This week we talk to two incredible New Zealand women, Michelle Pratt and Nikki Prendergast, who are tackling the global issue of child labour. Their story and passion to create change and drive awareness is truly inspiring. Read our feature and then ask yourself: would you have paid for those shoes you're wearing if you knew they were made by young children forced to work? There's nothing like firsthand experience to give you true insight into another's world and our editorial assistant, Anna Lee, had her mind well and truly opened when she took part in the TV documentary series Reality Trip now showing on TV3. Read about her experience working in the factories of the developing world.
