An additional 8 ex-child slaves were taken through training workshop and counselling on October 3, 2012 in Winneba in the Efutu Municipality of the Central Region of Ghana.  They were made up of 7 females and a male. The course content for the training included the following:

  1. Child labour and human trafficking
  2. Responsibilities of an apprentice
  3. Benefits of education
  4. The need to be focused on their studies and to avoid any bad behaviour.

 All 8 ex-child slaves have been enrolled in apprenticeship training of their choice 8th October, 2012. The boy chose carpentry, four of the girls chose dress-making, and the remaining 3 girls chose hairdressing. They have all been provided with their tools and materials and handed over to the various master craftsmen/women.

In summary, out of the 38 ex-child slaves identified and profiled, 18 have been trained and enrolled into the various apprentice training. Currently all 18 ex-child slaves are doing well and are receiving training from their respective master craftsmen and women.  The remaining twenty (20) ex-child slaves are ready to receive training and will be enrolled when funds are made available.
