Victims on Lake Volta

Ghana is a country in Western Africa. One of its largest industries is fishing on lake Volta, a large man-made lake created in 1965. For many years now, thousands of families have been selling their children as slave labor to many of the fisherman on the lake. Some defend it as young children learning a trade, while many others view it as child trafficking and are working hard to end it. “Victims on Lake Volta “ presents the views of some of the people who live in Ghana and are intimately involved in the day to day struggle of dealing with this problem, along with commentary by Angela Rose Ellington, the producer of this film as well as her 2019 film “The Cinderella Effect: The Angela Ellington Story.”
