MUMBAI: CNN’s #MyFreedomDay – a student-driven social media event to raise awareness of modern-day slavery – returns on March 14.

Driving this year’s #MyFreedomDay is one simple question: ‘What makes you feel free?’ CNN is asking young people to share their responses via text, photo or video across social media using the #MyFreedomDay hashtag.

Last year’s call to action saw students from more than 100 countries take part, and the #MyFreedomDay hashtag was used far and wide with 1.4 billion global Twitter impressions and 20 million Instagram timelines reached.

This year looks to be even bigger with CNN correspondents reporting from schools all over the world including Poland, Hong Kong, Kenya, South Korea, Lebanon, the UK and the US. Special coverage kicks off at 11:00pm IST on March 13 with a half-hour special hosted by Zain Asher and continues on through March 14 with a special #MyFreedomDay edition of CNN Talk at 5.30pm IST and live reports from participating schools throughout the day.

CNN will also showcase what these students, schools and communities are doing to fight slavery on Facebook, at @CNNFreedom on Twitter and Instagram and at CNN.com/myfreedom.

Leading up to #MyFreedomDay, CNN will air a new documentary film highlighting the plight of 20,000 children working as slaves on fishing boats in Lake Volta, Ghana. Sold by their parents for $250 USD - $150 USD – or in some cases exchanged for livestock – these children are forced to work from dawn to dusk untangling fishing nets in the murky waters of one of the world’s largest man-made lake.

Premiering March 2 at 12.30am IST, ‘Troubled Waters: A CNN Freedom Project Documentary’ both exposes this terrible practice and spotlights the aid workers and government officials working to rescue the children. The film is the first in a series of documentaries to be co-produced with the Kulczyk Foundation, and replays on Sunday, March 3 at 4.30pm IST, Monday, March 4 at 08:30am IST and Wednesday, March 5 at 11:00pm IST.
