Our goal in northern Ghana is to raise awareness of child trafficking as well as usher in education and advocacy.

In northern Ghana many of the children will be trafficked to the south before they reach the age of 12. Once trafficked, these children can be forced into fishing, farming, domestic work, and some of the girls are made to be head porters (transporting items on their heads). Some children are also trafficked to bordering countries—and to southern Ghana—for labour and sexual exploitation.

Children in poor regions of northern Ghana find themselves the product of tribal, traditional, and cultural practices that have become the ‘push factors’, forcing them into the hands of traffickers.

Ghana is one of Africa’s diverse and beautiful countries, located on the Atlantic coast and situated just a little north of the Equator. It is a country not only rich in scenery and wildlife, but also in natural resources, including gold.
