Statement on modern slavery
At Lioncrest Education, we firmly condemn forced labour, human trafficking, and modern slavery in all its forms. We recognize these heinous practices as grave violations of human rights that exploit and degrade individuals, depriving them of their freedom and dignity. We are committed to taking a strong stance against such abuses and working towards their eradication.
Forced labour, human trafficking, and modern slavery represent a profound injustice that affects millions of people around the world, often targeting the most vulnerable populations. These practices are driven by various factors, including economic inequality, social unrest, and organized crime networks. As an educational institution, we understand the importance of raising awareness about these issues and educating our suppliers, staff, and wider community about the gravity of the problem.
Lioncrest Education supports international efforts to combat forced labour, human trafficking, and modern slavery. We endorse the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly Goal 8.7, which aims to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking, and secure the prohibition and elimination of child labour. We believe that achieving these goals requires a multi-faceted approach involving governments, civil society organizations, the private sector, and educational institutions like ours.
Within Lioncrest Education, we are committed to ensuring that our own operations, supply chains, and partnerships are free from any involvement in forced labour, human trafficking, or modern slavery. We actively collaborate with suppliers, contractors, and business partners who share our commitment to ethical practices and uphold human rights standards.
Lioncrest Education supports and encourages partnerships with organizations dedicated to the eradication of forced labour, human trafficking, and modern slavery. By collaborating with NGOs, advocacy groups, and governmental bodies, we seek to amplify our impact and contribute to comprehensive solutions that address the root causes of these human rights violations.
In conclusion, Lioncrest Education is resolute in its commitment to fighting forced labour, human trafficking, and modern slavery. We will continue to work diligently to raise awareness, educate, and advocate for the protection and empowerment of all individuals affected by these egregious practices. Together, we can build a world where every person enjoys freedom, dignity, and the right to live without fear of exploitation.
