A Vicious Cycle
What Perpetuates the cycle?
Extreme poverty and lack of education are key factors leaving children vulnerable to this cycle
Roughly 1.2 million children have been forced into child sex trafficking
Approximately 15 million children are enslaved to bonded labor
Impoverished children are held captive to work off generational debt that is impossible to pay off
Generational poverty and desperation are some of the leading causes as to why children are taken advantage of and enslaved in bonded labor
Society considers these children worthless and their families sell them into marriage as property where they become trapped in domestic slavery
Severe poverty leads to chronic malnutrition, child begging and young girls being sold into marriage
Begging on the street and domestic slavery are unfortunate practices required to survive
