Sometimes the experience of one person tells the whole story. That’s certainly true in the case of Mabel, a former child slave in Ghana.
A film crew from the Discovery Channel has just released a mini-documentary that tells Mabel’s inspiring journey from slavery to freedom.
Mabel’s story is one of several Discovery Learning Alliance segments that will be used in classroom and community settings in Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya to teach the importance of education.
Mabel was forced to work as a child slave on fishing boats, but was rescued by FTS frontline partner Challenging Heights. She’s now in school and has big plans for the future.
“I want to become a nurse so I can prove to my family that I can make it in life,” she says.
