggest retailers... It's time to take notice and work together to raise awareness of modern day slavery.
  • It was great to learn more about Kevin Bales, Professor of Contemporary Slavery at the University of Nottingham. Kevin has made it his life's mission to raise awareness of modern slavery as a co-founder of Free the Slaves and through his work on the Global Slavery Index... @princesseugenie
  • We had an eye-opening evening at the @CNNvision event last week where we watched a screening of The CNN Freedom Project’s documentary 'Troubled Waters' which follows the work of PACODEP as it tries to free boys from trafficking and give them an education. Some great work from amazing people!
  • We recently visited the team at The Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority @TheGLAA. The team does great work with partners to protect vulnerable and exploited workers, helping bring an end to human trafficking and forced labour. @princesseugenie
  • Yesterday TASC co-founder @princesseugenie visited @rightslab to see how the team there are using tech to map potential sites of modern slavery - great work!
  • Today, more than a billion people around the world lack that most basic of human rights: recognized personhood. Without proof of their existence, they can become “invisible” and are easy prey for human traffickers, who often use fake ID documents to transport them across borders. In the specific case of fighting human trafficking, the World Identity Network along with their partners are using blockchain on top of existing systems to make sure that no child is taken out of the country using fake ID documents that are produced by human traffickers. @dahanmariana
  • Today our co-founder @princesseugenie met the incredible organisation @stopthetraffik and their CEO Ruth. The team is empowering people to take action against #HumanTrafficking with a 360-degree approach... Their intelligence-led STOP APP is the only one of its kind to combine community empowerment, big data management and anti-trafficking expertise to disrupt this horrific crime. #enditmovement
  • #TBT to our #techtacklestrafficking event, our brilliant panel Caroline Haughey QC and Kevin Bales who were interviewed on their work combatting human trafficking and of course our very own @princesseugenie who moderated on the night. With special thanks to our partners @C5.accelerate, @mccaininstitute and ScottPrenn!
  • Today we’re supporting the #enditmovement❌... join us and show your support by drawing the red X on your hand!
  • A poignant quote from Charles Sumner, a prominent leader in the force against slavery during the 1800’s.
  • Its #HumanTraffickingAwareness month in the US, so we wanted to share this amazing post from @thorn on 4 ways you can be a #ForceForGood to help put an end to trafficking.
  • There’s still a long fight for justice ahead, but by shining a light on the facts we can move forward together...
  • #TBT to when we met the grantees of the @untrustfundevaw in Belgrade Serbia… Amazing women with amazing stories!
  • 'I want to be the last girl in the world with a story like mine' - Nadia Murad, founder of Nadia's Initiative. An organisation dedicated to helping women and children victimized by human trafficking, genocide and mass atrocities rebuild their lives.
  • It’s important to have a unified approach and work with amazing people who share our goals like @graceaforrest to bring an end to Modern Slavery.
  • Transparency is key when it comes to ending modern slavery in the world… thank you @graceaforrest.
  • We recently visited the grantees of the @untrustfundevaw in Belgrade Serbia… here’s what we got up to...
  • You may choose to look away, but you can never again say you did now know” - William Wilberforce died 3 days before parliament passed the Slavery Abolition act of 1833. But that doesn’t mean we cannot carry on building on his great work.
  • Thank you @graceaforrest for these very wise words...
  • Children deserve to be children…
  • This Human Rights Day we want to call out this work from @A21 and @heathrow_airport, shining a light on the impactful #CanYouSeeMe? campaign... The campaign is designed to equip the general public to recognise indicators of human trafficking, and report suspected scenarios. An increase in reports will lead to an increase in victim identification and hopefully a decrease in modern slavery.
  • Here’s a #TB to our co-founder HRH Princess Eugeniee speaking @untrustfundevaw… It’s time to stand up to Modern Slavery and end it!
  • Marriage is a choice not everyone gets to make...
  • Meeting survivors who share their stories is key to raising awareness… #TB to when we visited a @SalvationArmyUK safe house to meet survivors and their families - what amazing work these guys do!
  • Today we celebrate International Abolition of Slavery... But we’ve still got a long way to go. Anti Slavery International defines slavery as the above, it’s still happening and is sometimes hidden in plain sight. Let’s work together to raise awareness and end this!
  • Let’s work together to raise awareness and end modern slavery in the world. #theantislaverycollective #TASC #modernslavery #moderndayslavery #slavery #endslavery #slaveryisnotachoice
  • Our co-founder Julia de Boinville recently attended the official commemoration for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. @unwomen
  • Take a look at the recent TASC visit to the grantees of the @untrustfundevaw in Belgrade Serbia. The fund is dedicated to ending violence against women and girls in all its forms and these guys are doing a great job.
  • Although sometimes not visible, modern slavery is in every corner of our lives and often hidden in plain sight. Here at TASC we aim to raise awareness of this very real issue and want to share our journey with you...
  • We are pleased to announce we will be partnering with @C5.accelerate, @mccaininstitute and ScottPrenn to launch a series dedicated to creating meaningful and measurable change in the fight against human trafficking.
