Challenging Heights promotes youth and family empowerment and children’s rights to education and freedom from forced labour in Ghana.


We provide educational support to hundreds of vulnerable or underserved children.


We rescue trafficked children and provide survivors with aftercare.


We support communities to build resistance to slavery and keep children in school.


We influence national policy and create advocates to fight modern slavery.

Staff at our Hovde Foundation House Rehabilitation Shelter meet each week to discuss any issues regarding the children and best practices to handle them. The social workers and shelter assistants become the children’s family while they get acclimated to life away from slave labour on Lake Volta. Each child has different needs and personalities, and we do our best to accommodate them all.
