Tuesday, April 1, starting at 6:30pm. The Metuchen High School cafeteria and auditorium became a place where people came together for one cause – in support of MHS Breaking the Chain Club’s annual dinner. Entertainment that night included movies, slam poetry, choir performances, and dance by the students of Metuchen High School. $10 got you dinner and entertainment. More importantly, everyone was there in support of Breaking the Chain Through Education’s efforts to rescue Ghana’s enslaved children!
Breaking the Chain Through Education is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) dedicated to eradicating child slavery in Ghana, Africa. It have rescued 40 children, reunited them with their families, and currently these children are attending school, some for the first time. In addition, in order to reduce the need for child labor, it has built a school for 250 children in a remote and impoverished area.
It is a unique grassroots organization. Close to 100% of funds raised by BTCTE go directly to serve its mission. It has no salaried members or overhead costs aside from the printing and publishing of materials (less than 1% of our donations). Its goal is to continue to rescue children that have been trafficked and restore them to a life of dignity and education.
