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 their children in school.


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

Happy Ghanaian Independence Day! We continue to work towards the day where all of Ghana’s children are free from forced labour and attending school.
