Lost in slavery on Lake Volta
Esther* grew up in rural Ghana, hours from the waters of Lake Volta. When a woman approached her parents, claiming there was a family near the lake who would send their daughter to school, they allowed the woman to take her.
The promise of an education was a lie.
Little Esther was enslaved when she was just six years old. She suffered in slavery for 10 long years. But when you watch her story, you'll hear about her resilience and strength in the face of oppression.
