Event description
Tearfund brings you The Trafficked Fisherboys of Lake Volta. A story of hope and empowerment with Tearfund New Zealand's Kerrie Palma.

About this Event

Lake Volta, Ghana is the world's largest man-made lake sustaining thousands of lives but its fishing industry is built on the backs of vulnerable children.

For more than 50 years, the Akosombo Dam at the lake's southern end has played a major role in meeting Ghana's needs for drinking water and electricity. The lake is the source of life for scores of small settlements that cluster at its banks. Entire communities make their living on the boats or in the fish markets.

But hundreds of fishermen or, more accurately, fisherboys are not there by choice.

Come and hear more about the incredible story of how these trafficked boys were helped out of poverty by Tearfund’s partner Compassion Australia through sponsorship and support.
