Don Bosco has 5 child protection centres where children found to be at risk are sent and re-socialized to fit into the community.

Some of the females brought are rescued from abusive people, prostitution and early marriages.

They are given accommodation, food, health care and training to empower them for the future.

In Sierra Leone our work with young prostitutes has national recognition because of the transformation and peace it has brought these traumatized girls and women.

In Ghana when rescue is made of girls being trafficked they are brought to our centres in Ashiaman Ghana to be given their right to a befitting childhood including education.
