Facts

Increased development of Ghana’s tourism industry has made Ghana one of the most popular destination countries in Africa for the sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism.

Ghana was the first country in the world to ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and has continued to demonstrate its dedication to child rights through the ratification of many of the principal international treaties related to SEC.

Ghana has one of the highest child marriage rates in the world. On average, one out of four girls will be married before they reach 18 years of age.
