Causes of Child Prostitution
The principal cause of prostitution is poverty. Parents often feel obligated to sell their children to pimps because their low salary does not allow them to meet the needs of their family. Poverty also becomes a cause of abandonment. This rejection forces children to leave their family environment to become street children. Vulnerable and in need of money, they are the main targets of operators who promise them work and remuneration.
Prostitution is a very lucrative activity compared to local salaries.
In Kenya, for example, a sexual encounter with a young girl under the age of 16 can cost around twenty euros.
Consequences for the Child
Child prostitution leads to negative effects on the wellbeing and mental health of the child later on in life, since they frequently become pimps themselves.
Access to Services
Sexually exploited children are uneducated children. Rejected by their relatives and marginalised by society, they have little access to healthcare and suffer extremely unhygienic conditions.
The spread of AIDS
Prostitution promotes the spread of HIV since numerous clients refuse to have protected sexual encounters with a child. The children are therefore vulnerable to many sexually transmitted infections.
Physical and Psychological illness
On a physical level, the damage to children includes vaginal tearing, physical after-effects of torture, pain, infection, or unwanted pregnancy.
