Also, in the Northern part of Ghana, at a town called Gambaga there is a Witch camp where people suspected of witchcraft are camped for the rest of their lives. These people are usually elderly people who have no means of livelihood. Majority of these people are women.
In the Volta Region of Ghana there is a system called the “Trokosi” system. In this system young virgin girls are sent to the trokosi shrines to serve the gods of the shrine and marry the priest whiles under slavery. These young girls are sent to the shrines for sins committed by their family members to appease the gods of that shrine. They are made to stay there till they grow into old women and die. They are also not allowed to go out. Some few organizations such as the Federation of Women Lawyers, and some NGOs have recently helped freed some of these women and resettled them in useful vocations.
