Breaking the Chain Through Education (BTCTE) is a grassroots, non-profit organization that consists of individuals and donors who are deeply committed to eradicating child slavery in Ghana, Africa. By establishing schools in impoverished villages, BTCTE provides local fisherman and their children with educational opportunities and alternative ways to earn a living. In exchange, the children that were trafficked are set free and returned to life with their families.
