Provide Education to Prevent Child Labor in Ghana

Former Child Slaves Are Now In School!

Challenging Heights wants to say a big thank you to everyone who donated to its programs. Over the last period, your generosity has supported 35 former child slaves to return to school or commence learning for the very first time. Since we launched on Global Giving’s website in September 2010, the money donated has supported a total of 205 children into primary school.

With your generous support, we have been able to assist some of the most vulnerable children in the world out of enslavement by returning them to the classroom. As many families are unable to afford to send their children to school, children are vulnerable to trafficking networks where they are exploited, abused and starved of an education... and a childhood.

 These children are now on the road to recovery. The trauma and pain sustained and exploitation endured from the worst forms of child labour has ceased and the children are now free to be happy, confident children who love going to school and playing with their friends.

Your contribution has paid for tuition, school uniforms, sports materials and any other equipment that will assist with the children's education and school performance.

Unfortunately there is still a great need with thousands of children still enslaved in Ghana. With your continued support, Challenging Heights will be able to expand our programs and help more desperate children. Please continue to support Challenging Height’s efforts to transform the lives of vulnerable and at-risk young people in Ghana.

 Thank you very much for your generosity and ongoing support.


Challenging Heights Team.
