Lost in slavery on Lake Volta

Esther* grew up in rural Ghana, hours from the waters of Lake Volta. But when a woman approached her parents, claiming there was a family near the lake who would send their daughter to school, they allowed the woman to take her.

The promise of an education was a lie.

Little Esther was enslaved when she was just six years old. You'll hear about her resiliency and strength in the face of oppression. Share her strength by giving a gift today. All gifts will be DOUBLED up to $292,600 if given by December 16th.
