When we travel, we are reminded of our precious grandchildren. We see their faces in the smiles and tears of impoverished children and are aware of the stark contrast in their lives. While we are grateful for the comfort and safety of our grandchildren at home, we are distressed by the homelessness, starvation and indentured servitude of so many others. Through the projects featured here, you can make an immediate, positive and sustained difference in the lives of children around the world. We hope you will join us.
Since 2002, IOM and its partner NGOs and Government agencies have been working to rescue, rehabilitate and reintegrate children trafficked to the fishing industry in Brong-Ahafo and Volta regions of Ghana. Trafficked children are forced to work under hazardous and exploitative conditions. Previous funding has allowed 732 children to be rescued and reintegrated. However, many trafficked children remain in the fishing industry and we need your support to help them. Become a PARTNER FOR FREEDOM!
