The Thailand and Myanmar border is referred to as “No Man’s Land” because it is filled with children being exploited. They have no one to fight for them.
A LOST GENERATION
In India, a buffalo costs $350…AND A CHILD COSTS $12. The ILO estimates that more than 165 million children, between the ages of five and fourteen, in the world today are involved in some type of forced child labor. Two children per minute are trafficked for sexual exploitation.
The majority of CHILDREN FORCED INTO COMMERCIAL SEX in Thailand are from Myanmar or the Hill Tribes along the border and 80% of all Thailand’s prostitutes are under the age of 16. There are over 264,000 CHILD SLAVES working in the brick kilns, carpet factories, or other forms of slave labor in Pakistan.
There are more than 700,000 child soldiers in Myanmar – CHILDREN USED AS SLAVES, SEX SLAVES – more than any other COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.
The area between the Thailand and Myanmar border is referred to as “No Man’s Land”. This area is filled with children that are being exploited because they have no one to fight for them.
