Now in its third year, the CNN Freedom Project is a campaign aimed at ending modern-day slavery by amplifying the voices of the victims, highlighting success stories and helping unravel the criminal enterprises trading in human life.

In the Cambodian region of Sway Pak sex tourists will pay hundreds of dollars for sex with prepubescent virgins. Though the practise is illegal and the national anti-trafficking police unit is now under new, hard-line leadership, dozens of girls – some as young as five or six years old – are trafficked each day.

‘Every Day in Cambodia’ focuses on the work of American activist Don Brewster, as he campaigns for the rescue of these girls and the capture of their abusive traffickers.

Academy-award winning actress, UN Goodwill Ambassador and Freedom Project advocate Mira Sorvino visits Cambodia and beyond, speaking to Brewster and some of the survivors of the Sway Pak trafficking ring. Sorvino urges governments to prosecute those who participate or enable child sex slavery.

2013 has been a year of devastation, courage and triumph; from the Boston bombings, the destruction left in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, and the courageous activism of Malala Yousafzai, CNN has witnessed every breath-taking second. In a programme dedicated to reflecting on the stories that have made this year remarkable, Becky Anderson hosts ‘Defining Moments 2013’.

As the world’s news leader and RTS News Channel of the Year, CNN has been at the frontlines of each of the year’s major news events. With unparalleled access, the network has reported quickly, accurately and impartially on stories from around the world.

2013 brought many incredible political shifts around; the global super powers flexed their muscle in unexpected ways. Christiane Amanpour sat down with a newly elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Revelations of NSA phone hacking threatened to undermine long-time allies. In Egypt, the ruling president Mohammed Morsy was swept from power in the midst of a violent protest, whilst in Syria a bloody civil war rumbled into its second year.

There was also cause for optimism, as the world’s growing affection for a newly elected Pope points to an evolution for the Catholic church, and a quick glimpse of a future King captured the hearts of the world as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed Prince George into the world.
