A21 #WalkForFreedom PH

By Wanderlust By Enn - 1:15:00 AM

Last Saturday, October 15, 2016 was the first ever A21 #WalkForFreedom in the Philippines. An annual walk happening for about 3 years now. "A21 exists to abolish human trafficking in the 21st century through a comprehensive system of preventative measures, victim protection, prosecution of violators, and strategic partnerships." 

Human trafficking is a serious problem that is neglected. And we wanted that through every step on this walk Modern Day Slavery will be ABOLISHED. This is not just a simple walk because every step equals FREEDOM for all the victims going to be survivors from 270 walks in 39 countries. 

Can you imagine children locked up and not knowing who they are or their identity anymore? I grew up as a child who experienced playing near the shore with my cousins and my friends. I enjoyed my childhood being a 90's baby but can you imagine those young children whose freedom has been gone? But its not too late for them. 

A21 shelters? Yes they do have shelters for all the survivors of the human trafficking. 

11 pm of October 14 we were already at High Street, BGC, Taguig to set up all the tents for the booth for that day. I have Leo with me who also volunteered for the said event.  It feels good that you're going to be part of something that CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. That no matter how sleepless you were, you still have the energy for the day because you know in your heart that you're helping someone even if you don't know him/her. 

As I've said we set up tents for the booths. The booth are as follows:

#WelcomeFreedom is where we can register and check-in.
#WearFreedom is where we bought our #WalkForFreedom merchandise like t-shirts and caps. 
If you want to have further ideas and know more about the A21 there is a #KnowFreedom booth for all of us. 
For the donation there is also a #SupportFreedombooth.
and #WriteToFreedom booth which we wrote letters for all the survivors on the A21 shelters. 

Don't worry, the A21 is an annual walk. If you missed being a part of the event there will always be a next time and we hope to see you there with you friends and family.

Hands up to all the people I experienced the event with. Especially to my Achi Cielo because of her I became a part of a something.
