FTS-PDA Final Project Report Child Protection Compact Interventions to Address Child Trafficking in Fishing in Ghana
The Growing Up Free (GUF) project has been implemented in Ghana since 2015 as part of the Child Protection Compact (CPC) agreement between the Government of Ghana and that of the United States to support efforts of the Government of Ghana and Ghanaian civil society to address child sex trafficking and forced child labor. The first phase i of the project was implemented from 2016 to 2019 in four regions—Central, Greater Accra, Oti and Volta—and focused primarily on addressing child labor trafficking, child sex trafficking, and other forms of abuse such as hazardous child labor and child marriage in fishing communities where such abuses are pervasive. While GUF focused primarily on trafficking for sex and labor, other forms of exploitation (child marriage, hazardous child labor), were also considered in the communities learning groups’ agendas because of their common occurrence in the project communities.
