Anas To Release Video On Illegal Child Beggars In August

As part of the OAfrica #KidsOurFuture campaign, investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas looked into the increasing numbers of children begging illegally on the streets of Ghana.

Further studies and investigations conducted by "Tiger Eye PI" revealed the phenomenon of child begging is more than just children asking for money on the streets.

It was observed that children were trafficked by adults and used as buisness. Children are denied of their right to education, good health, nutrition, protection and choices and do dangerous work for the benefit of the traffickers, who buy and sell them across borders with impunity.

This observation culminated in the ten minute film "Chained by Begging" with an original score by Stonebwoy to be shown on all major TV networks across the country in the month of August.
