End child trafficking in Ghana


Ghana is home to Lake Volta, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world. In the communities surrounding Lake Volta, where thousands of children as young as five years old are forced into slavery. They work up to 17 hour days in relentlessly grueling conditions, with no school and no escape.

The Rescue Race

The Rescue Race will raise essential funds for the next rescue mission to get 15 - 20 more children out of slavery and into our 65-bed rehabilitation shelter. These children will receive medical care, psychological therapy, nutritional recovery, daily education, and lots of love before being reintegrated into their home communities. By registering to run/walk or to fundraise for Challenging Heights, you and your friends can help make this all possible.
