When the Semester at Sea ship carrying Bob Schultz docked in Ghana, Schultz had no idea what he might do there. But by the time he left, he knew what he was going to do with the rest of his life.
Among his options was the chance to visit an orphanage. Most of the residents were refugees from child trafficking in the fishing industry — child slaves. Schultz and several other students rolled up their sleeves. They started a nonprofit organization, FindingRefuge, to increase awareness and provide assistance to the kids.
“It changed my perspective,” he says. “How can slavery still exist today? If you think you can make a difference, come to USD.”
