Anas exposes international child trafficking ring in Ghana

Chained Children 23

Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has released a documentary on the increasing numbers of child trafficking in Ghana.

The feature project, christened “Chained by Begging” is a collaboration between Anas and OAfrica, a child support organisation.

The documentary exposes the phenomenon of how child begging is more than just children asking for money on the streets but how children are trafficked by adults and used for business purposes.

In “Chained by Begging”, Anas Aremeyaw Anas demonstrates that the recent increase in child beggars can in some cases be linked to cross-border
child trafficking.

According to the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child and section 87 (1-2) of the Children’s Act, 1998 (Act 560), child begging is child abuse and also prohibited by law.

It is considered as separation from family and exploitative child labour.
