Challenging Heights  Challenging Heights works to prevent child trafficking, reduce child slavery, and promote children’s rights. #stopslaveryghana

What a way to conclude the year 2018! Our rescue team has just returned from a rescue mission, having rescued 42 boys and girls who were being held in slavery. This is the largest single rescue operation we have held since the beginning of Challenging Heights! We will give you more information in the coming week.

This Giving Tuesday, we ask that you remember Challenging Heights in your giving as we are presently on a rescue mission to free 30 enslaved boys and girls on Lake Volta. Our team is excited that 10 children have already been rescued, and the operation is still spreading. Please help us to finish this year strong.⠀

He’s 11 years old and is the 8th child of nine children. According to the child, his mother took an amount of money and sold him to a slave master. The child was sent to Yeji to work on the lake. He spent three years diving into the lake as well as being forced to do domestic work. He was physically and verbally abused. He was rescued by Challenging Heights.

She is estimated to be 15 years old but does not know her real age. She is the second born of 5 children from the same father. Her father is a fisherman and her mother is jobless. Her aunt took her to the lake to work for the husband. The aunt’s husband beat and insulted her. On top of that, she did domestic and fishing work. Challenging Heights rescued her from Lake Volta.

The Senya Vocational School offers training for young people in two vocations: sewing and catering. These vocations are traditionally dominated by women, and as such, the majority of the past and present students are women. The programme lasts for two years, at the end of which, each graduate writes standardized examinations and receives the nationally-recognized NVTI certificate. In addition to recognition, this certificate affords graduates the credentials necessary to pursue further levels of vocational education. At present, the Centre only offers the first level of vocational training.

As we get ready for #givingtuesday, we are focusing on raising funds for our Senya Vocational School. We are in need of a hostel and electricity. Many of the students live outside of town and can’t afford to rent. We are here working to make every student’s dream a reality. Please consider donating to Challenging Heights on November 27th for #givingtuesday.

“When Nicholas came for me one morning, my mother told me to go with him. He took me to Akosombo the next day. Upon our arrival, he instructed me about the work I would be doing. He told me I would be dragging and casting fishing nets.
Most of the days we set off to the lake as early as 5:00AM and returned as late as 10:00PM.
He yelled at me. He screamed at me. He made me feel terrible about myself.
I didn’t attend school but his children did. They didn’t even work on the lake. I was the one who did most of the work.
I asked Nicolas about my mother if she would be coming for me but he refused to answer me. I spoke to my mother a few times but I wasn’t allowed to ask her questions or complain to her.
I didn’t like working for him because the job was terrible. When I got sick, he refused to send me to the hospital. I hated everything about it.
I was so scared of being on the Lake. I wouldn’t want to wish my experience on anyone.” *
