Many Westerners embrace globalization -- but do they grasp how profoundly their consumption and spending habits affect people thousands of miles away? Filmed entirely on location in Malawi, Ecuador, Nicaragua, India, and Guatemala, this five-part series illuminates what globalization means for citizens of those nations. Emotional and informative interviews with farmers, school teachers, community activists, and others reveal the human side of situations too often assessed only in terms of business and profit. -- back of jacket ; series statement.

Abstract:

Pt. 4 of the Fighting the Tide series examines India's immense child labor problem and the fight against it. The program contrasts this nation's status as the world's largest democracy with the fact that, inside its borders, 80 million children work physically exhausting jobs for minuscule wages. Incorporating interviews with Shanta Sinha, founder of the organization known as MVF, the video illustrates how the group coordinates community action against the exploitation of young people and creates bridge schools that help children with the transition from work to education. It also makes a strong case that child labor increases poverty levels. Portions have English subtitles. -- back of jacket info.
