Abstract: Kofi Azadavor is sitting stiffly on a bench under a mango tree on his family's compound, getting up every so often to tend the fire in the open-air kitchen. He looks smart in his school uniform of brown shorts and a blue-and-white checked shirt, but both school and family life are still fairly new experiences for the 10-year-old. Kofi only returned home to his village near Sogakope, a small town in south-eastern Ghana, in June. When he was just four years old, his mother sent him and his older brother, Mawuta, to live with their uncle in a fishing town 250km away. It was the end of Kofi's childhood and the start of his life as a slave.
