In partnership with the Ghana Baptist Convention, Rovaughna works at the Baptist Vocational Training Center in a ministry rescuing, rehabilitating and educating young women who had been victims of a cultural practice called Trokosi, which has elements of human trafficking. Rovaughna’s mental health and social work background have particularly equipped her for this work. Previously, she spent time in Africa using her counseling skills to rehabilitate young adults who had experienced substance and physical abuse, human trafficking, gang violence and issues of grief, depression and poor self-image. It was upon returning from this journey that Rovaughna felt God’s call to make such work her life’s mission.
