Abuse, trafficking and institutionalization cause trauma to a child and are interconnected.

  • Children who grow up in an abusive home are much more vulnerable to trafficking and institutionalization.
  • Children abandoned or given over to an orphanage at a young age are more vulnerable to trafficking and abuse.
  • Corrupt orphanages recruit and traffic children away from families to turn a profit from unsuspecting tourists. (Details)
