All over the world, people move to other countries or regions, in search of a better life. In Asia, 21 per cent of migrants are children and young people. They often face discrimination, abuse, neglect and exploitation, both in transit and at their destination. Also, child migrants risk becoming the victims of human traffickers. Every year, an estimated 1.2 million children become the victims of child trafficking. They end up in prostitution or criminality, or are forced to do dangerous and hard labour.
