Khazana Programme

Challenging Heights has worked with Butterflies since 2013 to deliver the Khazana Programme. Designed to improve financial literacy in children aged between 8 to 18, the programme is targeted at survivors of human trafficking and at risk young people. We currently have nine branches in operation which are based in the urban centres of Winneba and Senya Breku and the rural settlements of Achiase and Benease. The goals of the programme also include providing life skills such as training on health (including first aid delivery and personal hygiene), and developing media skills to beneficiaries to enable them to advocate on children’s rights, child labour and trafficking. So far, over 300 children have benefitted from the classes, developing financial skills, understanding how to save money, how to work with financial institutions, and have acquired a variety of valuable life skills.
