GCC Speaker: James Kofi Annan

annon On September 12, 2016 at 7am, members of the Global Citizens Club had the opportunity to meet and hear the first hand account of James Kofi Annan from Ghana who was sold into child slavery on Lake Volta at age six and later escaped.  He is the founder and president of Challenging Heights, an organization geared towards ending child enslavement. Today, Challenging Heights is one of the largest rescue forces in West Africa for children who are victims or at risk of being trafficked.
