Myanmar has a young population. A quarter of the 56 million inhabitants is under 25 years of age. Most of them grow up in rural areas. In (extreme) poverty.
The country has many different ethnic groups. Ethnic minorities such as Rohingya are discriminated against and disadvantaged in Myanmar. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have fled violence and live in extreme poverty in camps at home and abroad. Children are particularly vulnerable to sexual exploitation, child labour, child trafficking and unsafe migration.
Education is not yet a matter of course for many children. Many children are being exploited. They have to work at a young age to help the family. In the flourishing tea trade or as child soldiers. More and more children are becoming victims of sexual exploitation due to the growing tourism.
We fight against child exploitation in Myanmar. We offer children a safe place, education, medical help and legal support. We take action with governments and educate communities about children's rights.
We offer emergency aid to Rohingya children and their families fleeing violence in Myanmar. Fight with us. Stop the exploitation of children in Myanmar.
Together with experienced partners we are working towards a world without child exploitation, where young people can feel safe today and better about tomorrow. Join our fight.
