    Human Slaves In Ghana

    We are an organization that aims to help eradicate child slave trafficking through the building of schools in impoverished regions in Ghana. By establishing schools in destitute villages, we provide local fisherman and their children with educational opportunities and alternative ways of earning their living; in exchange the trafficked children they employ are set free and returned to life with their families.

    We believe that all children have the right to freedom and to be educated; our funds are dedicated to the physical building and maintenance of local schools that serve to educate the child population of regions where child slavery is common, in the hopes of diminishing its reach and helping to eliminate some of its root causes. In addition, our funds enable the school to be successful by providing all necessary equipment, uniforms, and curricular materials.

    Our mission is to provide funding for schools in Ghana, in partnership with local populations that contribute in ways they can, and thereby become committed to their success. We intend for our schools to be a source of local pride, and an integral part of their communities. Our schools are staffed and built by members of the country in which they are located. We strive for the children of these regions—many otherwise doomed to a life of enslavement—to be educated in schools that provide an environment of integrity, compassion, and dedication to knowledge. We are a registered 501c3 charity organization and we hope to have a story on CNN of these monsters keeping children enslaved.
