Our Strategy: Education

MDS Foundation strives to educate people around the world about human trafficking through film, literature, and the arts.

The founders and members of MDS Foundation have a strong background in film, literature, and the arts. They use their skills and experience to educate people about the truth of human trafficking and the realities of human trafficking victims.

"Modern Day Slaves" is a documentary released in 2010 about overseas Filipino workers. These OFWs are underpaid, overworked, and abused. They are modern day slaves. Labor slavery is one of the forms of human trafficking. "Modern Day Slaves" was screened in multiple film festivals, including the Cannes Film Festival in France, and also won multiple awards. It has helped educate the public about the harsh realities of human trafficking.

MDS Foundation was born from the "Modern Day Slaves" documentary. In the same way the documentary has educated many people about labor and modern day slavery, MDS Foundation uses film, literature, and the arts to educate more people about human trafficking.
