What is the Federation of Faith Leaders?

Global Freedom Network believes passionately that in the interconnected but unequal world we live in, faith leaders can play a crucial role in supporting governments and societies navigate the most complex problems that the 21st century throws at us.


We decided after meeting with faith leaders in Ghana that we needed a single platform so that faith leaders can share best practices and collaborate on work they do within their countries.

Signatories to the Joint Declaration of Religious Leaders Against Modern Slavery may join this international group of faith leaders so they may build a community of ethical leadership in the fight against modern slavery.

Faith leaders in Ghana have already cooperated on several initiatives and plan to continue their valuable work together:

  • December 2021: International Migration Day Campaign run in Ghana.
  • June 2022: Global Freedom Network and the Ghanaian Federation of Faith Leaders in partnership with the Anti Human-Trafficking Unit of the Ghanaian Police Service and major bus companies launched a cross border campaign by placing posters on buses across the country to raise awareness about human trafficking and inform people where to denounce any suspected case of trafficking.
    • The cross-border awareness campaign was a success. On the back of this campaign, we are now looking at expanding on it by incorporating these posters in places of worship across the country.
  • Since launching the Faith For Freedom app in early 2022, Global Freedom Network has been working with its partners across Africa to produce more regional resources and expand the app’s reach as well as incorporating organisations to the Referral Pathways program.

How we can help you

Global Freedom Network and our partners create assets and resources that help faith leaders, their teams and faith-based organisations understand modern slavery and empower them to take action in their communities. Explore our library of resources and see our work in action.
