Kofi is free today. Tens of thousands are enslaved in fishing villages on Lake Volta, the largest man made lake in the world. Kofi was enslaved very young and rescued at the age of four or five. I met him in a shelter where he was being rehabilitated from slavery. Kids need to learn how to play again, be at ease.

I made this image of Kofi at the well in the back of the shelter where he was bathing at the well. Picking up a big bucket of water he struggled to get it above his head and dump the delightful cool stream over his body. He giggled a lot.

A few months after I had returned home, I got news that Kofi had been reunited with his family. Who will Kofi become because someone decided to take a stand for him. When I look at him I see every child in the world.
