Live! From Ghana!

Journey for Change: Empowering Youth Through Global Service has joined forces with Touch A Life Foundation on From Captivity to Capitol Hill, an innovative partnership that focuses on advocating for the elimination of child trafficking, with an emphasis on addressing child slavery on Lake Volta in Ghana.

Five Journey for Change Global Ambassadors, all descendants of slaves, have traveled from Brooklyn, NY to Ghana for the inaugural mission from March 5-14 to join Touch A Life Foundation child trafficking survivors for a transformational week of education and service. The trip will culminate with a fact-finding mission on the waters of Lake Volta and the completion of a school for child trafficking survivors in the Kete Krachi region of Ghana.

In April 2010, the Journey for Change Global Ambassadors and other program participants will travel to Washington DC and New York, NY to highlight the issue of child slavery and share firsthand their experiences with US Government leaders, the international community and other key stakeholders.
