Difficult situations and sensitive negotiations are occupational certainties shared by all social workers, wherever they come from. In Ghana, where domestic violence, child trafficking and other forms of exploitation are widespread, the first phase of Project Abroad PRO’s anti-trafficking campaign required social worker volunteers to draw on a wide range of professional skills.
The primary objective of the project was the rescue and rehabilitation of three victims of child trafficking in the Lake Volta region. The eight specialist volunteers also began a program of community outreach in Kete Krachi, where they were located.
