6. Child Labor

Children below the age of 14 are made to work in developing countries like India. Parents usually think of them as extra hands to help out and make a living which is why most families have 5 or 6 babies within a short period of time. Their salaries practically amount to nothing and their working conditions are wretched.

 

7. Child Prostitution

According to UNICEF, there are over 50,000 child prostitutes only in Philippines. The problem is especially rampant in India where 200,000 girls are sold to those who look over the ‘business’. Most of them are below 18 years of age and are treated dreadfully.

 

8. Child Pornography

Child Pornography on the internet is not only illegal but also extremely unscrupulous, unethical and immoral in every way possible. This does not stop pedophiles from kidnapping children under 10 and forcing them to act in obscene films.

 

9. Slavery

About 200,000 children in Africa alone are forced to work likes slaves. Most of them are taken from countries like Yemen, Pakistan and Bangladesh and are made to work as camel jockeys. Because they are in a foreign land and do not know how to go back home, they have no choice but to listen to the employers and do as they say.

 

10. Military Use

Children are recruited by armed opposition groups and other forces and are usually under 18 years of age. They are manipulated and are sometimes forced to shoot at their own families.
