Over the past several months, Challenging Heights has made some amazing advancements in the field through empowering communities. In this quarter alone, Challenging Heights rescued 22 children from the Volta Region, rehabilitated and re-integrated 30 children back into their schools and communities, provided 15 families with microloans to start or expand their small businesses, and continued to engage leaders in 13 communities in and around the towns of Winneba, Senya, and Mumford to educate them to combat child trafficking on their own terms.
One way in which your donations have helped to educate and empower community leaders to fight child trafficking is by supporting the Child Community Protection Committees, or CCPCs. These committees consist of community-chosen members who monitor the children in their communities and educate families about the risks of trafficking. The CCPCs have illustrated great success in protecting children in the various communities in which Challenging Heights works. For example, due to CCPC training, several committee members were able to recognize suspicious trafficking behavior and prevent a bus containing 25 would-be child slaves from travelling from their community in Senya to the Volta region where they would have been forced to engage in backbreaking child labor.
Without your help, we would not be able to make such a significant impact on these various communities and in the individual lives of the children who now have access to a brighter future. By empowering a community to fight against child trafficking, you have helped prevent countless children in Ghana from engaging in the worst forms of child labor. For your generosity, all of us at Challenging Heights are incredibly thankful.
