Child exploitation

Many of the children who suffer from exploitation do so because they have no other choice. They may also have been trafficked or forced into slave labour, either in their own country or somewhere internationally, and may be living a life of struggle, suffering and invisibility within the community.

Child exploitation occurs all over the world, and for many different reasons – either through underage employment, or through more serious cases of abuse such as the child sex trade and forced prostitution, forced labour in homes, restaurants, factories and farms.
