Summary

This project will support the reintegration of 50 survivors of child trafficking. Each child will have their school fees paid including their school lunch fee, receive a school uniform and all other learning materials, receive health insurance, & their caregiver will be assisted with a livelihood stipend. Additionally, each caregiver receives training on children's rights, the dangers of trafficking, reproductive healthcare, & parenting. This is critical to ensuring they are not re-trafficked.

Challenge

There are 49,000 children, as young as 4 years old, working in the fishing industry on Lake Volta in Ghana, & more than half of them have been trafficked there. Many children that are rescued from the lake still run the risk of being re-trafficked. Challenging Heights aims to end child trafficking in Ghana's fishing industry, & one of the ways we do that is through our rescue, rehabilitation, & reintegration program. Our reintegration program is critical to ensuring they are not re-trafficked.

Solution

Challenging Heights reintegration program is integral to ensuring the children we rescue are not re-trafficked. We ensure each child has the opportunity to attend school, receives proper medical care, and weekly visits by staff to monitor their progress. Their caregivers receive education on children's rights, the dangers of trafficking, reproductive healthcare, and parenting, along with financial support. This eliminates many of the factors that leave children vulnerable to being re-trafficked.

Long-Term Impact

This project will ensure that 50 children will not be re-trafficked to Lake Volta, allowing them to pursue their goals and reach their full potential. This also contributes to Challenging Heights' aims to end child trafficking in Ghana's fishing industry.
