GHANA: Rescue Mission for Vulnerable Girls
Sexual exploitation of children is “rampant and out of hand” in Ghana
In Ghana, the government has declared sexual exploitation of children “rampant and out of hand.” Before they are even teenagers, many girls are lured into prostitution due to poverty, peer pressure, broken homes, and sheer ignorance. Tragically, due to an influx of workers for a growing oil industry, child prostitution is on the rise.
These young girls need the healing and comfort only God’s Word can offer. Trauma, guilt, shame, and hopelessness plague the victims of these brutal acts, and the abyss of pain and fear threatens to lead them to despair and suicide. Without rescue and restoration, they have little hope.
In the time it takes to read this sentence, three women or children worldwide will have been sexually trafficked and exploited – a victim every two seconds.
In Ghana, 40% of girls are victims of sexual exploitation before they reach the age of thirteen. Most of them get pregnant around 15 years old.
Rescue Mission reaches 10,000 girls in over 200 school with good news that Jesus Christ offers them a new life and hope for their future

95% of rescued girls are involved in Scripture engagement programs. The majority of these young girls actively engage with God’s Word. 60% willingly leave the sex trade and publicly share their testimonies with their peers.
