Ghana’s Child Slaves

Watch the negotiations for the release of a child from slavery. Adults and children describe how child trafficking has impacted their lives and the communities they live in. One grandmother describes her reasons for sending her orphaned grand-children to work as slaves at Lake Volta.

Johnbull and Stacy Omorefe have founded City of Refuge Ministries, a Christian nonprofit organization located in Ghana, West Africa. They work tirelessly to spread the word of the severe injustices occurring on Lake Volta. Their passion and desire for change is infectious.

City of Refuge provides rescued children with a home and education at their Children’s Village in Doryumu, Ghana. Autumn Buzzell is the director of their thriving school Faith Roots International Academy. Ten to fifteen students, or about ten percent of all students, are rescued child slaves. Most other students are from the surrounding villages.
