My name is Tomoko Shiroki, and I am the Managing Director and Co-founder of ACE. Thank you very much for supporting our efforts to end child exploitation in the world.
Since 2009, ACE has been implementing projects to solve the problem of child labor and child trafficking in the cacao-producing areas in Ghana.
In the beginning, it all started with one small activity in one village, and our projects gradually spread to 10 villages in two regions and so far we directly rescued 527 children from child labor, and have additionally helped to educate around 4,000 children from the project communities. Now, we currently implement our projects in 2 villages in Asunafo-South District in the Brong Ahafo region.
This year, 2019 is our 10th anniversary of the project! We would like to thank everyone who was involved and supported us over the years. Please take a look at the video we made to celebrate our 10th anniversary.
