Continuing Finding Refuge after SAS

Finding Refuge was started on Semester at Sea Fall 2010 by a group of SASers who went to a village near Lake Volta, Ghana. This village called The City of Refuge ministries is for orphaned children who had been trafficked for child labor in Ghana's fishing industry. It has been operating for three years and has been helping hundreds of children.

There mission is to "create a global awareness of child slavery in Ghana by establishing university and regional organizations that educate the public on the existence of slavery. Empower the mothers within the targeted fishing villages by providing education and training for sustainable jobs."  It's a great organization that my college's chapter is hoping to continue so we may help in ending child slavery in Ghana.
