Combating child labour in Ghana through education

12 February 2021

On the edge of Lake Volta in Ghana lies the town of Kpando, a community largely reliant on fishing and farming for income generation. It’s a region in which child labour and trafficking, particularly to work in the aforementioned industries, remains widespread, as many parents cannot afford to send their children to school. Some estimate that as many as one third of children aged six to 14 are affected. It is often dangerous work, with no pay, little food, and long hours.

Here we’re working with the Macdellar Sons of Grace School to improve options for struggling families. Together with our help, our partners are providing a safe space for hundreds of at-risk and rescued children to gain an education.
