About £7.50 or $15 if you live in Ghana and your mother sells you along with your three younger siblings.
Imagine the poverty you must be experiencing to feel you have to sell your children. At the time Abena Nyenyanu sold her four she was selling porridge to support them. She was reunited with them after five years under a scheme in Ghana to bring families back together.
A half-way house has been set up in Accra to help children who have been trafficked in this way. They are given medical treatment, schooling, counselling and life skills training before being brought back to their parents after several months. The parents are given income generating skills in case poverty will tempt them to do the same thing again.
Two years ago a law was passed in Ghana to allow prosecution of parents who sell their children to traffickers. The government wants to start enforcing the law, now that awareness of it is widespread. "The grace period is over".
