Global Activism: Right to Be Free works to end child slavery in Ghana
We met Lori Dillon last February when she told us about her efforts create a local branch of the NGO, Right To Be Free. She did it to support her friend, Ghanaian Eric Peasah “who has dedicated his life to the rescue and rehabilitation of trafficked children.” For Global Activism, Lori is back, with Eric, who came from Ghana to spread awareness about slavery and indentured servitude of children in his country.
