Child Prostitution

The Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children

Child Prostitution encompasses the exchange of sexual services for remuneration or for other forms of consideration, including food, housing, drugs, or other commodities or intangibles such as approval or care. It is an age old and global problem that has existed for centuries.

"It has rightly been called the ultimate evil. It denies children their fundamental rights. It has devastating psychological and physical consequences for them. It is a perversion of the natural order - adults should be there to protect and nurture children, not take advantage of their emotionally and physically vulnerable state." - Keynote address, Stockholm Congress 1996 by Peter Piot, Executive Director, UNAIDS

 

 

 

Historians will look back in puzzlement at the way our 21st century world tolerates the slavery of more than a million children in brothels around the world. - Nicholas D. Kristof, January 22, 2006

This brothel keeper and her slaves are in a red-light district in Mumbai, India. The women and girls used in prostitution may be exploited 10 to 40 times a night, sometimes keeping as little as 20 rupees (less than 50 cents) per encounter. The Madam takes the biggest cut for herself, then pays the landlord, the pimps, and her "protectors." [photo by Kay Chernush for the U.S. State Department]
