International Justice Mission (IJM):
The project, Happietaria supports this year liberates enslaved children who are forced to work in the fishing industries of Ghana. Boat owners allure these kids with education in a city but in reality, they end up as slaves at the Volta lake. Their days consists of drawing water, throwing nets and untangle fishing-nets underwater. This work is life threatening and the circumstances perverse. The human-traffickers use violence and do not provide medical care. Many children lost hope and gave up their dreams. IJM liberates them and gives them their dreams back.
IJM attacks slavery on different levels. They enslave children in cooperation with the authorities. After that, they make sure the children receive the proper care to fully recover from their traumatic incidents. On top of that, IJM reforms the judicial system by providing training for police officers, judges, members of the church and other leaders. In this way, slavery is attacked at the source. IJM will be involved in the specific areas as long as needed. After this period a long-term functioning judicial system implemented by the Ghanaian authorities.
