An estimated 25,000 to 30,000 people in sub-Saharan Africa became victims of trafficking between 2000 and 2013. Over a quarter of them were children. Child trafficking happens internally as well as cross-border within and outside the region. Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda are all source, transit and destination countries for trafficked children. While trafficking is prohibited in these countries, there is a general lack of (technical) capacity and limited budget to effectively deal with the perpetrators.
