UN calls on Ghana to tackle child labour
Issued on: Modified:
The UN expert on slavery-like practices has called on the Ghanaian government to do more to tackle the problem of child labour. Gulnara Shahinian, who was in the West African nation last week, said that despite authorities' efforts, thousands of children across the country are still working because their parents cannot afford to send them to school. Yet one woman in Accra is taking the problem of child labour into her own hands. Our correspondent went to meet her.
