According to the U.S. Department of State’s 2017 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report, Ghana is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children subjected to forced labour and sex trafficking. Internal trafficking of children is of particular concern as Ghanaian boys and girls are subjected to forced labour within the country in fishing, domestic service, street hawking, begging, artisanal gold mining and agriculture.
Since November 2012, IOM has been implementing a child protection and counter child trafficking initiative in 6 communities aimed at empowering community members to address and prevent child trafficking and child abuse occurring in the Volta Region. With support from UNICEF, IOM developed a 12 module Child Protection toolkit, called Free to Be Me. The modules were piloted in 6 communities and IOM expanded the pilot in 2015 to include 8 districts and 43 communities in the Volta Region.
