International Needs Ghana seeks to implement a project to support 400 children who are at risk of being trafficked to go to school. The parents of these children will also receive Counseling support to improve to enable them better protect their children to complete school even after the end of the project period. Community groups will also be trained to raise awareness on the dangers of child trafficking to help monitor the progress of the children placed in schools.
Many children in the North Tongu District of Ghana are at risk to trafficking. Most of these children are primary level education drop outs or have never been to school at all. They are trafficked and engaged in child labour activities such as fishing and it related activities. The children are made to work so hard at the expense of their education and live in very difficult abusive conditions.
This project seeks to put a total of 400 children back to school. This would be done by withdrawing 50 children already trafficked to be engaged in fishing and its related activities and re-integrate them to their families and support them to go school or learn a trade. The project will also target 350 children who are severely at risk to be trafficked; these children would be prevented from being trafficked and placed in schools and provided with educational materials and school uniforms.
This Project would offer 400 children who would have been denied the right to education the opportunity to go school to have access to education and have a better future. The Parents of these children will be supported with counseling services improve their knowledge of child protection issues and thus enhance their ability to cater for the education and other needs of their children.
