This project rescues, counsels, rehabilitates and reintegrates trafficked children & child laborers at Agbogboloshie and Alabaa, Ghana, back into the Northern Communities with educational sponsorship.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
This project needs financial, medical and material resources to save about 75,000 children forced to migrate from the North to work as child laborers and prostitutes at Agbolgloshie and Alabaa, Ghana. They live and work in deplorable and inhuman conditions. Their lives are threatened by diseases like cholera, malaria, HIV/AIDS due to acute congestion and poor sanitation in these slums. Our project gives them hope and a chance to reunite with their families and make their dreams come true.
How will this project solve this problem?
Our project gives medical information, free health care, counseling, rehabilitation, reintegration and educational support to trafficked/street children and child laborers. Their families are also empowered through our micro finance scheme.
Potential Long Term Impact
Our project will help prevent future child migration and trafficking from the North to the South as we address practices and problems that facilitate it. When many are returned and successfully integrated, future migration will not be attractive.
