Our Child Labour and Trafficking Rehabilitation Center project seek to rescue about 250 children from the worst forms of child labour and clutches of human traffickers, to provide quality medical care and education, to expose networks of human trafficking, to rehabilitate and reintegrate the rescued children, to create awareness, and to influence policy making related to child protection.

Challenge

Child labour and trafficking is predominant in the fishing communities along the Volta Lake of the Volta Region of Ghana. The region is described as the hub of child labour and trafficking due to the number of children working on the lake with average age between 4 and 10 years. Children suffer various injuries and health problems such as stings from fishes, fish poisoning, bruises, head injuries, and bone deformities. The children get drowned and are deprived of education and healthcare.

Solution

The project will collaborate with the police to rescue about 250 child victims, and to educate fishing communities along the Volta Lake about child rights. Rescued children will undergo rehabilitation at our Rehabilitation center with the help of our medical team, and be reintegrated back to their families. The center will provide optimal care for the children as we work at getting them quality basic education, counselling and healthcare, shelter and nurturing.

Long-Term Impact

Our programs are based on the theory of change aimed at creating a free country of child exploitation. The organization does not only help victims but also tackles the problem at its roots. The long-term impact is to contribute to the empowerment of the indigenous people, while raising awareness regarding the importance of child rights laws and enforcement, thus, reducing or eliminating the rate of child labour and trafficking.
