Section 28 of Ghana’s 1992 constitution states that, ‘every child has the right to be protected from work that constitutes a threat to his health, education or development. The Parliament of Ghana has also passed the Children’s Act (Act 560 of 1998), which altogether protects the child from the labour and trafficking.
We must do everything in our power to end Child labour and trafficking.
