When he was 13, he escaped and put himself through elementary school, then high school, then college. He become a banker but left his career to rescue child slaves. He has rescued hundreds of boys and girls from Lake Volta and inspired them to rescue others.
“With time, survivors of trafficking become the solution to the problem. That gives me a lot of hope.”
– James Kofi Annan
Here are some of them from our partners around the world:
Children from our program are now adults on staff; 7 students in university.
Raised more than 20 university graduates; 100% of children leaving our rehabilitation program have a technical qualification.
3 girls currently in college. Their example inspires others to see what is possible.
Participants have an 85-90% high school national exam pass rate with 4 kids in college and 2 in the US on scholarship.
Incidents of sexual abuse of girls have decreased in the communities where we are active.
Education equips children to defeat injustice and influence others to do the same.
We believe in the uncontrollable motivation of oppressed children to break the cycle of injustice for millions of other children.
Join us to rescue girls and boys from injustice and help them become men and women of influence.
We believe that lasting change comes from within. So we partner with high-impact local organizations with years of commitment to defeating injustice where they are.
Every child rescued and equipped can grow up to influence more and more and more.
By providing children rescue, nurture, and education, then inspiring, empowering, and supporting them to use that education for justice, each child influences more and more and more.
