Domestic Working Becomes Everyday More like Slavery

In the world today many young children leave their communities to escape something or pursue false promises in domestic work. For example Asma - she left when she was 13 to go to a job that paid her 25,000 rupia a month but she was never paid any of it and worked from 13-15 hours a day. Her "employer" physically and verbally abused her and kept her as a slave. How can we help young people become more aware of these situations so they do not have to suffer what Asma did? Why have so many been caught in these situations?
