FREE CHILD SLAVES ON LAKE VOLTA

Imagine a five-year-old child, forced to work 17 hours a day untangling fishing nets underwater, cooking, cleaning, and serving their master. That's the reality for 21,000 children on Lake Volta, Ghana.1

Together, we will end child slavery in Ghana. Your donation will help rescue children on the lake and give them a future of freedom, education, and hope!

  • HIS Life
    is Connected to Yours




    Ebenezer's daily existence consists of minimal food, 17-hour-long workdays, and torturous treatment. He is forced to swim deep underwater to unhook heavy, tangled nets. Several of his friends have never resurfaced.

    This may seem like a far-off reality, but the truth is, we are more connected to Ebenezer than we think. Slavery exists in the fishing industry all around the world. In fact, 25% of all fish caught in Ghana ends up in European markets.
