Soeurs de Saint-Joseph de Cluny
          Slavery of our time

Slavery of our time

During the 2012 General Chapter, the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Cluny took the following position on Modern Day Slavery :

The promotion of the dignity of each person

Slavery is at work when the integrity and dignity of the human person are held captive through :

  • human trafficking (sale of human organs, prostitution (commercial sex workers),
  • alcoholism, drug abuse,
  • child abuse,
  • violence against women and children.

The liberating charism of Blessed Anne-Marie Javouhey urges the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Cluny to reach out to these dehumanizing situations, thus :

The Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Cluny commits itself to fight against slavery in our world promoting the dignity of each person. (2012 General Chapter Orientations)

A Cluny Response :

Bal Suraksha Abhiyan (BSA) is an institution for rehabilitation of working children - one of the pilot projects undertaken by the Province of North East India / Nepal in 2006. Since then, the Province is making great strides in fulfilling its mission.
