James Aguer Alic has struggled for decades to free children suffering in slavery in South Sudan and neighbouring Sudan.

The enslaved children have been kidnapped from their homes and villages, often by armed militia. The children who are freed and rehabilitated by James have been forced to work from sunrise to sunset, and sleep outdoors with the animals, eating leftovers, and are beaten and whipped. James received the World's Children's Prize in 2003 for his brave fight against child slavery.
