A placement with Patriots Stop Child Labour & Trafficking Project will involve working directly with children and their families, fishermen and schools to stop rampant child labour and trafficking practices in Ghana. The program aims to educate and raise awareness about children’s rights in the affected areas. Volunteers and interns work with project staff approximately five to eight hours a day and collaborate on every aspect of the project. Tasks include conducting interviews with child labour and trafficking victims and the fishermen who hire them, entering and analyzing the data, attending meetings with community leaders to discuss findings, negotiating solutions to rescue children, writing project reports and proposals for donors and assisting with daily office duties. Patriots Volunteers and interns also participate in the selection of children eligible for sponsorships to return to school. During the school year, volunteers and interns are instrumental in presenting a child labour and trafficking education programme to local school children and can also teach in local schools where rescued children study.
