World Tourism Day 2015: Sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism in Asia

September 18th, 2015

<span>Every year, Terre des Hommes Netherlands removes hundreds of children from exploitative and oppressive situations. Many of these are children in Asia that fall victim to child trafficking and sexual exploitation. A growing number of children in Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Nepal, the Philippines and Thailand end up in prostitution and behind the webcam. They end up in the arms of foreign men who often go unpunished. These children are vulnerable because of the extreme poverty in which they live and in the long run they are left physically, mentally and emotionally scarred. The situation of these children is difficult to grasp, and unfortunately their stories are all too common. Terre des Hommes Netherlands thinks this is unacceptable and therefore puts the problem on display with a series of photographs.</span>
