      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.
