Episode summary:

We may read about sweatshops supplying the West with clothes, but here's the evidence. On the final stage of this extended jolt to the system, our young, fashion-conscious volunteers visit the biggest slum in Asia - Dharavi in Mumbai - to witness conditions in the stacked factories. The Brits are stunned by crumbling ceilings and suspiciously young workers, and gag in the streets outside at open sewers, scuttling rats and dead dogs. They're disgusted, but also refreshingly mindful of the problem's complexity. With their perceptions radically altered, they return home full of resolve, but not before they've painted a mural for schoolchildren rescued from labour. "This is the nicest day of my life," says one pupil, beaming. It's shocking, but in a resoundingly positive way.
