It costs $180 to send our new rescue boat onto Lake Volta to liberate 15 children from fishing slavery in Ghana. If you donate $180 (just $15 a month), we can send the boat twice. A generous foundation will match your contributions dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000 during our Doubling Down on Freedom Campaign.
Free the Slaves rescues change lives. When Felix was 6, a trafficker offered his dad $11 and the promise of a cow if the boy would work on fishing boats. Felix joined the many children who are forced to work day and night. They are trapped, frequently beaten, unable to escape. Now, Felix is back home. He has received the medical, psychological and educational support needed to resume a normal childhood.
There are many others whose childhoods have been disrupted. With your help, they can live free. And during our Doubling Down on Freedom summer campaign, you can have twice the impact.
