Child trafficking has been a problem in Ghana, West Africa for more than 50 years. One former slave founded an organization to rescue as many children as he can, and a new documentary called “The Rescue List,” which is making its broadcast debut on PBS, tells the story.

We talk to the filmmakers behind the project, someone from the rescue organization, and the Indianapolis-based philanthropy group that decided to get involved.

Produced by Drew Daudelin.
