WHH Scholars Participate in Child Trafficking & Labor Day

On June 16, Western Heritage Home was among one of the selected institutions invited to participate in Child Trafficking and Labor Day. The event was sponsored by the Ghana Rubber Company Ltd. It was held at Manye Academy and was attended by older students, the Regional Director of Child Welfare, and other Social Welfare leaders. Some of the WHH Scholars put on a drama, written by Manageress Esi Biney.

The purpose of the meeting was to inform the children about the dangers of child trafficking and that forcing children to work on fishing boats, on farms, etc. not only prevents them from attending school, but also is illegal in Ghana. The children learned that helping their WHH family in daily chores, and helping their Home Mother is a good thing, but that work which is too hard physically, or keeps them from attending school, or is forced upon them inappropriately, is not good.
