There are currently 50 million people in modern slavery and 160 million children in child labour. Target 8.7 of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals calls for us to work together to end these unacceptable violations of human rights. The goal of the Alliance is to catalyze action on Target 8.7. We focus on scaling up solutions that work, driving innovation, and leveraging and maximizing the impact of resources. But like any Alliance, we are only as strong as our partners.
