BENEFITING: CHRIST CHURCH LAKE FOREST
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2012
Thirteen members of my church are traveling to Ghana to work with an organization called the IN Network. IN Network travels to the remote villages and negotiates with the high priests of these villages to end the practice of Trokosi slavery. (I am fairly certain I won't be doing this.) Once the girls have been freed, they are taken into the International Needs Vocational Center where they are provided education, counseling and vocational training. (I'll be at the Vocational Center helping out anywhere they need help.) They also attend church. When the girls leave the Vocational Center, they are given tools to continue working and are able to apply for small business loans. I will be in Ghana passing out medication, painting the clinic, talking to the women, etc.
But, I need your help getting there. The trip to Ghana costs $3200. I am raising funds to defray as much of that cost as possible.
