Provide Education to Prevent Child Labor in Ghana

Dec 12, 2011

Thank you for helping is to keep our children 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 40 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 210 children into school.


Unfortunately the majority of families involved in our project are underprivileged, and therefore find it very difficult to afford the necessary school items, including books and uniforms, to send their children to school. This is particularly dangerous, as children outside of traditional schooling systems are not afforded the security of children who attend school and are more susceptible to falling victim to trafficking networks or being exploited within the labour force. 


With over 604 children enrolled within our school this semester and the ever-growing demand for education within our community, the program aims to ensure the provision of education is maintained for all our children, and most importantly, that our children are not sold, trafficked or exploited.


We need your support to keep our children in school!


Through the generosity of our supporters, we have been able to assist vulnerable children to return to the classroom where they are provided the opportunity to reclaim their lives and strive to be the future leaders of Ghana and the world!


Your generous support has paid for tuition, school uniforms, sports materials and any other equipment that assists in the children's education and school performance.


With your ongoing support and commitment, together we will ensure our beautiful children walk on the road to recovery. The traumatic experiences will diminish and our children will move towards a bright and wonderful future full of hope, laughter and happiness.


We ask that you kindly please continue to support Challenging Height’s efforts to transform the lives of vulnerable and at-risk young people in Ghana through Global Giving.


Thank you very much for your generosity and ongoing support.


James Kofi Annan and The Challenging Heights Team.
