Thailand Hosts Student Art on Child Labor, Trafficking

Webster's campus in Cha-Am, Thailand is displaying an exhibit raising awareness of child labor and trafficking, part of the senior overview project by senior media communications student Aisha Kallahan. 

Kallahan explained that part of the impetus for her project came when she heard classmates discussing slavery as "a thing of the past." 

"Most don't even associate children with trafficking," she said. "The common answer to who gets trafficked was almost always about sex workers."

What's on display includes three pieces highlighting different aspects of child labor and trafficking and its impact, as well as some statistics to underline the problem.

Read more about each piece in this story at Webster Univeristy Thailand.
