Global Institute Against Slavery & Genocide Inc.
We are a non-profit organization focused on the research and prevention of genocide and slave trade.
Slavery is a very old concept institutionalized globally with diverse origins, forms, and ramifications. It is therefore subject to different perceptions and definitions in different societies. It is a fact that many thousands of men, women and children throughout the world remain victims of modern-day slavery.
It asserts that armed conflict, state-sponsored forced labour, and forced marriages were the main causes behind the estimated 9.2 million Africans who are forced to live in servitude. Slavery and genocide have deprived Africa of her potentials in realizing her political and economic growth and stability.
The long history of slavery and genocide in African continent and other parts of the world has created acceptable norms that Africans and other minorities in the world are objects, and slavery is for Africans to the extent that the menace still being practiced even in the present days.
Just to mention but a few, in recent years, serfdom in the continent has attracted global attention when the media houses showed “slave markets” in Libya auctioning off in car parks, garages, and as well as public squares, not forgetting the African women from Kenya and other parts of Africa who were lured to Middle East with the prospect of finding jobs. Instead they were captives of underground agencies of modern-day slavery. These grimy incidents showed a paradigm shift in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights to which these countries are member states.
Therefore, the core objectives of Global Institute Against Slavery & Genocide (GIASAG) Inc is to advocate for eradication of slavery and prevention of genocide in Africa and other parts of the world.
We have adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) as our organizational constitution with specific focus or Articles 3 & 4, as our mission and vision. We call upon the United States Government, United Nations, European Union, African Union and the entire global community to support GIASAG Inc. to realize its mission and vision.
It is our moral obligation as citizens of the world to stand against all human rights violations as stipulated in UDHR.
