CCFC Ghana part of consortium tackling child labour

CCFC, in collaboration with other NGOs in Ghana, formed a committee to tackle the child labour issue of “kayaye” (carrying loads of items on the head). The Tolon District Assembly has constituted a Kayaye Committee to investigate the background and causes of the phenomenon and come out with recommendations to stem it.

 This formed part of measures to tackle child labour in the district since most of those engaged in kayaye were school-aged children. Most school girls in the district were resorting to kayaye at the expense of education.
