Children As Commodities According to the World Congress Against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children it has been estimated that every year one million children are forced into the multi-billion dollar sex trade Poverty is often quoted as the underlying cause of the sale of children into the sex trade but it is important to note that not all poor families sell their children What pushes a family to make money by selling a child has been called poverty plus the closing of options It often involves an already impoverished family facing unemployment and forced migration as well as the influence of raised expectations from contact with consumerism However some parents who sell their children into the sex trade do so unwittingly They are tricked by traffickers who promise to find their children lucrative jobs in the city Many remain ignorant of the eventual fate of their working children Trafficking Of Children Trafficking or the illegal moving and selling of human beings across countries and continents has long been outlawed by most national legislation and international human rights conventions This modern form of slavery continues in its most virulent form in the trafficking of children for sexual purposes Children whose families send them to the brothels as wage-earners could be called victims of soft or family-based trafficking Set against this are children who are unwillingly and unknowingly abducted drugged or otherwise dragged to the brothels These are the victims of hard or coercive trafficking Hard trafficking is often organized by syndicates who have the resources contacts and expertise to coordinate the movement of children illegally and clandestinely across borders and continents This industry is a flagrant and devastating abuse of children and often involves bribery kidnapping false documents sham marriages and adoptions bonded labor and violence Children who are trapped in the cycle of commercial sexual exploitation are not only physically abused beaten burned tortured and deprived of food light and movement
