“I am better off in school than helping to weed the farm, scaring birds away from the rice field and harvesting cocoa from my father’s farms. Thanks to the Child Protection Club for ensuring that I returned to school. Hopefully I can realize my dream of becoming a mechanical engineer in the future.”
"Before the women economic empowerment training organized by ICI, I was jobless for seven years."
"It was difficult to concentrate on studies because different year groups studied together in one classroom."
Child labour in Ghana is a multifaceted problem that needs to be addressed using a multi-sectorial approach.
